Zodiac Empires Player's Guide

Watermarked PDF

The realm of Vathis, having just survived the Darkest War, is a world in an age of early industrialization where the line between magic and technology is obscure at best, and oftentimes indistinguishable. Rich in history and lore, adventurers roam lands dotted with sprawling empires, devious hidden cults, and ruins shrouded in darkness. While revered heroes march headlong into battle, airships have taken flight, transforming both land and sky into battlegrounds. Gritty realism and high fantasy come together in Zodiac Empires, a world built on the memory of great wars, political intrigue, and imperialism.

The Zodiac Empires Player's Guide contains 150 pages of: 
•5 Unique Races, each with their own history, culture, and rules. 
•14 nations to call home for the characters in the world. 
•A series of 20+ airship classes to assist in overland travel and adventuring. 
•A pantheon of 17 Deities and assorted other faiths. 
•150+ items, materials, and services to fulfill the needs of the Vathis adventurer. 
•Eldria, the magical resource that fueled our industrial revolution. 
•Over 40 organizations to join, with membership requirements and benefits. 
•20+ Propaganda and Travel posters that can be found on the walls of the world. 
•Rules for playing Starcalled, and all of the background that goes with it. 
•A fully detailed digital map found at 

Zodiac Empires is a fantasy campaign setting for use with tabletop RPGs. While most fantasy settings are static in time and do not progress further than their published state, this is not the case with Zodiac Empires. Our world is designed to be a truly dynamic and player-interactive campaign setting. 
Zodiac Empires is compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition.

Printed versions are available directly through Amazon.

Is the material in the Player's Guide excerpted from the Campaign Setting book or are they two distinct books?

Quite different from one another. Everything in the Player's Guide is written as if you lived in the world, so all of the secrets are in the Campaign Setting, but the Player's Guide has all of the detailed racial information, what it's like to live in the nation, and benefits and membership of organization.

As I stated on the Campaign Setting PDF link, we were waiting for approval through DriveThruRPG for the PDF fulfillment. If you have not gotten your emails, you should receive them by Sunday Night EST.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
