Alternity Science Fiction RPG Demo Pack

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the new Alternity Science Fiction Roleplaying Game, the game where you get to create your own future! The game shares a name and heritage with a popular RPG from the 1990s, and is a game that embraces all genres of science fiction, from low-tech post-apocalyptic wastelands to ultra-tech space opera. 

In this Demo Pack, you'll find a Quickstart guide for the Alternity rules system, an adventure scenario, and 6 pregenerated characters so you can get straight to the action. We've also included an initiative tracker you can print out to keep your game running smoothly.

If you like what you see, the Alternity Core Rulebook is available now!

About the Alternity Team: The three Sasquatches are David Noonan, Richard Baker, and Stephen Schubert. Together, they bring over 50 combined years of RPG experience. Rich was one of the primary designers on the original Alternity game back in the 1990s, along with Bill Slavicsek, who is also helping out with this relaunch. As a company, Sasquatch Game Studio created the Primeval Thule sword and sorcery campaign setting for multiple game systems (available on DriveThruRPG), the Princes of the Apocalypse adventure for 5e, and the Ultimate Scheme board game.

The Institute introductory adventure that is supposed to be part of this (based on the text of the core rules) isn't included.

You gents really should update this if you're leaving it out here; while not _radically_ different from the final game, there are elements that changed and they still seem present in the quickstart (the Command skill for example).

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.
