Epiphany 2e

Epiphany 2e


noble_sm.jpgEpiphany is set in the land of Hyperborea, surrounding the opening to the Inner Earth at the North Pole. They prosper in the light and warmth coming from the Inner Earth, in divinely ordained separation of class and status that manifests in actual advantages to those more blessed. A person of high status is better at what they do than someone of lesser status and the same skill. Everyone strives to better themselves, but it takes more than competence. It takes great deeds to draw the attention of the gods.

With this evidence of the divine plain to see, religion and faith play a great role in society, with separate societal classes for the Priests who channel divine power directly, and the Sorcerors of the Collegium who manipulate the energy that permeates all things. The Nobility rule, the Artisans craft and the Soldiers protect.

And so it has been for longer than there are historical records to document. But there is unease in Hyperborea. The barbarians of the Inner Earth are more restless than normal, fabricating stories of Lizardmen attacks on outlying settlements, and while the auguries and omens are indeed unusual, nothing has ever challenged the primacy of Hyperborea and nothing ever will. Or so the Archons say.

Epiphany uses a setting-specific system designed to make the unique nature of Hyperborean society part of the game mechanics. It has enough realism to keep you on your toes, enough heroism to let you take chances, and simple enough to let you concentrate on the role-playing and not the rule-playing.

Epiphany includes the 146 page rulebook (including a 10 page starting adventure), the separate Bysand Alhalsu 13 page adventure and a 10-page player handout, outlining Hero creation and Hyperborean society (the handout is the publisher preview).

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.
