Fading Suns 4 - Streamlined Rules Booklet

Suggested Price €1,85

The Fading Suns 4th edition rules presented in the Character Book provide a robust way to resolve all sorts of actions your characters might take, while giving players a lot of freedom for how they spend their resources (mainly, victory points).

But all those resources can prove a bit difficult to handle when you’re playing away from the table. Hence, this streamlined version of the rules! The goal is to make it easier to run Fading Suns with your friends online or through theater-of-the-mind style play.

In these streamlined rules, you won’t keep track of tokens from one turn to the next, but there’s still some strategy to consider each turn: are you acting defensively, aiming for maximum precision, or going for the greatest effect? Longtime Fading Suns players will find these rules reminiscent of previous editions, but with more flexibility.

These streamlined rules rely on the Character Book. We assume you have that book and can use it to reference information on characters, traits, actions, equipment, and most everything not included in this booklet. The simple yet dramatic differences are described in the Streamlined Rules chapter and the Converting from 4th Edition chapter.

These 'streamlined' rules seem like they not only simplify but also rebalance the system to some degree. I wish they had been the original v4 rules to begin with. [...]

Excellent work. Deserves to have its own rule book with all the details that come with it. I like this version much better than the basic 4th edition. [...]

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.
