Fireborn: Player's Handbook


Players simultaneously roleplay in the modern and mythic ages. In the mythic age, dragons reign supreme and sorcerers make pacts with dark beings, threatening the world with their power-mad schemes. The present day is a dark and ominous time, poisoned by mystery and the occult. Magic has returned, and every secret power is out to control it. The common man is caught in the middle of countless power struggles. But the players are not common men. They are the dragons of old, reborn in human form, and they are the only ones with the abilities to prevent a return of the catastrophe that doomed the mythic age so long ago... but in order to stop the end, the dragons must remember who they were in the beginning. This is the player's handbook.

Any chance we might get a POD version of the book?

As this is an long out of print product, that never really did very well commercially, I don't think FFG sees much reason to support a POD verion of the book if other rpg' lines are much more popular.

I don't know what the current sales are for the pdf's of Fireborn, but I doubt it gave them much icnentive to go for a printed edition again, it's a game mostly forgotten even by those who originally bought it.
It's a shame, but can;t blame FFG to stick to lines actually bringing in the money right now rather then things they need to dust off after layers of dust.

Now, it has been moved to EDGE and I will buy a POD right away... I don't like PDF books at all, but I would really love some additional copies of this and the Gamemaster's Guide too

Seems EDGE finally got their website up and running and gearing up to publish books again under the EDGE imprint...

I fear that any Fireborn plans are still in the freezer at best, if not entirely forgotte about at this point.
If you want a POD, I think it's better to send them an email directly as I doubt they will read anything on here.

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.
