This 88-page companion book is what happened next since the main rulebook came out in 2014, a collection of the two released adventures and articles that have come about due to fans questions about the game and setting.

Finding Your Way in the River of Heaven (page 4). This article is a short-cut to understanding the default setting, or rather two settings that co-exist side by side in the main rulebook by Newt Newport.

Organisations (page 8). The main rulebook describes many organisations, and this article By Paul Mitchener fleshes them out so that you can create detailed non-player characters. Also, if your players want to have characters that belong to an organisation, reaping the benefits and living by the obligations that membership brings, these rules explain that as well.

Quick Starts (page 18), in many ways a follow up to Finding Your Way… this article by Newt Newport explains how to quickly draw together the elements needed for a River of Heaven campaign using a questionnaire. As examples, it contains two completed questionnaires. One for a military mercenary campaign and the other for a River of Heaven themed heroes in a spaceship game.

Adventure Seeds (page 22) by Paul Mitchener and Newt Newport gives you more example set-ups for adventures using the setting.

Subspecies Clarification (page 26) by Newt Newport is my response to some questions that were asked over on about how the variant human subspecies’ in the setting work in play.


Finally, I’ve collated the first two published adventures by John Ossoway, which with the introductory scenario Reunion (which is now in the current version of the main rulebook), can form a starting trilogy of adventures, as detailed in Finding Your Way…

  • The Last Witness (page 28) by John Ossoway. Step-ship returns from a deep space mission, and the characters are hired by a religious group who believe that God is an E.T. to investigate.
  • Message from Furthermost (page 59) by John Ossoway. 300 years ago, the Pilots Guild sent a colony ship out to the planet of Gliese 667 CC. It was never heard of again. Now after receiving a faint distress signal, another Guild Step-Ship investigates the lost colony, and itself goes missing. This triggers the Guilds Special Circumstances Department’s involvement and a team including the characters are assembled to find out what happened.

Format US Letter (8.5″ x 11″) softcover, with full-colour cover and internal illustration by Peter Frain.

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.
