Hidden Worlds Refined Core

Selected Option:

Hunt Monsters. Save Humanity. Survive?

Hidden Worlds Refined Core is a table-top roleplaying game set in the near future urban fantasy World of Incursion. The game runs on the HW20 Core System, which uses a single d20 for fast, deadly combat mechanics and a completely open magic system that is called “Faith.” 

The Hidden Worlds Refined Core is a complete system overhaul of the original acclaimed release, Hidden Worlds: Incursion. This new version makes the combat system even smoother, makes the faith mechanics even easier to play, and enhances character creation. Hidden Worlds Refined Core is the definitive core manual for the HW20 Core System, and brought to you by Bryan Donihue, the One-Legged GM. 

No Classes. No Levels. No Limits. Welcome to the Hidden Worlds.

Thank you for asking!

POD is coming ASAP. Both Softcover ($27) and Hardcover ($42).

Working with the folks at DriveThru to figure out some technical stuff in the printing file. I hope to have the POD files up in the next week or so (it's a longer process on the back end).

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.
