FARSIGHT RPG - Chronicles of the Edge


The Chronicles of the Edge book contains the first official campaign setting for Farsight RPG, along with new game content for both players and GMs. The book also contains a series of ready-to-play scenarios and adventures that further delve into the setting, and a large bestiary that expands the range of NPCs and creatures already presented in the Corebook, adding even more fearsome and dangerous opponents.

The Chronicles of the Edge campaign setting is a huge space-opera detailing the history, places, people and nations of the so-called Known Space. Here’s a breaf presentation of what awaits you.

Centuries ago, the Collapse forced the Pentalliace, also known as the Union, to retreat to the Central Systems, forsaking large portions of the Orion Arm. Now, after an era of oblivion, the now called Outskirts are finally slowly re-flourishing under the influence of new nations.

The frontier regions along the Inner Edge of the Known Space are now dominated by the Nargor Empire, which ensures protection and order with its mighty military apparatus. From the most distal areas of the Central Edge come rumors about the mysterious Concordate, whose emissaries travel through the Outskirts to bring reason and help wherever they can. Finally, the inner Outskirts and border marches along the Outer Edge have seen the rise of three major players: the thriving merchant league known as the Arkead Cross, the monolithic nation of the Exarcate, and the Auric Confederation, a heterogeneous alliance of states that claims the title of heir to the ancient Union.

Now, at the turn of the seventh century since the birth of the Union and almost 400 years after its fall, the Known Space is shaken by tensions between the nations that govern it, while unsolved mysteries emerge from a remote past and unknown threats creep just beyond the Edge, where the knowledge of the Orion Arm civilizations fades into the vastness of uncharted space.

Farsight RPG is a tabletop role-playing game designed to bring science fiction to your table, adapting to any sci-fi setting and style: from the most epic and utopian space-opera to the grittier cyberpunk, techno-thriller or post-apocalyptic dystopia.

Okay so, do you need this and the Corebook, or does this include the corebook. Just need to know what I have to get because I very much like a good space RPG

Hello Cale,
This is an expansion and campaign setting book, so you'll need the Farsight Corebook to go with it.

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.
