The Age of Blood and Gold



Take What You Want And Give Nothing Back!

The oceans become battlefields when pirates make war on the world.  Discover the horror and mystery of the Brethren Coasts in this explosive Forged in the Dark roleplaying game. Track and raid pirate ships on the high seas. Fight to free your people from colonial empires.  Join the Inquisition in their Shadow War, or sell your soul for magical power.  Now is the time to rise and raid!

The Age of Blood and Gold uses a modified version of the Forged in the Dark system to add structure to the resolution mechanics while keeping the action fast and simple.  Almost every challenge can be resolved in a single roll of the dice.  If you liked Blades in the Dark or 7th Sea but thought the mechanics lacked rigor, this is the game for you.

The 135 page PDF book includes: 

  • Over 40 pages of pirate lore.
  • Complete rules for character creation and gameplay.
  • Advice for building RPG stories.
  • New and historical NPCs and adversaries.
  • Gorgeous and compelling art.

Looks like AI plagiarism — the left hand of the Colonial soldier toward the end of the sample has two thumbs, one on either side of the hand. Also, tell tale early AI hallucinations like the headboard of the couple’s cabin. Could crowdfund this and fund real art by real people.

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.
