What is This Book?

This is a Player's Handbook, a player-focused guide to creating player-characters to use in a fleshpunk campaign.  It contains 14 extensively-detailed character classes, each vibrant and alive with the flavor of a brand-new campaign setting and concept.

The Gauntlets & Gaslight Player's Handbook is an unprecedentedly ambitious take on a PHB: Complete rules supporting not one, but four complete rules systems.

Inside, you'll find complete rules specifically in the language of the following supported rules systems:

  • Pathfinder First Edition
  • 5E / Fifth Edition
  • P2E / Pathfinder Second Edition
  • OSR
You'll also find an innovative and flexible take on character advancement: Dynamic Class Abilities.  This makes the acquisition and enhancement of a given character's progression within a class more random, so there's even more variability for characters of the same class.
Best of all, there are also rules to take any traditional class and quick-and-easy adapt them to use Dynamic Class Abilities--invigorating everything from Fighters to Warlocks once again!
Inside, you 'll find the following classes, each with a dedicated 10-60 pages:
  • Strifetainted
  • Spellsong Sufferer
  • Runepriest
  • Scayle
  • Blighthunter
  • Abstinent
  • Herald of Return
  • Salvager
  • Scavenger
  • Tinkerer
  • Grafter
  • Fleshforger
  • Mechanist
  • The Forged
Each class has plenty of content, including mindset and worldview, common wargear, party role, as an NPC, during combat / social encounters, roleplaying suggestions, discussion of behavior while exploring, in downtime, common traits, and external perceptions.

Rules Normalization

You'll also find an extensive Appendix, which offers a complete, yet easy to use discussion on how various concepts translate amongst the supported rules systems.  Saving throws, for example, are handled differently, and in some cases, rules for a certain concept simply don't exist in other systems.

This book uses a common rules language for simplicity and ease of use, but makes it simple and accessible for even novice G/DMs to use the book with any of the supported rules systems.

What is Gauntlets & Gaslight?

Mad science meets steampunk, by way of Ravenloft.

Automata, constructs, fleshbots, zombies. Things that should not be, given life by experiments that should not have happened using a combination of energies that should not work.

Nothing in this land makes sense, and within all feels alien, to those from outside it. Everything that moves, and much that is dead and silent, evokes the very deepest and darkest parts of our fears.

Welcome to the fallen nation of Nycarrad. Welcome to the birthplace of technology, magic, and a combination that is unprecedented anywhere in the Realm.

Welcome to the world of fleshpunk.

Player's Handbook and Other Tomes

Walking horrors of mechanical and organic design now inhabit and dominate the former kingdom of Nycarrad in Aquilae, the campaign setting in which Infinium Game Studios’ adventures take place.

That said, there’s no reason you couldn’t take these concepts and drop them right into any campaign setting or homebrew.

The books of Gauntlets & Gaslight describe weapons, armor, items, machinery, tools, vehicles, monsters, characters, spells, classes, factions, and more that breathe new, exciting, macabre life into your fantasy RPG campaign.

Is this meant to go with your Aquilae setting or is Nycarad a standalone setting?

This is a must have for your pfrpg/PF2ed/5E/ and OSR needs. I am going to use the player options from this book for OSE after a little adjustment.

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.
