Something is Waking on Evera Prime

Dreams and Machines is a brand new tabletop roleplaying game where people come together to rebuild their world following a catastrophic war. The Dreams and Machines Gamemaster’s Guide PDF gives you the rules and tools to immerse yourself and your players into the history and setting of Evera Prime. Challenge your players with mutants and mechs alike, while traveling the beautiful but dangerous landscape of this colony world.

A unique blend of fantasy and science fiction, reveal the history of Evera Prime as your players explore abandoned research facilities, ruined mega-cities, and beautiful but overgrown resorts, and reward them with fragments of knowledge to wake them from the specter of The Builder.

As humanity rebuilds and communities begin to thrive, the threat of the Dark City, the Thralls, and the Builder AI loom on the horizon. Wakers, trapped for centuries in a mechanical nightmare, spring to life and continue their murderous rampage with the fragments of programming they have left.

Dreams and Machines collide in a far future where its people come together to rebuild their world. The ultimate tale of hope and heroism in the shadow of the Wakers.

The Dreams and Machines Gamemaster’s Guide PDF contains:

  • 227 pages packed with full color art bringing the world to life. A detailed guide to the history and secrets of Evera Prima, a map and guide to the region around New Mossgrove, information on the wider continent of Nedresita
  • Everything you need to lead your players in creating memorable stories in the world of Evera Prime, including a deep dive into the playable factions and peoples of Evera Prime, providing much more insight into their stories, backgrounds, and ways of life.

I really really like the base gameolay. I completely despise the scrapbook theme and margin comments from the pre teen "protagonist" they've saddled us with for these books and starter set. It realy makes this product line look like babys first rpg and not a game worth playing. Yes, accessibility is good, making the game look like a kindergarten art project, not so good (and atleast 3 of the setting pov iconic npc types in the works are 10-12 yr old children, completely removing sensible impressions here)

I am mostly enjoying this new addition to the 2d20 System catalog, but come on guys, you need to invest more into your proofreading staff. The typos are all over the place, and a great number of the page references both within the book and to the Player Guide are off by anywhere from 2 to 4 pages. While I accept that the typo-laden Conan books will never get the corrections the customers deserve, I hope you devote some time to actually updating this with corrected files.

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.
