The Secret World

Selected Option:

An age is ending, and the darkest days are already here. Ancient enemies cast their avaricious gaze upon our world, threats both mortal and cosmic–once thought merely myth, but horrifically all too real–reveal themselves as the clock counts down towards apocalypse. Now, the “Bees,” the Chosen of Gaia, must step forth to defend the Earth against these dire threats. At the same time, they must work with secret societies who support the bees in their efforts to save humanity from unspeakable horrors.

In The Secret World: The Roleplaying Game, the players are those bees. The Secret World role-playing game is an adaptation and continuation of Funcom’s iconic MMORPG. This game uses the D&D 5e ruleset.

Inside this book, you will find rules for creating bees, running the game, and more:

  • Rules for working with the secret societies: the Dragon, the Templars, and the Illuminati

  • Rules for the unique ability of bees to escape what would normally be a final death

  • An expansive look at the setting of the Secret World, the important movers and shakers, and the threats who lurk in the shadows.

  • Gamemaster advice on how to use the conspiracies of the real world to build adventures for The Secret World.

The Secret World awaits… do you have the courage to face its dangers?

Is there a character sheet for the game? The best thing would be a character sheet that you can fill out on the computer.

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.
