Each character of this dramatic tabletop role-playing game about magic and its consequences finds themselves in a difficult life situation when all personal illusions are crumbling. Now they are ready to go as far as possible. Because magic is might?

In the book you will find:

  • Rules that use mechanics familiar from PbtA/Fate games, focused on creating a story together.
  • 10 archetypes with their own psychological characteristics, advantages and starting problems.
  • Information about the alternative world and the peoples.
  • Rules for the Radiance: ready-made examples of magical knowledge and benefactors, a magic system constructor, initiation rituals, as well as hints for finding secret knowledge.
  • Hints for creating and resolving physical and social conflicts.
  • Illustrative materials: a world map by Svetlana Chib; ironic illustrations by Evgeny Korolkov with a girl and a black cat, the main mascots of the game; noir photographs by Egor Dodonov with Anastasia Korchagina.
  • Inserts by Anastasia Kurganskaya, revealing the psychology of the archetypes.

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.
