Adventure! d20

Suggested Price $9.99

The d20 System Game of Pulp Action!

A new era begins in the 1920s - an era of imagination, of globe-trotting exploration and mad science. An era in which excitement awaits everywhere from the lofty skyscraper penthouses of New York City, to the sweltering jungles of the Congo. It is an era of Adventure!

Heed the Call to Adventure!

Requires the use of the Dungeons and Dragons Player's Handbook, published by Wizards of the Coast. This product utilizes updated material from the v.3.5 revision.

In this pulp action campaign setting, you take on the role of an Inspired hero battling dastardly villains and bizarre monsters. Adventure! has rules for playing any kind of pulp hero you can think of, along with rich source material, new core and prestige classes, new feats and powers, systems for building amazing inventions and more!

Contains original fiction by acclaimed comic author Warren Ellis (The Authority, Planetary, Transmetropolitan).

Part One of the Trinity Universe game trilogy.

In this book, you play one of the Inspired, a hero capable of larger-than-life deeds and feats of amazing skill. The Inspired include daredevils, people blessed with extraordinary skill or luck; stalwarts, adventurers with physical abilities beyond the capabilites of their peers (and the precursors to Aberrant's novas); and mesmerists, those individuals who can employ the mysteries of the mind (and earlier incarnations of Trinity's psions).

Hidden Lore

Releases: Released in May, 2004. Although Adventure! was the final book in the original Storyteller run, it was the first book in the d20 System release, as the d20 books were released in chronological order. This makes Adventure! d20 the first book to be released in the world's two most popular systems.

Aside from system changes, no notable alterations were made to the setting, the only Trinity Universe translation to remain unchanged.

This is also the first time the term "Trinity Universe" was formalized, along with getting its own logo -- the closest previous books came to a term for the larger setting was Adventure!'s use of "Æon Continuum," which only occurred once or twice within the text.

The Cover: The cover bears the appearance of a dime-store pulp novel. The Mark Chiarello illustration depicts an adventurer resembling Howard Hughes -- perhaps Max Mercer himself -- with sleeves rolled up, climbing over human skeletons and giant worms (or tentacles) as he descends into a stone chamber in some forgotten ruins of the ancient world.

Art: The art is wonderfully evocative of the pulp genre, including frequent small text captions, as was common in the original literature. Many uncredited White Wolf staffers portrayed characters in photographs, including Ken Cliffe as Max Mercer, Rich Thomas as Safari Jack Tallon, Tim Avers as Hammon "Baron Halcyon" Banes, Becky Jollensten as Dr. Hephaestia "The Machinatrix" Geary-Wexler, Ed Hall as Jackson "Mister Saturday" Harley, Bruce Baugh as "The Czar" Ivan Boris Vladimir Staynskaya, and Aaron Voss as the Ubiquitous Dragon.

New Edition

Cover for Trinity Continuum: Adventure!Onyx Path has released a new edition of the Adventure! game line: Trinity Continuum: Adventure!.

The new edition uses Onyx Path's Storypath System for its mechanics.

The setting has been updated and expanded, introducing setting elements never before seen in first edition material.

Is the "d20 Modern" core rulebook close enough to use for this d20 edition of Adventure!, or does one really need the 3.5E Player's Handbook?

Any chance of this title being offered as a POD?

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.
