Designed as a lightweight alternative to the Match System, the Equinox Storygame Guide lets you create exciting stories about powerful mystics in a war-ravaged dark future with a minimum of fuss and preparation.
Based on the FU game engine by Nathan Russell, we’ve tried to capture the essentials of the equinox experience. We reconfigured, adapted, and expanded the FU ruleset to provide you with a simple, story-oriented game system suitable for conventions, short campaigns, and games that need to be run on-the-fly.
Beyond the Equinox Setting Guide, this book contains everything you need to play!
Welcome to equinox, a future fantasy game of stunning action, frightening intrigue, and mystical powers! In this game, you ride hybrid ships through the astral space connecting planets and galaxies and wield awesome mystic powers and nethertech artifacts! Take on the role of a restless wanderer—someone living on the fringes of galactic society, scraping by in a war-torn universe, maybe even stealing other people‘s stuff. Whether a misfit, scoundrel, mercenary, pirate, idealist, explorer, or just someone who walked away from his home in search of adventure: you are part of the galactic underground. Fight the nightmares that invaded the universe, start a revolution against the fascistic and corrupt Consortium government, and explore space beyond the Veil...
The rules in this book are tailored to the Equinox Universe, as described in the Equinox Setting Guide. The Match System is designed for larger-than-life characters with special and extremely powerful abilities. It supports casual players and provides all the tools needed for extended campaigns in a war-ravaged dark future. The Equinox Setting Guide is required to use this book.
Please note the Match System Guide PDF is released early and at a healthy discount: the Setting Guide has been available for quite some time, and with the text being the most important part of this book, those who want to start adventuring in the Equinox Universe can now do so right away! The PDF will be updated while art is being finalized, giving you the chance to follow the art design from sketch to final (expected in Q2/2015).
