We’re closing out Of Swords and Lasers Week with this intriguing setting that directly pits swords against lasers. Amethyst: Quintessence is a world where players choose the path of science and technology or the chaos and wonder of fantasy. This is the 5th Edition version, but there’s also Amethyst material for 4e, Pathfinder, Fate, 13th Age, and more.
Which side will you choose? Which weapons will you wield? Earth is torn between the order of science and the chaos of fantasy. These two worlds cannot mix. Venture into lands once claimed by skyscrapers and factories, now overrun by elves, goblins, and dragons. Choose your path and commit to the quest. Monsters will hunt you; machines will track you. No gods will help you; no prophecies will choose you. The fate of the world rests with you.
This rulebook includes…
–A new adaptation of Amethyst based on the 5th edition (5E) of the first fantasy roleplaying game, the defining RPG of the last, current, and most likely next generation.
–New technology-based rules including vehicle combat and firearms compatible with any 5E game.
–Eleven new races and over thirty new backgrounds.
–Eight new classes based around technology. Over thirty new archetypes.
–High Tech Equipment from revolves to railcannons. Powered armor. Both ground vehicles and aircraft.
–Over thirty new monsters.
