Spirits are inhuman, alien creatures. Even those mirroring human concepts and emotions take those ideals to hyper focused extremes, turning something like love into a horrid obsession at the expense of everything else, or charity into a suicidal martyrdom. Few of these ephemeral beings can think in human terms, or plan things out in the long term to temper the hunger for those concepts they reflect.

Some, however, grow a bit closer to humanity than is normal. These are familials, spirits who have grown particularly complex through their connection to humanity (or human-like supernatural creatures).

Familials provides rules for playing these spirits, allowing for players to take control of spirit characters, whether for a Chronicle focused around a choir of spirits alone, or a mixed group of spirits, shapeshifters, magic users, or otherwise.

Hello! I hope you don't mind the comment, but I recently had someone reach out to me to ask if I could make a character sheet for use with this book and I wanted to reach out to ask if that would be ok with you?

Thank you in advance (either way)!

Oh absolutely, be my guest! I'd even be happy to integrate it into the back of book and give you some credit for it if you're both amenable to that.

Oh cool! Thank you so much, that'd be awesome! If you get the time, send me an email ( mrgonejediknight (@) gmail ) and I can send you the sheet when it's finished.

Oh! And I'll include it on my site with a link back here to the book.

Thanks again!

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.
