    The download link actually loaded the PDF into my browser, which took forever. So it seems you should right-click and do a "Save Target As".

    Anyway, thanks to @Stacie GmrGrl for bringing this up. After skimming it, it looks like an interesting blend of various fantasy games.

After high-school I got away from it for many years, but this year I started up again with some buddies from work. I've been playing C&C, pathfinder, 4e, and d20 future.

    Lately, I've just started getting into Radiance with my gaming group and everyone seems to really enjoy it. Our GM has been looking for a decent d20-style steampunk game for years, until I turned him onto this game. The information and art in the book is top notch, the price of materials is excellent (already ordered a PHB). Personally, I think it's brilliant marketing to release free PDF's. Most gamers I know these days would rather "try-before-buy" so, I do appreciate their strategy.

    Looking forward to checking out the Master's Guide and other expansions when they are released!
    Thanks for sharing your experience, Robyo.
    I too started in the early 80s (30 years ago this past summer). I still remember the whole adventure of first time I played. Never imagined such a thing as an RPG existed! And like you, I took a break, for me from 17-25. Too much else going on then.

    We're still working on the Master's Guide. There are a few pages left free. If you all have anything you'd love to see.... Someone has asked, for example, for a 2-page GM cheat sheet that fills the same role as a GM's screen.

    You're welcome. I did this as a philanthropic project of sorts. And these days, with our attention in ten directions at once, "Free" still has a certain allure. :-)

    In the meantime, I will be checking out 13th Age.
    Oh gosh.
    You all can download it at:

    Radiance Players Guide: A Complete Roleplaying Game in the Age of Electrotech - Radiance House | DriveThruRPG.com

    I considered zip files, and then I worried some folks are unsure what to with those, even in 2012. Solution: 2 download options! I'll work on that. Thank you for reporting this obstacle.

    That is amazing. Where did you get the art? It's very nice, far far more than I would have expected from a philanthropic project.

    Consider me a convert, and a proselytizer. For what it's worth. I'll mention it to my game group, anyway.

    I run a publishing company for books and such unrelated to RPGs. That resource and experience really helped do something fun like this. Like any serious RPG outfit, I solicited the magic of professional game artists like Joe Slucher, Eric Lofgren, Chris Pritchard, and Frank Walls. I and a friend of mine who is a video/animation creative director did the interior and cover design. And so forth.

    Yay, for converts to Baal. I mean Dagon. I mean Radiance.

    Well it's a pretty little book, and it's packed with ideas. I'm still reading through it. Yay for reading material!

    I like that if I make a Warmech + Shifter class equals Beast Wars Transformer.

    It would be cool if the Shifter class could be expanded for more different animal forms... I could totally run a Beast Wars campaign that way using Radiance.
