Demon Gate: Core Rulebook

    An apocalyptic dark fantasy tabletop roleplaying game set within a feudal, medieval era. You are a survivor, an adventurer fighting for your soul in a world filled with darkness and monsters. Delve into the ancient ruins of races long dead and otherworldy beings lost to the teeth of time. The black towers of the Void Gods hold untold treasures and mystic artifacts that wield esoteric technology, or what we call "magic".

    The world Koth has suffered through the Apocalyptic Prophecies with the final tragedy yet to be fulfilled. The legends say that the world was once infested by demons and for eons they have been imprisoned. Now stories are spreading around the campfires of the dead rising from their graves and the very darkness of the Veil Myst coming to drag souls to the Black Plane. If this is true, the Demon Gate has opened, and it will take more than just heroes to stop it.

     Demon Gate uses the Chaos System for its mechanics. This system uses a resisted D20 for combat. You must roll to attack and defend. The skills and attributes part of the system uses a dice ladder mechanic d6 to d8, d10 to d12, d8+d6 to 2d8, etc. Increasing skills and attributes will grant you a greater dice pool to utilize in order to reach target numbers or resisted rolls. 

The core rulebook is 454 pages of a highly detailed world known as Koth! A planet where all races were once enslaved by the demon lords. Come and join the struggle to shatter the gate.

I just bought Demon Gate yesterday and in attempting to put a character together ran into an issue. I have no idea how to find the information for skills such as rating, skill level, or dice. Page 168 of the .pdf says there should be a table on the following page, but it's not there. Am I missing something?

Hi Scooter, I am looking on page 168 of the PDF (the page number written in the book actually) I see it says a link at the end of the page to see Pg 44 if you click that (the PDF is filled with hyperlinks so if shows a page number to refer to you may click on it). It then takes you to the dice table. Each skill is tied to an attribute so if you are looking at Stealth rating 1, stealth ties to your Dexterity Attribute. Add your attribute rank to the rating of the skill to get a skill level (jot your skill level down in the space on your sheet then refer to the dice table under skill level) it will tell you what dice you roll for the skill. If you do not have the skill stealth and are attempting to sneak you would simply roll the dice for your dexterity. Sorry if it is confusing at all or difficult to find. If you need any other assistance please let me know I will be happy to help.

Also I am supplying you with a link to a video tutorial on building a character sheet from scratch. There is a quick table for the dice table on the back of the character sheet as well for convenience. The link should take you right to setting up your attributes and skill ratings, levels, etc. https://youtu.be/WVOBGZ4K5cs?t=1965 it is at about 33 minutes in.

Oh and I found what you are talking about under Improving Character Skills. That is confusing and should be altered or added to. I will make a note of it to alter for our next revision.

Thanks for the quick reply! I did find the table and got most of the system figured out... Still a lot to read. Have to say, I love the system, the races, classes, even the brutality, though it means I am going do die... A lot... Also, any chance of getting an image of the world map?

Thanks Scooter, yes it is very easy to get killed so be sure to take it slow and be very cautious. In the beginning it is a lot about survival and gathering tools to craft to survive. We will try and put a map up for DL on our website www.arcanumsyndicate.com under the Demon Gate page so people can use them in their VTTs.

Lol. Thanks Jason I cannot wait for my book! Our first submission needed some specs adjusted to their standards, now all should be well. I was given the message today that they are in the premedia stage.

Looks interesting. The description says "Watch out for more versions of the core book..." What will be the difference between this version and future versions of the core book?

Hi Patrick, we are currently awaiting approval of the hardback and different versions of the print on demand options is all, didn't mean to be misleading on that. Thanks for the comment and good gaming to you.

Any description regarding the system?

Hi Alexandre, yes it should be updated with a brief description under the book listing and a more in depth overlook of the mechanics when you follow the link to the site. Thank you very much for your comment!

Format
Original electronic
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.
