This is a WOIN Core Rulebook. It does not include character creation or equipment, which are found in other WOIN books.

This manual contains the core rules of the What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. roleplaying game system, designed for a futuristic campaign.

While other books tell you how to create a character or build a universe, this book tells you how to play the game. With rules for attribute checks, countdowns, luck, combat, injury & death, objects, and the environment, inside you'll find all the rules you need to adjudicate any task your characters might attempt.

This book is fully compatible with all W.O.I.N. supplements, and is a What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. core rulebook.

Before you purchase this product, please note that this product is included in the "N.E.W. The Science Fiction Roleplaying Game v1.2" offer from EN Publishing (dated November 20, 2017). Future Careers, Future Equipment, Future Core, Space, and Building a Universe are all included in full in that more recent product.

Hi Morris,

Will these core books be updated alongside the new (hehe) N.E.W. book or do I need to buy that to get the updates?

Any chance that we'll see a scifi bundle at some point?

how many random tables does WOIN Future Core contain?

Not many. A handful of technobabble random tables (engineering, medicine, computers/hacking) for use in play. If random tables are your thing, hold out for [WOIN] Building A Universe which is crammed with random tables for creating star systems and planets and races and civilisations and all sorts of stuff!

Incidentally, [WOIN] Building A Universe came out a couple of weeks ago, and is crammed full of random tables!

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.
