Princes of the Universe - An RPG in the Highlander Setting


Princes of the Universe

"I am Duncan MacLeod, born 400 years ago in the highlands of Scotland. I am Immortal, and I am not alone. For centuries we have waited for the time of the Gathering, when the stroke of a sword and the fall of a head will release the power of the Quickening. In the end, there can be only one."

These lines in 1995 kicked off one of the greatest urban fantasy settings on syndicated television; Highlander: the Series.  This Role-playing Game gives you the chance to create and playing immortal and mortal characters in this setting.  You can harness the power of the Quickening and use it tell the stories of your own characters all while being guided in your adventures by The Watcher. 

This is a rules-lite system where The Watcher rolls no dice.  Only the players roll dice, using pools of d12 that they create by utilizing Quickening.  The Watcher and the players harness the power of the Quickening to help overcome or add complications as the game progresses.  In addition, the attribute, value, ties, drives, and burdens system allows for players to create well-rounded characters quickly.  The rules are perfect for One-shots, Episodic campaigns, and short seasonal campaigns. 

The rules include character sheets and a quick reference guide for easy play.

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.
