Vortex: Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Anything Is Possible! The cosmos is but an infinitesimal mote floating in an endless sea of alternate spheres of existence where improbabilities do not exist. It is the Infinite Continua.

Vortex is a customizable miniature skirmish game that can be used with any miniature in any setting, using the miniatures and terrain you already own! The Vortex: Core Rulebook contains rules for building Combatants, over 270 Abilities, Liabilities, Weapon Features and Flaws, dozens of pre-constructed Combatants, an amazing array of Scenarios, and a complete easy-to-play Campaign System that allows your miniatures to gain experience and grow as characters. Vortex is also perfectly suitable for single games and tournament events. Players are free to write any sort of back-story for their Combatants and Companies. You can play with historical accuracy or pure flights of fancy. You can create your own universes or play using existing literary or cinematic fare.

The story of Vortex is every story.

I have played this rule set for skirmish minatures games for the last 3 years and I love it. It's replaced all other skirmish rule sets for me. Detailed but easy to understand rules for battling and creation of your team of minis. ( does vehicles too ) I guess the thing I like the most is one system, but we change the genres add a few extra house rules to make things different in each campaign.

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.
