Gaia Awakening – The Beckoning is an expansion intended to provide advanced techniques for Characters and NPCs.

The Beckoning calls to all who listen. The Unreach contains secrets that the Greater Souls are all too keen to reveal. Anything for a glimpse into the Corporeal Realm, which they jealously eye from the vast Unreach Planes under their control. A bargain or a gamble. The Beckoning calls.


The Beckoning is a calling, a sense of longing that permeates humanity. It has always existed, and just like Universal Energy the Beckoning ebbs and flows. Sometimes the people of Gaia are collectively more susceptible to the Beckoning, and for a short time hell is allowed to break loose. Sometimes it is the individual that walks through the door. Sometimes they are hounded. Ultimately the Beckoning is a choice. Most of humanity, including Magic-Users, are unaware of the forces who seek to exploit their longing.

 Running parallel to, but separate from, the Corporeal Realm of Gaia and the stars is an infinite plane of malevolence. The Unreach. Every Culture in the Universe has a vision of what the Unreach is, what it means. However one depicts an afterlife of eternal struggle, they are absolutely correct. The denizens of the Unreach, in particular it’s Greater Souls, shape their Circles – the realms they control – to provide trials, torments, and upset for the souls they capture. There is no rhyme or reason for the soul of a sentient being to be snatched to the Unreach. This is done when someone’s life force is on the precipice of being extinguished. Greater Souls of the Unreach are above all opportunists. There are no codes of conduct or systems of belief in and of themselves which guarantee protection from the Unreach, though a spirit which is strong in faith stands a better chance of resisting it. The Beckoning is one of many gateways to the Unreach. When a person embraces the Beckoning they invite a Greater Soul to peer through their eyes into the Corporeal Realm, and in exchange they are rewarded with powerful abilities. How these abilities are used is entirely up to the practitioner. Greater Souls watch through the eyes of the hosts for countless years. They are permanently on the lookout for ways to influence or even break into the Corporeal Realm. So too do they wait for the day their host becomes hungry for more power of their own. This request is often granted with a specific price, or at the expense of a sacrificed soul.

Product Information
File Size:
2.62 MB
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.
