Novus Novus is a brand new roleplaying game released in Jannuary of 2011 by Firehawk Games in an Open Beta format. As of April 11th, 2012, the Open Beta has ended and the final version of Novus has been released. We are selling multiple versions of the rules from our Online Store. The versions are as follows:

All 4 PDF Versions
contain the same identical content when it comes to the rules themselves..

Bare Bones Version
This version contains no artwork, no index, no bookmarks, and no internal hyperlinks at all. It is essentially a text only version. This version sells for $2. When bundled with the print version, the Bare Bones PDF is free.
Thrifty Version
This version contains artwork and an index, but it does not contain bookmarks or internal hyperlinks. This version sells for $5. When bundled with the Print Version, the price is only $2.50.
Deluxe Version
This one has it all. It has artwork, an index, bookmarks, and internal hyperlinks (the page numbers for the TOC, index, and references to other sections of the book are actual links to take you to the specified page). This version sells for $9. When bundled with the Print Version, the price is only $4.50.
DigestVersion
This one has it all. It has artwork, an index, bookmarks, and internal hyperlinks (the page numbers for the TOC, index, and references to other sections of the book are actual links to take you to the specified page). And it is specifically formatted for reading on 7" tablets! This version sells for $9.

Print Versions
Print Versions of Novus are available from the individual pages of the first three PDF versions (not available from the Digest version). The print versions are all identical and match the Thrifty/Deluxe version of the PDF in regards to the interior content. The print version of Novus sells for $24.99. Due to the way in which RPGNow/DriveThruRPG works, print versions are an option listed under the PDF version of a product, so we had to add it to each of the 3 PDF versions of Novus.
Print/PDF Bundle
In addition to being able to purchase the print version of Novus from each of the 3 PDF pages, you can also purchase the PDF bundled with the print version. For the Deluxe and Thrifty PDFs, half of the PDF's price is added to the cost of the print version when bundling them together. Bundling the Bare Bones PDF with the print version results in that PDF being free.
