Tiny, Versatile Role Playing System

Watermarked PDF

When you get down to it, every roleplaying game system is composed of three things, a set of rules, a list of skills and abilities, and a fancy way to roll dice.  (Well, except for story games.)  The thing is, you already know what all the skills and abilities are, and you're going to ignore most of the rules anyway.  It's with that in mind that the Tiny, Versatile Role Playing System was invented.

It's a roleplaying game system stripped down to its bare essentials.  Skills are broken down into broad classes, so there's no dispute between the GM and the rulebook as to what a skill actually does.  Combat can be exactly as lethal as you want it to be.  And since the entire set of rules fits on the front and back of a single sheet of paper, it's easy for new players to learn.

(Also, be sure to check out the first expansion:  TVRPS Superheroes!)

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.
