YARR! is a fun, easy to learn game for kids, beginners or veteran players who emphasize story and role play over rules. YARR! is intuitive for anyone who has played any OGL / d20 game. It is streamlined so that kids can grasp it easily but robust enough (and including advanced rules for skills) so that veteran player won't find it overly simplified.

Yarr! includes rules for ship to ship combat, a bestiary of human and monstrous adversaries, booty (treasure) appropriate for historical fantasy of the Golden Age of Piracy, Mermaid magic, even a Pirate Talk glossary!

Your ragtag crew of pirates have just used a magic compass to find an island where the treasure was hidden in a lost ruin. Finding it booby trapped and containing one monkey's paw too many, you made your escape, scuffling with a voodoo witch doctor and [...]

'Rules Light' doesn't mean that they have neglected the rules, just that they are streamlined and unobtrusive, unlikely to get in the way of best-quality pirate role-playing action! You get everything that you will need to unleash a band of pira [...]

After one read thru I am very happy with this game, and it is a complete role playing game, i was not left with that feeling of incompleteness that I usually get from games claiming to be rules lite. I love pirates and have been hooked on them for over [...]

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.
