The Old World is gone, lost after an age of raging Chaos that laid the ancient civilizations low and changed the very surface of the planet. Now, a new world exists among the ruins of the old, a perilous world of monsters, mutants and magic, where the remnants of humanity and their allies fight for a new world in the midst of a savage land.

Welcome to Perilous!

Perilous is a game of fantastic adventure in a post-apocalyptic world of monsters, mutants and magic. In Perilous, you can take on the role of a character, an inhabitant of the Perilous Realms. As a player, you’ll create your character by selecting the character’s race and traits, determine their training and previous experience by choosing from dozens of skills and multiple realms of magic and get equipped from lists of arms, armor and general gear. Then step into a world of adventure!

Explore monster-haunted ruins and subterranean realms, search for lost wealth, magic and ancient technological artifacts, discover great wonders, encounter unimaginable horrors, fight for survival and battle for the future! All this and more await you within the Perilous Realms!

Or become the Hazard Master and control the monsters and dangers the characters will face. You’ll choose the adventure, determine the hazards, and select the actions that every monster takes.

 

Highlights include:

Characters

  • Create the character you want to play. No rolling and re-rolling. No clunky point systems. No spending hours creating a single character. Create a complete character in fifteen minutes or less.
  • Choose from nine traits, dozens of skills and multiple realms of magic.

Equipment

  • Equipment with mechanics. You’ll do more than just clutter your character sheet with all the stuff your character totes about. Whenever you use your gear, you’ll have the mechanics to make a real difference in the game.
  • Weapons with stats. More than just a damage die. Every weapons has its own set of stats that’ll give it its own role in combat.

Magic

  • A few have the ability to work magic, most do not. You’ll decide if your character has the power.
  • No memorization. No magic points. Magic is powerful, but has a price.

Action

  • Choose how much effort the character makes and take exactly the actions you want to take.
  • One rule to roll them all. Effort, action, reaction and saves, all come together in a simple, four-step, action resolution system that is used for all actions. If you can resolve one action, you can resolve them all.

Adventure

  • Fast setup and easy to play. No pages of lengthy background and descriptions. One glance at the map will tell you everything you need to know.
  • Highly reusable. Every adventure includes material you can reuse in future adventures and use to create adventures of your own.

Experience

  • Characters learn from their deeds. With every success comes experience.
  • Unlimited character development. Continue to create the character you want to play by developing the character how you choose.

Experience a game like no other. Enter the world of Perilous and enter new realms of adventure.

This is a charming little ruleset of fairly generic application, a basic 'swords and sorcery' concept presented as being a post-apocalyptic world with fantasy overtones. The rulebook is presented in a logical sequence, starting with character generatio [...]

Format
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.
