Wyrd System & Setting (Free version)

Wyrd System & Setting (Free version)

Watermarked PDF

The free Wyrd Lite version of the Wyrd RPG, featuring the Elderune multi-dice roleplaying system.

Before time, there was only the Nüsphere - the whole and the all - and Gungin, the spirit of Chaos. There were no elements and life was yet unknown. In this agelessness the cosmos dreamed; a long vision becoming a nightmare weaving toward doom. The cosmos awoke to behold the face of Yneur flaring in shadow, kindling as flame.

Culminating six years of production, Wyrd is the end result of a project to create an immersive multi-genre roleplaying experience with an old-school feel suitable for gamers with experience and with an interest in playing outside their comfort zone. Featuring elements of sword and sorcery mixed with steampunk and horror of the Lovecraftian tone, Wyrd draws on the druidic essence of the British myths to present an immensely detailed and hugely immersive setting combined with an original gameplay system designed to get the most out of your dice bag!

Download this free PDF version which contains everything you need to get a basic game going. The full version is also available to buy on Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now along with other books in the core series.

NOTE: This is a SAMPLE file and some items have been omitted. Certain creeds, races, advanced combat methods and most of the reference section has been converted to random Greek text. These items are not essential to the running of a Wyrd game but where you feel you would like to include them they can be found in full in the complete version of System & Setting, available here. The restricted aspects of this free version are, we hope, fairly done in order to give the buyer a good idea of the game and an opportunity to run a basic game before they invest in the full version.

Note 2: to address issues some gamers have had using the smaller font-size character sheets supplied with this title we've created some new larger text, cleaner design character sheets which you can get here for free.

Hi, I have downloaded this product, very interesting by the way. Nevertheless, some full passages are written in latin, which I must admit I cannot read. Is it possible to get a corrected version of this document, i.e. all in english?

This is the free version, designed to give you a very good idea of how the game works but some parts have been redacted. The use of Latin text (called Greeking) is merely used to blank out parts of the book which are only available in the full priced version. Even if you could read Latin it wouldn't make much sense because the text is random :-)

Nevertheless, the game can be played with just the free version as the redacted parts are not crucial to the game. These mostly include certain battle combos, special character creeds and some reference information. There's much more in the full priced version which you can get here

Sorry I didn't notice your message until now. Hopefully this will help.

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.
