The PDF that I've purchased of this product is not working. Every time I try to load it up I am getting an error. The Preview file works fine (though I'm not sure why that was included) but the actual DIGITAL_MajiMonsters_Core_Rulebook_9-19-16.pdf must be broken.

Hi there!

Sorry to hear your copy is not working. We've checked the file and can confirm that it is indeed working on our end. We suspect it might be an issue on your end, especially since we haven't heard from any other owners about a problem with it. Try the following:

1) Download the latest copy of Adobe Acrobat / PDF Viewer and see if that will work (the files should be compatible with most versions, however)
2) Check to see if the file did not download completely from DriveThruRPG. This would cause the file to have an error when opening. You can always download the file again from your account Library.

To answer your question about the preview file, it has to be included with the downloadables to allow us to display the custom preview you see on this product page. You can simply discard it after you download it. :)

Good luck! Please let us know if you continue to have issues.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Acrobat / PDF Viewer and it is still not working. The program is opening up other PDFs, but whenever I try to open up the MajiMonsters book it is giving me an error saying: "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

I have downloaded the PDF multiple times from my library, cleared my cache, deleted and redownloaded, restarted my computer, redownloaded Adobe, etc. Nothing is working.

It may be working on your end, but it's certainly not working for me :(

Please refund this order or provide a non-corrupt file.

Yikes! That is no good to hear. We can't control refunds, but we can try to get you a copy of the PDF through a different method. If you wouldn't mind, please email us at:

majimonsters@gmail.com

Please include your name and order number. We'll set up an independent download of the file for you, and hopefully that will work.

A question that came up during our group's character creation - what check is made during the breeding process? It says 'a hard (9) check', but doesn't specify what dice the Scholar player would be rolling. Is it just 2d6, and if so, does that mean it isn't possible in the game mechanics to become 'better' or 'more consistently successful' at MajiMonster breeding (beyond using higher-Grade Majimon)?

Hi Eleanor; glad to see you're having fun breeding MajiMonsters (one of my favorite parts of the game). You're correct, anytime a check isn't specified, it's a standard 2d6 with the listed difficulty.

We initially had the check tied to a skill and allowed MajiMonster breeding among all classes, but with the relatively small range of ability scores it was too easy to manipulate so that success was assured. We instead tied "improving" the odds with higher Grade Monsters and limited the ability to the scholar class. We found this worked the best - it was consistent without being assured, and gave the class a special quality that made it desirable on a team.

That said, we're firm believers that MajiMonsters is yours to make your own. If you want to house rule the check to a skill you can, of course, among any other homebrew rule you might come up with!

Thanks again!

Is there a plan to release a quickstart with premade characters? I would love to run a one-shot game with my gaming group before buying a nearly $30 pdf. Thanks!

Just a thought but, I can't help but notice you have rules for increasing the size of monsters but no actual explanation as to what size does mechanically? Should I just reference 5e D&D and extrapolate?
Customer avatar

PURCHASER
Hey Jonathan!

A Monster's size affects how much space it takes up on the battlefield (which, in turn, affects its capacity to make withdraw strikes and other tactical decisions). In addition to that, certain techniques and traits are based off a Monster's size or the size of its target / opponent.

You might want larger or smaller Monsters to capitalize on these techniques and traits, or you may want them for a purely aesthetic, role-playing angle.

Hey Matthew! We've recently finished proofing the hard cover copies! Expect them to be made available this week! We're adding an update to our Kickstarter page and will email all Drive Thru customers the moment it goes live. If you've already purchased the PDF you'll be sent a discounted link to upgrade to the hardcover + PDF combo.

Is there any plans to make a PDF file that works better with e-readers and has the Table of Content and Index linked to their respective pages? This PDF is slow to change pages and draw on my iPad, especially if I am trying to flip through it quickly to get to different sections. If I flip more than 3 pages I have to wait more than 5 seconds for the next page to load.

Thanks for your feedback, Kevin! It's currently working without issue when tested on our iPad, so we'll have to look into it. As far as linking pages from the contents and index, that's certainly something we can look into for a future update!

I have a question that the authors of this game could possibly help with. Would it be possible to get a digital template of some sort, such as a Word DOC / DOCX, Photoshop PSD / Illustrator AI / Editable PDF that we GMs could fill out for new MajiMonsters? I have an idea for one, with it written up in notepad of all things, and I would like something I can output to nice, stylised PDF for my players, so that if they start with or bind one of these monsters, they can see it at a glance.

This would be very appreciative, and I would think I am not the only GM to think of this.

Is there a way I can shoot you guys the idea for my MajiMonster? It's no way near finalised, but the general idea is a Kamaitachi.
I based it on a few different sources, and would like for it to be available for other people, as I went through the bestiary in the core rules, and didn't see one in there. I'm certain others would have different opinions on a MajiMonster based on real world folklore mixed with other sources, but that's why I want to share it.
I didn't know about the Kickstarter until July of this year, which was much too late for input, but I would like to share my creation with refinements from the developers of the system, if at all possible. I have the stats for it pretty much done, just gotta finalise its techniques and its art. I'm terrible at art, can't draw for peanuts, but I'm sure there would be a lot of inspiration out there for this monster. I would think you guys could have it drawn better than me.

Splendid! I just checked it out and im very excited about this. I have one concern and suggestion.

1-In the Combat Techniques their are drop down boxes covering some information, additionally the selection from the box are not visible.

2- One option i have seen on some other sheets to allow for more text is to make the fillable fields scroll much like a webpage as opposed to have the text get ever smaller as more info is added. This is typically a much nicer method that allows you to store much more info without having the text turn into type size 1 ;) This would likely be of particular use in areas such as combat techniques where one may want to right down the details of a technique in it entirety so they need to pull out the book.

All the same this will certainly work for now! I cant wait to run a game!

From what I noticed, that only happens in the background section of the pdf. I found it strange the lines weren't separate like the Class Feature section was.

While I am really interrested in the game, the price is too expensive for a PDF for my taste. Would have given it a try for 20$ but not more...sorry...

We understand Frank!

The price points for the PDF and hard copies are based off tiers from our Kickstarter campaign used to find the game. While there certainly will be sales in the future, the current prices will be the standard for the materials for a little while. Hang in there!

Out recommendation is to add the titles to your Wishlist. This ensures you'll be notified when a sale runs.

Thanks for your interest!

I want to get this for my table top after school program that I run at my middle school but being a poor teacher 27.00 for a pdf is pricey. I must wait for a sale. It looks great though.

That would be fantastic. I do most of my gaming online anymore so having the ability to make PreGens for others interested and myself is wonderful. Have you considered making a character sheet for the Roll20 App? I think that too would be a most glorious thing.

Something else that would be a nice inclusion I would love to see is a cheat sheet document with key info such as DC`s, Skill list, actions, weaknesses and strengths of majimonsters and so on.

Keep up the good work, looking forward to future products.

So there will be printed materials? Like I said above the game looks awesome and my students would love it. Especially my struggling learners but as it goes I have to buy most things myself for my classroom. So i don't want to buy it twice if there's going to be a hard copy. So this makes me very excited.

Format

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.
