Macchiato Monsters ZERO


This is not a game about coffee

Macchiato Monsters is a rules-light, old school, slightly collaborative roleplaying game. I designed it for adventure, exploration and survival in all kinds of perilous dungeonverses. If that were legally safe, I might have called it Dangers & Decisions. You can also say it’s an OSR and DIY D&D game, if labels are that important to you. Key features:

  • Classless characters: emulate a classic concept or come up with something unique
  • Freeform magic: name your spells and pay hit points when you cast them
  • One-roll combat rounds: no initiative, no maps, no quarter given
  • Risk dice: a simple attrition mechanic for armour, gear, encounters, treasure, etc.

More details in an interview with Di6dent’s Le Fix (French) and on the author's site

Character sheets and cover painting-with-actual-coffee by Guillaume Jentey, editing by Slade Stolar, publishing by Paolo Greco's Lost Pages.

Please note that this is the Zero Edition; the full version will be published some time in 2017. The PDF will be updated with corrections, rules, and an extra 20+ pages of campaign tools (there is a link to a work in progress document in the book).

Since this is the "Zero edition" and the full edition has not been released yet (or did I miss it?), is it worth buying it?
Essentially, if I buy the Zero edition, will I get access to the full game once it is released?

This version is updated for free as the game gets updated. So, you won't miss out anything :)

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.
