Serpents' Teeth

Softcover, B&W Book
Softcover, B&W Book + PDF

This is a supplement for Jaws of the Six Serpents, our popular gamebook taking the PDQ system into the realms of sword-and-sorcery and the darker sides of fantasy. Because PDQ is so simple and flexible, it lets you lay out what's important about characters and get playing very quickly.

Serpents' Teeth is a resource for the GM, with adventures and guidance material, mostly by fans of Jaws who have run it in their home groups and at conventions. You can also use it with other sword and sorcery games: character write-ups are so simple that you can easily convert to your system of choice.

Here's what's inside:

  • Ties to Bind - an adventure outline by Brenda Hingstman
  • Gods of the World of the Six Serpents - a setting option by Rachael Hodson
  • The Scroll of Misnai - an adventure outline by Rachael Hodson
  • The Curse of Karak-Azim - an adventure setting by Scott Dorward
  • The Taming of Khend - an adventure setting by Storn Cook
  • Red Sands of the Six Serpents - a genre guide for sword and planet by James Maliszewski and Tim Gray
  • Breaking the Jaws of the Six Serpents Cult - a genre guide for pulp action by Tim Gray

Note: some of the material is not suitable for a pre-teen audience.

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.
