WHAT IS CAVEMASTER?
Cavemaster is the amazing tabletop role-playing game of stone-age adventure.  The core rulebook gives information on the authentic creatures that lived 10,000 years ago, such as Saber Tooths, Short-faced Bears, and Mammoths.  There's an optional "Spirit Magic" system if you want a bit of fantasy flavor.

It's played using small handfuls of pebbles instead of dice.  Because it's possible to do damage back when attacked, fights go quickly.  The mechanics are simple enough to have been passed down verbally from each tribe’s Cavemaster (CM) to her (or his) apprentice(s).

Incidentally, it's also a great introductory RPG system for kids!

Available for this game:  Please check out "Dinosaurs of the Lost Valley", an expansion that adds 24 categories of dinosaur and two playable saurian races!

Also available:  From time to time we publish a fun "Pay What You Want" paper mini (free or leave a tip if you like). For example, you can download Columbian Mammoths and Beedoweks (Ceratosaurids).

Thanks for your feedback. The fictional races were a conscious decision; paleontology is a rapidly developing field; many new facts were uncovered even as wrote the game. We decided we didn't want to saddle our game with an attempt to portray real ancestral species, only to have our versions disproved by new discoveries months or years later. This also gave us the opportunity to make the game species a bit more diverse. You are, of course, encouraged to adapt things to suit your own preferences. Thanks for your purchase!

I like the system and such, buuuuuut hated the made up species. There's plenty of real world human ancestors and sibling species that could have been used. It totally messed with my immersion. I'll have to adjust that to my standards and make my own.

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.
