Chronicles of Skin 1.1 — Improved examples, improved layout.

Chronicles of Skin is a game of scribbling and storytelling. Using cards and a pencil, you and your friends will tell a story, recording it on paper with doodles and glyphs.

This PDF provides the complete rules of play. It is intended for people who already have the game or who'd like to learn more about it.


When play begins, you interpret symbols and create flags using a custom deck of 72 gorgeous playing cards (available from Cobweb Games). From these flags you determine the traits that sculpt the story of your war. You will introduce characters from both cultures and bring them to the brink of extinction. Which cultures survives? That's up to you.

  • Players: 3-5
  • Duration: 90 mins or 3 hours (two game modes)
  • Ages: 14+

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.
