Know Victory, Know Risk
No Risk, No Victory

 What story do you want to tell?  A thrilling tale of knights of old?  A grim and gritty tale of street-level action and dirty dealing?  A star-spanning space opera?  Perhaps that no one has ever seen before, spun entirely out of the whole cloth of your imagination?

The tools for telling all of these stories as an interactive activity are here in this book.

The Victory System is a multi-genre Role Playing Game that gives you what you need to tell the stories that you want to tell.  Set your game in the Fantasy Era, the Near-Modern Era, the Space Era, or a Custom Era enitrely of your own design.

Players can build Characters to suit the GMs campaign and their own concepts, from "talented amateurs" to skilled professionals.  Included are fully-integrated rules for Martial Arts, Magic, Artificial Enhancements (Mechanica), Powers, and Psionics, as well as all the weapons, armor, and miscellaneous equipment that makes adventuring possible.

Victory is by no means assured, however.  Danger lurks in every Era, and it's going to take a lot of Risk to see adventures through to the end.  No Risk, No Victory.

The Victory System is 100% backwards-compatible with the Inverted 20 System used in Hot Chicks, the Roleplaying Game.  You can use any of the 100+ Hot Chicks: the RPG products with the Victory System.

Victory System...OH YEAH! My personal feeling is that this game is just plain good old-fashioned FUN. It is not a perfect game (but what is?), but it's one of the best, in my opinion, at what it does - providing a fairly simple mechanic, covering a [...]

The book itself is very well laid out and informative. One thing I like about it is that it can provide ideas for storywriting even if you are not doing a adventure. When I was looking through, I thought of a few things that could add to a fantasy sett [...]

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.
