Fiasco: American Disasters


AMERICAN DISASTERS is a collection of highly-polished Fiasco Playsets along with new optional rules for extended campaign-style play. These rules, called Trainwreck Mode, offer a new experience for veteran Fiasco players and address a frequent request by fans by helping you chain multiple sessions and Playsets together for a longer, richer, and more catastrophic story!

The included Playsets were written and developed in-house and chosen specifically for this collection to match the Trainwreck rules. They’re all heavily-playtested and proven fiascos!

Played the office-centric playset and had a great time. Would recommend it. There are others to play besides just that one as well. They also had some pretty interesting trilogy rules that looked fun. [...]

The thing to keep in mind regarding Fiasco: American Disasters is, "It's only five bucks." It's not brimful of content like The Fiasco Companion was, but it's cheaper. You get 8 pages of "Trainwreck Mode" rules for running mini-camp [...]

One of the issues with Fiasco, particularly if you've been raised on more traditional role-playing, is that by its very nature, a game is a one-shot. If that has been holding you back, this might be worth a look... because it starts by providing a mech [...]

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.
