An ancient monarch, a star quarterback, the CEO of a dot-com empire...
 
In Serpent’s Tooth, we create a story about a King in the twilight of his rule. (The King can be a woman - it's just a game term!) One of us plays the King, and the rest of us play members of the court, each with a hidden nature and each able to seize the King's power for their own. Through play, we will discover the fate of the King, the fate of the Kingdom, and what power does to the powerful.
 
Kill the GM and Take His Stuff
 
Serpent's Tooth is a tabletop game of collaborative storytelling. In it, we choose a King, create a Kingdom to rule, then play out a series of scenes to discover what happens.
 
At the start of the game, the King possesses three Regalia - a crown, castle, and sword - that give him or her authority over the other characters, places, and threats in the kingdom. Like a Game Master in a traditional role-playing game, the king wields vast power over the Kingdom.
 
The rest of us play members of the King's Court. We might begin as subservient nobles, losers, jocks, or lowly dish-dogs at a fast food restaurant, but through play, when we seize the King's Regalia, we seize the Narrative Authority that goes with it.
 
Serpent's Tooth is fun, fast, and a little profound: It is both a love letter to the golden age of RPGs and an exploration of what it means to rule.

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.
