Mayhem, Volume 1: Core Content


Bring on the Mayhem! 

This fantasy roleplaying game combines vivid character concepts and elegant game mechanics to bring your original, unique characters to great adventure, stretching the players' capacity for both creativity and tactical depth. 

Using the Skill Die core system for elegant, fast skill checks, the Combat Clock Timing mechanic, where faster actions are faster and slower actions hit harder, and the Feedback Magic system, which dares casters to stretch their limits, risking damage for bigger spell effects, Mayhem offers original, accessable mechanics that provide great depth in gameplay and incredible customization.

Choose from more than 30 race and talent options, including Divine, Demonic, Fae, Shapeshifters, Undead, and Animal races. Arm yourself with martial weapons, elemental spells, and more. This book contains a wide array of character abilities, which can be mixed to create vast variety and vivid concepts.  Craft unique characters and pit them against the Crimson Realms world, an see what adventure the Mayhem game has to offer.

These rules, while standing proudly on their own, also provide some tools for conversion from other systems, tapping into a wealth of readily available material.

P.S.  The logos on the margins of the book are buttons!  The left-handed images are chapter icons, while the right-handed images are sub-chapter icons.  Use them for easy PDF navigation on both tablet and computer screen.

This is a real hidden gem of a system with some really cool rules. This isn't just another d20 based system. The higher an attribute is, the larger sized die you roll. Advancement is done through skill points, and you can mix abilities from different [...]

Utilizing an elegant point-bank system of character creation and a unique battle timing mechanic Mayhem is perhaps the best fantasy RPG I have ever stumbled across. The fighting mechanics make battles less about whose turn it is to swing and more about [...]

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.
