The Seventeen Deadly Trials of Queen Mab

Watermarked PDF

"Welcome, esteemed travelers and victims!  Congratulations on making it this far, more or less intact.  But I forget myself.  Introductions are in order.

I am the Daughter of Emerald, Lady of Winter, and Mistress of Nightmares and Wishes.  I am Queen Mab of the Fae.  These are my games.  Have you the gall and the will to defeat them?"

Mab herself has summoned you to provide the evening's entertainment!  Stealing you from your bed at night, the Fae Queen has challenged you to complete a series of deadly challenges that will test the problem-solving, storytelling and social skills of the players.

Different than most roleplyaing games, this will require no dice, maps or sheets, but will require all of the wit and charm of active players.  The game is set to a time limit, to encourage players to think on their feet, and risky endeavors are decided by flipping a coin for success or failure, allowing an element of chance without significant complication.  This allows the game to run smoothly with large groups, and defines it as a Large-Group Storytelling Game, rather than a more traditional roleplaying game.

This book is designed to entertaing 6-12 players for 2-3 hours.  Gather your friends or adventuring party and see if you can make it through the Seventeen Deadly Trials of Queen Mab.

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.
