In the days when roads still lead to the city of Nod, when its name was still found on maps and charts, when it was spoken of as more than a half-remembered fable, the walls of the city stood tall over the grassy plains, where now there is naught but sand. In that time, none passed into or out of the city, save for on the night of the full moon, when the stone walls grew as insubstantial as clouds.

This is a game about a barbarian from the Shivering Steppe, hunting human quarry within the walls of the city. One night is all that is given to find the quarry and flee the city. But Nod is a place of dark alleyways, strange rituals, degenerate worship and corrupt rule. The barbarian's journey will have many crooked turns, and will never end where you expect.

One of the best games I have ever come across. Played it twice and had a blast. The quality of writing is incredible. The design is elegant and the way the information is presented is probably the best I have ever seen. It allows you to just run the damn thing! An rpg that you can run straight away, who would have thought? A treasure trove, it deserves a lot more recognition.

Have just read Nod and I'm really impressed with what you've done - great work. Can't wait to play a game or two of it.

I'm slightly confused. What is the difference between the Free Booklet and the Nod RPG advertised on this page?

The free booklet does not contain all the characters or the Tarot cards used for resolution. I don't think you could play with just the booklet.

Hi Robert,

I've edited the page to make this clearer. Yes, it's the full rules of the game, but it's missing the character cards (except for the two example characters). The character cards are required for play.

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.
