TOSS, a bus stop RPG framework

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

TOSS creates tales of significant situations. It is a framework to play an RPG character when you normally wouldn't be able to play RPG's (at a bus stop or during a commercial break). TOSS works with virtually any RPG system to help set up a situation where something goes wrong, and then it is your job to creatively narrate the PC's way out of the situation. 

TOSS is system and setting agnostic. Examples for TOSS using various situation generators can be found at!

Simply put, fundamental stuff for setting up a situation and rolling it out. If you don't know where to start with a quick session, this gives you an idea. If you're a seasoned GM who puts together quick one-shots or just someone who daydream [...]

Two pages. Seems more like a brainstorming session/blogpost that something practical like the author's classic UNE system. Is there a community that uses TOSS? Feels like the author quickly came up with this and wanted to share it to the public for fre [...]

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.
