CRGE, Conjectural Roleplaying GM Emulator

Suggested Price $5.00

CRGE is a GM emulator that works on adding the unexpected to your imagination. CRGE is a tiered system to create a role-playing experience without a GM. At the base level the system works to answer "yes or no" questions while constantly pushing the game towards the unexpected. At the intermediate level, the system weaves story threads together to give each scene a focus in advancing a specific narrative. At the high level, CRGE provides frameworks to tell complete stories by yourself, with a group of friends, or even online.

Best of all CRGE is system and setting agnostic. It will overlay your favorite roleplaying games with ease.

More tutorials for CRGE can be found at the Conjecture Games Facebook page!

Wow. I only just became aware of solo gaming this year (thanks to Ironsworn) and started looking into GM emulators. Like most people, I am sure, I found Mythic, but it didn't really seem to click with me for some reason. Then I discovered CRGE, UNE, and BOLD. Great stuff.

I wanted to check out what else Conjecture Games had to offer, only to discover that Zach Best has passed away. I am honestly, truly, quite sad. I wish I had discovered this years ago and been able to chat with him about the system, or say thanks for creating it.

I really liked CRGE, but I do have one small, niggling 'complaint':

... I wish I could buy it in Print-on-Demand! What a wonderful time it would be to have this on a shelf.

Wanting this as a bound book, also, this was my first attempt at binding printed pages. I'll say it didn't go as planned, but I've still gotten a great little journey narrated mostly using this, and am at this point not likely to re-try the binding - But I've since taken to just 3-ring-bindering. Highly suggested.

I downloaded this for free and then bought it for $5. What a great system! Thank you for creating something this good and then trusting people to try it first.

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.
