Mechanisms For Tabletop Roleplaying, Set 2

Suggested Price $1.00

Mechanisms For Tabletop Roleplaying, Set 2 is a compilation of five short articles for refining your rules; think of it as the second issue of an irregular newsletter on game hacks.  The articles in this set are:

  1. Breath present a unified resource method for encumbrance and effort pools.
  2. Mistrust creates an easy way to create places where Xenophobia and general distrust is a significant issue, primarily for investigation and horror gaming.
  3. The Death Gift talks about ways to handle the legacies of dead and dying characters.
  4. Overload presents some general guidelines on expanding resource pools.
  5. Auras is a simple trick for rewarding players as they reinforce each other's character concepts.

This is the second set of such articles; you can find the first set here.

In addition to being a general-use set of tools, the Mechanisms are part of a larger gaming platform.  It is recommended that readers also look over Fundamentals of Tabletop Roleplaying, a basic run-through of "What happens in a roleplaying game?", and Situations For Tabletop Roleplaying, a set of five situation-generators.

    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.
