A Bunch Of Unlikely Heroes

The Green Ford,
The Iron Mountains,
And the Forest of the Thousand Souls

The game is a fantasy framework that allows you to play adventures in a remote corner of an imaginary land.

Part of the setting is determined during characters creation. Players have the chance to bring into the game for example certain non-human species like elfs, dwarfs or half-ogres. Magic or divine powers are also probably present and hinted at, again during the characters creation process.

There is some inspirational material available for the GM, but the best approach to the game is to come to the table ready to do a lot of improvisation.


ABOUH (which sounds strangely similar to "about") is a rules-light Role Playing Game using mechanics inspired mostly by the Otherkind Dice from Vincent Baker.

Besides the obvious credit to Vincent Baker, additional influences are from Apocalypse World (guess what, again from Vincent Baker), and Fate (from Evil Hat).

Additional credit goes to Delos Adamski for inspiring part of the introductory questions with his AW Quick starts, and to Into The Odd, which inspired a lot of the tone of this adventure manual.

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.
