Succession is a lightweight, narratively focused fantasy roleplaying game for creating and exploring a dark, dangerous world as your adventurers embark on their quests.  Setup and character creation is quick and straightforward, suitable for one-shot games, pickup games, and for play when your usual game is on hiatus.

Succession is thirteen pages (including illustrated cover), nine pages of rules text, and two oracle sheets (lists of names, locations, strange events, and mysterious items) to use during play.

In Succession, you play a mortal adventurer setting out on a quest, either given by your god, or in service to your home, or chosen freely for yourself.  The gods are the main element defined in the setting you and your friends will create, and while none is purely good or evil, each god has difficult tenets to adhere to, and in return each offers a chance for greatness.

Your god will strongly influence your life, as you overthrow tyrants, traverse and tame frightening landscapes, explore forgotten temples, and defend your home and people from conquest, plague, and worse.  While your god can make use of you no matter your skills, the relationship you forge (or break) with your faith and fellows will define you and your place in the world.

The simple, flexible, and clearly-written rules allow your group to explore many kinds of adventures, and the rules are designed to ensure that your adventurers can do anything their quest requires, if they risk and sacrifice enough.  Resolution uses ordinary six-sided dice, and a typical session lasts four hours, including setup and character creation.

Succession is intended for 'GMless' play, in which every player has some of the responsibilities and privileges of a traditional GM, however the rules will still work if your group prefers to use a more conventional GM/player division.

Will you stand by as your world crumbles?  Or will you venture into the unknown and discover your fate?

Hello! As usual, the review is structured from bad to good, so please take the time to read it in its entirety. The worst aspect is the lack of explanations. Starting with not stating explicitly how the function of the GM is to be handled [...]

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.
