NIP'AJIN Core Rules (English)

Suggested Price $0.00

NIP’AJIN is an universal pen’n’paper role playing ruleset, designed for playing short campaigns or one-shots. It is pronounced nip-a-dshin and an acronym for a German phrase that translates to Nobody is perfect, but everybody can contribute.

NIP’AJIN fits on 4 pages. The system uses 5 dice (d4 to d12) that get exhausted after use. Only after all your dice got exhausted, they get available again. This forces characters to show weakness, as they do not always have good (larger) dice available. NIP’AJIN ...

  • does not need much preparation,
  • distributes spotlight between characters,
  • provides (meta)tactics due the dice system,
  • is designed for one-shots and short campaigns, and
  • allows use in own works due a Creative Commons license.

A few short, scenarios are available at the English NIP'AJIN homepage.

Note: NIP'AJIN is under a Creative Commons license. The PDF is also available for free and without registration at the publisher's homepage. The download here is a service for players using the OneBookShelf sites to manage their PDFs, as well as for readers who want to support the author via Pay-What-You-Want for future projects/translations.

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.
