System DL Manual and Players Field Guide


Ready for a paradigm shift? Welcome to System DL, a new direction in role-playing! System DL is completely diceless. Put away those polyhedrons, they're no good here. You won't miss them, except maybe as something to rattle around, build teetering towers in the middle of the playing area and accidentally drop into the nachos.

System DL still plays like the old diced games everyone's used to. After all, if, as Einstein once said, God doesn't play dice with the Universe, then why should you?

System DL includes the innovative Ten-Minute Character Generation System, which creates balanced, well-rounded characters with actual backgrounds, not just numbers on a page. Game play is amazingly fast without sparing detail. If you're not sure the speed and fun of a diceless system is right for you, this manual even includes simple rules for playing with dice.

This package contains both the 64-page System DL Manual and Player's Field Guide and the 34-page System DL Rules Grab Bag booklet. The Grab Bag contains all kinds of crazy stuff for use with System DL: alternate chargen rules, quick conversions to/from d20, an entire half-baked comedy game venue entitled "Zombies vs. Robots vs. Ninja vs. Pirates vs. Cowboys", and even more such oddities.

Get ready to see your games truly unleashed with System DL.

This system is generic, quite simple, and just what I want. The guide is well done, simple again, just text, and well written. However, the GM guide is not available yet, and figuring out how to GM from a player's manual is a bit annoyin [...]

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.
