Skyscrapers & Sorcery White Box Rules

Watermarked PDF

 What if the world ended and no one really noticed?

What if almost everyone just picked themselves up the next day, dusted themselves off and went back to their routines as if nothing major had happened?

That is what happened here. Sometime in the late part of the 19th century, something exploded in several places around the world at the same time.

Scientists say they think it was a number of comets or some other sort of space body hitting the planet. Some people claim that we were being attacked by Martians. Some folks just didn’t really notice. The explosions caused lots of death and destruction and affected every continent in the world.

Strange things live in the shadows of the world. Other worlds seem to have intruded upon ours and you are one of the few who decided to take notice and take action. Folks have names for people like you, the most polite of which is Adventurer. There is something that makes you want to notice the world and what goes on outside the daily humdrum lives of everyone else, and you have an itch to explore the dark corners and possibly even right some wrongs.

It’s been several decades since the Event and you have decided that it is time to scratch the itch of Adventure. Welcome to Skyscrapers & Sorcery, may your adventures be many and fruitful and may your lives be valiant and your death be bravely faced.

An Old School, White Box compatible game system.

I sent a new coupon out, I hosed up and put a 1 in the number of times the original could be used. Did you get the re-issue of the coupon?

Are you planning a POD version at all?

Yes, as a matter of fact, UPS tracking indicates I should have it this monday, 18 January. Assuming I didn't hose up the layout, I'll upload a corrected file that fixes the few typos that have been caught and tell the to let it loose upon the world. When I ordered the proof copy, it took about two to three days for them to have the proof copy ready to go, so hopefully by the end of next week. POD price (with or without PDF) will be $9.99. Those people who have already purchased a pdf will receive a coupon to reflect the price difference.

Sweet! I'm not normally into OSR rpgs (save maybe Sin Nomine stuff), but this looks interesting enough to pick up. Especially since the rules are close to White Star, which I also have and like. So definitely will purchase when the PoD is ready

No idea why the preview only shows the character sheet file, but the update system does not seem to want to allow me to change that, so I've made a custom preview version available for free. Apologies for any inconvenience this caused or causes potential customers. The good news is that the custom preview allows me to show more than a few, sequential pages.

It is available at:

Got it sorted out, now the preview is correct, but I'm leaving the custom preview up for downloading as well. The page with the map on it makes the pdf too big to add as a simple custom preview to the primary product, so hopefully it does not cause too much confusion.

Well, the 'Full Sized Preview' of *just* the Character Sheet has to be the single most useless preview I have ever seen ... even less useful than those merely consisting of the Title Page and Table of Contents. Would you like to actually provide *less* usable information for someone to base a purchase decision on? It would be hard to achieve.

Thanks for your feedback, The preview was supposed to be the first ten pages of the file. I'll update that so that it has what I intended for the preview to be.

Alrighty, got it sorted out, and I put up a custom preview as a free download. Hope this helps, appreciate you pointing out the error.

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.
