Moebius MacGuffins: The Gift

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$1.00

MacGuffins are those items or bits of story that serve to trigger different parts of the plot into action. What would The Maltese Falcon be without that classic figurine of a black bird? Or Raiders of the Lost Ark be without the Ark of the Covenant? What would The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings be without the One Ring?


Though they’re used all the time in films, television, and books, we sometimes use them in our roleplaying game campaigns as well. This series of products aims to provide some ideas on how to randomly generate plot ideas based around simple objects so our players and PCs can sink their teeth into them.

The idea for Moebius MacGuffins: The Gift sprung from a topic explored in the RPG Blog Carnival hosted by the World Builder Blog in December 2015 (Homebrew Holiday Gifts) and rapidly took on a life of its own. This product collects the articles I wrote on the topic and expands on them, including ideas for:

  • Potential Adventure Seeds
  • Generating Simple Gift Ideas to Explore
  • Sending "Special" Gifts from Enemies of the PCs
  • and "What's in the Box?"

You get some random tables to help generate ideas as well as some ideas to ponder.

As with most Moebius Adventures products, the MacGuffins series will be system- and genre-neutral, offering ideas for multiple genres including fantasy, the Wild West, science fiction, and even modern worlds.

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.
