Tales & Legends

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$1.50

Tales & Legends—The Adventure Game is a minimalistic fantasy roleplaying game in a condensed format. The rules are very simple and only requires two six-sided dice, pencils and character sheets or ordinary paper to play the game. Despite it’s condensed format, this book contains all the rules necessary to play, and there’s even a bestiary with more than 80 monsters to challenge the players.

Let the Adventure begin!

I was waiting for a cover as well (as shown in the preview above), and I just realized it's been a year since this was last brought up. So any progress on getting a pdf with the cover?

Wow, I had no idea that Tales & Legend would become so popular! My intentions for it was to have a minimalistic and simple game available and leave it at that. Now I have to rethink it a bit, if there's enough interest in it then I Think that it would deserve more material to be added.

Thank you for your input!

Heh. I received the game that it is inspired by for Christmas '91 or '92 when I was in high school. I'd already owned its 'parent' game years prior (though it was far too rules-heavy) and I was annoyed that this new take was such a nice, simple system and was presented in such an odd and bit-too-childish/silly way. I eventually noted it as a severely wasted opportunity. I'm grateful you took the time to create a full-on rules set from this.

As a heads up, page 24 with the special abilities has several lines of text that do not finish.

Same with the weapon chart on page 44 and equipment chart on page 47

I will try to add one later, and I will also add an updated character sheet, no eta yet though as I'm pretty much buried in work right now.

I came to ask about a cover also. I like to print and hand-bind a copy for myself and a nice color print of that cover would be really cool.

Urgh. Was going to edit my question so as not to draw ire/attention from certain, overly-litigious companies/estates but it's too late. Apologies.
So, um, yeah. I'll try again.
This is a beefed-up 'clone' of a certain rules-lite early '90s game based on an incredibly famous fantasy world, yes?
Hardback, please. :)

Hi there, it is inspired by the LoR adventure game, but with the setting removed. I'm glad you liked it!

As for a hardcover, well, if there's enough interest then sure! I'm rather surprised that it became this popular, I just wanted to a have a simple and short but self-contained game.

Tbh, there haven't been any more plans to make more material for it besides the rule book itself.

Best Regards, MHGames

Cheers. I've lauded the game on various circles as it deserves it. It's inspiration was a solid lil game (as well you know as you've followed it's footsteps). I'm glad others have looked into the game. You've done good work here (not perfect, but that's okay). I hope you continue to put due effort into T&L though I understand other games you're working on are your main focus taking a peek at your blog. Thank you so very much for T&L and I hope you, at the very least, make it the best it can legally be for what it is and what it's source could have/should have been. Cheers, again. :)

This little game is great. It seriously deserves a hardcover option here and on Lulu.
Also, I have to know for certain, though it seems pretty obvious: This is a take on the QuestGame/TolkienQuest/Lord of the Rings Adventure Game rules isn't it? It sure seems so. Thank you for doing so and doing justice to those solid, fun and simple rules and fleshing it out. Honestly, I can't believe it took so long for someone to do so (and do it rather well). Cheers!

I'll see what I can do, but it's very low in priority right now, I'm currently very busy at the moment.

Isnt't this Myfarog's cover?

It's stock art, so there's probably other publishers using this cover as well, it's not exclusive for Myfarog.

Format
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.
