Corruption v2 - Player's Handbook

Suggested Price $3.99

Tabletop RPG and clone Corruption switches to the familiar Player's Handbook, Gamesmaster's Guide and Monsters approach.

Corruption is an OSR aka Old School roleplaying game system (RPG), which translates almost instantly to many familiar tabletop systems. The game remixes the rules of the world's most popular fantasy RPG - published by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson in 1974 - to appeal to new players, teenagers and young adults.

Even if you already have a rule set, Corruption contains a great deal of new, imaginative content that can be plugged straight into many other tabletop RPGs.

The content focuses on challenge-based gameplay and step-by-step support for adventure - and campaign-building. The titles also set out options for rapidly shaping gameplay to offer gritty and/ or grimy heroic adventures - with a comic book 'dark' flavour. This is supported by:

  • extra 'dark' or threatening races, monsters, classes and treasures.
  • gritty campaign challenges.
  • practical resources for adding a twist of evil to any campaign.

The new version uses fresh colour images and slots in new gameplay options. That includes extra classes, additional monsters and expanded worldbuilding.

Corruption now acts as a set of OSR resource booklets, so if you’re not looking for a system you can just grab the monsters or the campaign building. Everything plugs straight into most other Old School systems.


The following list of features outlines some of the options and content we've included in Corruption - without treading on the toes of the original rules!


  • Sticks to 1d20.
  • Defaults to full rounds combining moving, missile attacks, spellcasting and h2h attacks.
  • Optional Old School-friendly skills system.
  • Optional rules encourage gritty and grimy gameplay using heroic characters.
  • Challenge-focused gameplay.
  • Classic and challenge-based experience (XP) options.


  • Highly compatible with Old School/ OSR games.
  • Content drawn from across the full range of System Reference Documents (SRDs).
  • Easy switching between Original Game compatibility and Corruption.


  • A dusting of new tricks for older classes, such as Assassins, Bards and Monks.
  • New classes, monsters, spells and items, including a selection of monster classes.


  • Support for rapid adventure- and campaign-building.
  • Guidelines on priming and sharing expectations during play.
  • Guidelines on adding a twist of evil to any game.


  • A combination of print and tablet-friendly PDF layout.
  • Word/ OpenOffice class templates and quick start PC sheets included.

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.
