Pale alchemists mix complex ingredients for their latest concoctions.

Play a brave knight, a cunning burglar, a serene warrior-monk, or a brilliant firemage. Are you a wild berserker, a deadly assassin, or a swashbuckling musketeer? Dozens of fantasy careers await you!

For people who bought the print versions of the previous version is there a possible chance of a discount for v1.2 in print?

Thanks for that, but I have couple of issues: Most Shields are still far too heavy, and what happened to the price of Gauntlets; I realise that some needed their prices altering some but.......a pair of Cloth Gauntlets now costs the same as a Cutlass!!?

Some of the weapons are also still too heavy.....even D&D has managed to use more realistic weights these days.

I've only had time to so far get to comparing the latest version with the previous up to current page 121, so there may be other issues I notice when I have time to carry on the comparison.

I just attempted to re-download the PDF to get the latest update (v1.2) is that not available here? I was under the impression that it would be provided free here if you already bought v1.1.

Customer avatar
Russ M March 28, 2019 5:01 pm UTC

If I understand your question correctly, that is the number of ranks you have placed in the skill.

Anyway when will the PDF be updated to 1.2? like n.e.w. and n.o.w.

So what's the point of listing the skills if they don't do anything? How do you add them to your dice pool?
Customer avatar
Russ M March 21, 2019 10:21 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Forming a dice pool can be found on pages 119-120 (in v1.1).

I've never played a trpg before so I randomly picked one and ended up buying the pdf and I'm glad I did its good but where's the rules for all the skills?
Customer avatar
Russ M March 21, 2019 1:13 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Skills are merely keywords/tags. They don’t do anything in their own right, they just form part of your dice pool which is attribute + skill + equipment. The only exceptions are those few called out in the Derived Statistics section.

Is this system more suited to high fantasy / high action, or is it also suitable for running deadly, gritty, dark fantasy games (like WFRP, for example)?

Hey! So my hardcopy of OLD came, and it's got pages 177 through 184 of some science fiction RPG in the front?

How strange! I’ve heard that DTRPG/Rpgnow is very good at replacing damaged books. Drop them a note, and I’m sure they’ll get you fixed up.

There's one on the website, Alan. Also, the last couple of pages of the PDF is the character sheet.

Got my copy in the mail yesterday. Looks great, has a great weight to it! My only complaints are the POD packaging. Nice box with no padding. Killed my binding and the corners of the cover. :(

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.
