Monkey Business (Digital Edition)


Monkey Business is upon you!

Something stirs deep in the jungle. Rumors of a strange drug start making the rounds ... and then things start getting really hairy. Even the cannibals are upset. Monkey Business is best described as a procedural junglecrawl, all pulp and weird and very arcade. Among the files you'll get with the purchase, you'll find 6 files containing:

  • 5 factions, with all the NPCs you might ever need (and it has a dinosaur in there somewhere)
  • exploding goblin hooligans (I kid you not)
  • 160+ random encounters
  • 3.680+ jungle treasures (including quest items!)
  • rules & tools to generate a 790+ square kilometers sandbox (that's about the size of New York City) full with lots of locations and conflicts to explore and encounter
  • rules & tools to generate cannibal villages and all kinds of ruins
  • the complete gorilla HQ, with dungeon map and all
  • lots of cheat sheets for your campaign log
  • plus all kinds of whacky adventure ideas ...

And here's the catch: I'll give you 100+ pages of background and ideas and all the tools I could think of so that you can make it the mini-campaign you want for your group. In true DIY-fashion, I encourage you to take this and make it your own. Or loot what you can and make a run for it ... Either way, if any of this tickles your gonzo, feel free to take a look. And most of all: have fun rolling dice and being weird!

The system used here is Labyrinth Lord (TM), but it really should work with anything you throw at it (OSR or not), as most of it is pretty system agnostic.

Here's a little preview from the two main pdfs contained in this .zip:

Yes, definitely. As soon as I've figured out how best to do it without ruining the PWYW scheme for the digital edition. Might turn out being a separate file (Monkey Business Print Edition?). I guess there'll be a mail to the purchasers as soon as I get there and some ruckus at the usual places ...

Thank you for your interest. I'm definitely (still) working on that and hope to get it ready this year! I'm slow that way :)

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.
