The Veil: Cascade Quickstart


Glitch City is a Quickstart adventure consisting of premade characters, a small sample setting, and reference materials that include everything you need to jump start a session quickly and efficiently while retaining some of the key aspects of building your setting as a collaboration. Using this to springboard off of, you’ll be able to do a one-shot or use it as a base to start from with multiple sessions in mind. You’ll use the following included here to play this adventure:

* 5 premade playbooks with unique questions already filled out for you.

* A sample scenario.

* Printable game aids: Moves and MC sheets.

Note: This quickstart was a beta playtest with a goal to guide an MC (facilitator of the game) who had not played The Veil before. As such, the scenario is more "on rails" than is normal for PbtA games and The Veil itself. It is designed to be someone quick, used at a convention, for example.

An interesting take on cyberpunk genre, although not the kind I was looking for: I get the impression that systems here support only a very particular style of play, while I was searching for something with a wider scope. I still think it is an interes [...]

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.
