Unbound is a universal, rules-light roleplaying game that puts the whole player group at the forefront of the world. As players make their characters, they’re guided by the gamesmaster through a series of questions to build the setting, the plot, and the supporting characters that’ll make up the game.

Fleshing out that world through play, games are broken up into 5-session long adventures focusing around a set of characters – and once they’ve told their story, the group moves on to a new set of characters to explore a different facet of the setting they’ve created.

“Mate. Unbound. Bloody excellent. […] We’ve never had so much fun building and playing in a campaign world together.” – Anthony Stiller, games designer and artist

“Unbound has a great combination of action and drama – it’s tactical enough to get your teeth into, but cinematic enough that you don’t get bogged down in the mechanics and always have a chance to do something cool.” – Joanna Piancastelli, winner of the 2015 Golden Cobra live games award

“I think UNBOUND might be my favorite RPG, for serious. I had fun with it before, but we played again tonight with the newest rules, much changed, and it’s badass. One guy had never played an RPG before, asked if his character could be “basically Swamp Thing” and it was great to be able to say yes. And have it be true! I’ve been playing and GMing a lot of new RPGs lately and this one was by far the most fun, right out the gate.” – Andy North, livegames designer and improv genius

“Unbound is so awesome. Building a world out of stories is super satisfying – it’s like creating a mythology. A whole damn mythology!” – Ed Croft, comedy musical pirate and games designer

“The hierarchy of adventure-building tools is very very elegantly put together.” – Laura “Smith” Loolaid, writer and playtester

The book has beautiful artwork from Adrian Stone throughout, and a selection of world-building charts from such game design luminaries as Cara Ellison, Gav Thorpe, Naomi Alderman and Jason Morningstar.

Not at present; PoD doesn't have the quality we want from our physical products. But we'll keep looking, because it'd be nice to get it in physical form again.

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.
