Tales of the Dice, Volume I

Watermarked PDF

The first 52 issues of the webcomic from Tales of a GM.

Tales of a GM has been running since August 2013. This means the archives are expanding steadily, and progressively harder to access. I have a dedicated page for my Tales of the Dice webcomic, which speeds the process of finding past issues.

However, these webcomics are comparatively large. Space on the website is limited, and I need a way to free space for the new issues. After starting my Reprinted Tales line in 2016, I realised I could extract older issues from the website and release them as a pdf.

The comics in Volume 1 have been deleted from the blog. This compilation is the only place to find the early issues all in sequence.

This pdf features:

  • Reprints of the 52 webcomics from year one of Tales of the Dice
  • Both original and new comments on the comics, noting connections and errors
  • BONUS reprints of 5 Travelling Dice images
  • BONUS full text of The Geek Twelve Days of Christmas
  • BONUS pdf of The Geek Twelve Days of Christmas
  • Bookmarks
  • Art Layer for easy printing
  • Internal pdf hyperlinks
  • 74 pages, including front and back covers

NOTE: This pdf is presented in landscape format to accommodate the layout of the webcomic. DriveThruRPG only accepts covers in portrait format, so I have rotated the cover you see here.

Happy Gaming

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.
