Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells - Addendum

A Sword & Sorcery Rules Light Role Playing Game with Old School Spirit

It is said that the extensive library inside the Order of Chroniclers in Mezzanthia holds all the tomes ever written in this world and others, but that is a lie, for there are many volumes hidden in ancient citadels, forgotten temples, forbidden tombs and other strange places that possess secrets and mysteries capable of changing not only the course of history but also the very laws of our reality.

Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells is a rules light Role Playing Game, and the core book has just the essential to create and live adventures in a world of swords and sorcery.  SS&SS is easily customizable and its underlying system is ripe for use with modifications.

This Addendum brings a variety of additions and options that can be implemented in your games to make it more “complete” or aligned with the tastes of whoever is playing. These rules do not exhaust the possibilities for play, and every group is encouraged to make the game their own in unique ways.

In addition, this tome also contains several tools and generators to help Referees and players create game elements and story seeds.

In the tradition of our hobby, take what you like and modify what you do not. Make the game your own.

I would love to. The game is going to be release in Italian soon. Maybe if I could find a friendly publisher to partner with them...

What "non-human" characters are in the book? Is there somewhere I can learn more about this game system? Thanks.

Never mind!
I just got both the books with PWYW and looked around myself. Glad i did. I'll be picking up print copies of both the SS&SS books.

Will there be a print edition? I like to keep electronics away from my gaming. :)

It sure will. I am waiting OBS to approve the files to order a proof copy. I've already ordered a proof copy over Lulu. As soon as I take a look at them, they will be available!

Great addition to a very nice system. The art in both this book and the basic rules are fantastic, almost on a par with Dungeon Crawl Classics. I like the magic system quite a lot.

Thanks for the kind words, Brian! DCC RPG is certainly a very strong influence in my material (it's one of my favorite games of all time). More stuff is already being written for the game, including a Science Fantasy version and a setting for SS&SS that will funciont like a toolkit instead of a set in stone lore book.

A Science Fantasy version for SS&SS? Sold! Is there already a schedule for this?

It’s still in the works! Hopefully I will have it done by mid 2018! It will be fairly complete, with content from both SS&SS, it’s Addendum and much more!

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.
