This manual contains the core rules of the What'sOLD is NEW roleplaying game system, designed for games set in the modern era.

Whereas other books in this series tell you how to create a character, build a world, or buy equipment, this book tells you how to play the game. With rules for attribute checks, countdowns, luck, combat, injury and death, objects, vehicles, and the environment, inside you'll find all the rules you need to adjudicate any task your characters might attempt.

This book is a What's O.L.D. is N.E.W. core rulebook.

So... is this a complete product? Will there be a full book? I know that the other two games are $20 a pop, so I can't tell if this is a full product or yet another preview.

Does this have the v1.2 stamp?

It’s the first edition of this particular book. But it is fully up to date in terms of the overall WOIN ruleset.

...and I'm already standing in line for this one. Russ, if you see someone waiting outside your front door with a sign "will work for N.O.W. Comprehensive", that's me.

Ditto on the below question. Also, I already purchased the Modern Action Heroes and Modern Equipment pdfs. Will there be a discount if a comprehensive book is published?

Thank you.

There will be one later this year. The pricing isn't yet determined, but will likely follow the pattern of OLD and NEW ($20 PDF, discounted to $10).

Is there still a more comprehensive all-in-one book planned for N.O.W. later on, like those for N.E.W. and O.L.D.?

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.
