Forty Thieves

Suggested Price $1.00

Aladdin had it easy. Find the magic lamp, free the genie, and live like a prince for the rest of your life. Ali Baba learned the magic words and stole a king’s ransom from other thieves. So much hard work ruined! Not honest work, perhaps, but hard nonetheless. Your group of thieves, and the rest of the Forty, are in the serious profession of stealing whatever gold and jewelry you can get your hands on. Forty Thieves is a minimalist RPG from Valent Games. At only six pages long, and with copious opportunity for character death (it's called Forty Thieves for a reason...) it's ideal for a short evening one-shot or "beer-and-pretzels" game. There's a lightning-fast character creation system, a bunch of sample hazards, and game mechanics that make your character's bad side get him into trouble again and again. Can you steal the Sultan's crown - and possibly his wife - and live to tell the tale? Or will your pride get the better of you and end you in the oubliette? Only Fate will tell...

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.
