Skinchangers: Open Beta Test

Skinchangers: Open Beta Test


In Skinchangers, you play an animal shapeshifter - Racoon, Crow, Owl, Bobcat, or Fox - created by the spirit of that animal type to root out the forces of desecration and fight the abominations that arise from it.  The setting may remind players of Neverwhere, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, and a number of other urban fantasy settings (which were all absolutely in mind when creating it).

The system for Skinchangers uses a small fistful of either Fate dice or standard six-siders; some components of it may remind readers of the Red Box Hack, Apocalypse World, or Fate Accelerated edition (because that's where those components came from, and proudly so); other pieces are relatively unique to the game. 

This is an open beta-test version of the game.  It is divided into two files - The Playbook contains rules for character creation and action, while the Guidebook contains setting material and advice on setting up your region of the world and situation within it.

Because it is a beta-test version, you can expect some text errors, duplicated art, rough bits that need rebalancing, and so on.  The game is fully functional, but not necessarily fully tightened up or perfectly explained - that's why it's an open beta test.

Your input is wanted.  This can be anything from "I read a few pages and what I saw was" to "Having read the whole thing" to (ideally) "We gave it a go, and...".  That feedback can be emailed to, relayed to me on Google+, left as a comment or review right on this page, or by any other means of contact you have for me.

I'd love to see separate form fillable character sheets at some point!

I like the changes! Worth mentioning perhaps that the section on skinchanger sexuality seems to also cover gender, and might well be titled to reflect that. Other than that I'm not seeing anything that I would think needs a change. Really love it, it's a great idea and really well executed and I'd love to be able to play with a group instead of just reading it.

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.
