Misfortune is a narrative game in the literal sense. Its game mechanics handle the characters and story as tangible things, as something that can be affected.

Mechanically it is short and simple, but created with a strong, single-minded vision. It is a game created to run anything, and to bring any game situation the amount of drama and tension it deserves. In it, the player is given the power to forge their character’s destiny from the ground up. The simplicity of the game gives way to unlimited possibilities.

Misfortune - Dramatic Roleplaying is an unique game with:

  • A simple resolution system based on 2d6, where difficulty is based on narrative stakes.
  • Misfortune: You can reroll indefinitely, gaining more Misfortune in the process and causing you to be in more and more of a risk.
  • No character creation: You create your characters as you play, starting out with an empty character sheet.
  • Game mechanics based on narrative elements: Foreshadowing, Plot Armor and Revelations are legitimate game mechanics.
  • A comic book -style layout.

You can download the character sheet from my site.

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.
