About this Product:

One of the most difficult aspects to being a game master is planning campaigns where players are constantly invested and engaged in the story and world. The Rumor System was created to solve that problem, as it allows the players to determine the outline of the main plot so that the game master doesn’t have to shoulder the entire burden. It also serves to inform the game master about the players’ motivations so that they can continue to facilitate a mutually rewarding game. The rumor system is meant to be used within any story-based game system as it generates campaign hooks.

This method is used in Game to Grow's therapeutic social skills groups, helping players collaborate on a story together. This method has been discussed at conventions, over social media, and via the Game to Grow blog.  Based on requests, this method is now available to download, and all donations will go toward expanding services to serve more families in need.

About Game to Grow:

Game to Grow is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses games of all kinds for therapeutic, educational and community growth. Game to Grow currently serves nearly 40 youth across five weekly groups, helping them overcome challenges related to autism, ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Groups feature an innovative therapeutic intervention technique using the intentional facilitation of tabletop role-playing games, most notably Dungeons and Dragons. In-game scenarios are created to target participants’ real-world areas of social growth as youth build skills they transfer into their interactions with family, at school, and in the community.  For more information, visit

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.
