Where Fools Dare to Tread

Watermarked PDF

Horror and Conspiracy Free-Style Role-Play™, where a group of psychic detectives are keeping the world safe from netherlings. Great for Halloween play or for a dedicated group of the truly weird. Play with a neutral Ref. Advancement of levels with Ignoble system of nine tasks. Advantage phase and Responsive phase combat system. Character background generator weaving thirty years of cold war global melt down with conspiracy theory into playable backgrounds for the characters. Quick & Dirty combat for monstrous opponents. Complete rules as published inside Space Gamer magazine in 1993. Very tight system with mechanics designed to make your players fear for the lives of their characters, not through massive damage but by specific vulnerabilities. System of buzzwords become serious penalties but only against certain horrors. The type of demonic host the players face is always uncertain and helps generate a mystery and anxiety inside of play. Best integration of game mechanics into horror ever. Includes the scenario, I Must Die, from the same Space Gamer issue with cover art by John E. Holland.

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.
