Sword & Scoundrel: Open Beta Document

Suggested Price $5.00

Sword & Scoundrel is a player-driven role-playing game of passion, violence, and general skullduggery. It's a morality play presented as an HBO character drama, set against a backdrop of intrigue and swordplay in a dark fantasy Renaissance setting. It's a game where players declare what's most important to their characters and see it challenged through play. It's a game about seeing how far you will go, what lines you are willing to cross, and what (or who) you are willing to sacrifice for what you hold most dear.

The edition available here is part of an ongoing public beta test. The document is available free of charge, but if you find value in it you can support us by donating above. Funds donated will go towards buying art and other production expenses in preparation of a more complete product.

Thanks for your support.

You've managed to snap it up before it was even announced as released! The official announcement will come in the next day, along with the character sheet.

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.
