Welcome to Delve

You awaken on a beach surrounded by the debris from a wrecked ship, you are not alone as others seem to be also awakening from their ordeal. You had no time to pack and all you have is what is in your pockets or what you can find amongst the wreckage. This begins your adventures on the island of Cragbarren.

Delve is a fantasy RPG of discovery and adventure, you are on a lost island with no way to leave. The island is filled with dungeons, ruined cities, old caves, mad mages and monsters, with a lot of opportunity for an awesome GM to create their own.

This book has everything you need to play:

Both quick and advanced Character Creation.
Rules for lighting and fighting your way across Cragbarren
The town of Wreck Haven
The City of Stench
Gear and Equipment including crafting rules.
Magic spells
Bestiary
And much more.

So grab a sword and some friends and go seek your fortune or just some adventure on the island of Cragbarren.

I really enjoy this book and system. I think you need to do a kickstarter and take all the additional material from the PDFs in the series and combine them into the book. I hate pdfs and while I have them and like the material that they add, I do not like having to rely on my laptop that is prone to crashing and freezing. I do not have a printer. This is a great system and deserves a new edition with all the materials collected into one book.

This would also allow you a chance to re organize and be sure that things are placed in an order for easiest learning of the game. The game would be able to reach a new and greater audience. A new printing would fix some of the print copy issues (my hardcover had many, although still totally worth getting), like a picture out of place and covering some type. You would be able to add some things if you've had any new ideas. A few tables and advice for solo play would be great with the current situation the world finds itself in.

Just a thought....See more

Yeah, the plan is to do a Kickstarter for the Gnarling City Guide which will include a 2.5 of the core rules where I can do all of the above and more. Thanks for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the game.

I tried this system on a whim after seeing a review posted online. Our group is made up of one GM and 3 players, and we have played multiple systems, ranging from various d6, d20, "proprietary dice", etc. This was the group's first time playing a d100 system, and we love it. The core book is an easy read (so much so I found I almost read through it in one sitting without realizing it). It includes a beginning adventure that runs smoothly and explains the rules as you go along. Character creation is a breeze. The character sheets are simple and clean. NPC's are well thought out and easy to roleplay (shoutout to Cedric) The art is well done. It has the OSR vibe and that's a good thing. I've since gone back and purchased the companion book, the Castaways guide, and the Everglade and Other Tales pdf. There are a few spelling errors in the book, but they are easily overlooked. If you are looking for a new system, give this one a shot.

No problem. Thanks for making the game! What did you have in mind for the value of coinage in the barter system? I know it has intrinsic value as a metal, and metals have different uses (Iron/steel would seem to be worth more than gold on the island), but most of the setting seems to lend itself to coinage not being worth much. Is there a good "rule of thumb" for determining barter value of coins? Thanks!

To be honest, I loved this. I am building rules where Magic Users can drain Magic Points from other party members in a worse case scenario. Of course Magic is connected to Life, so there may be some unfortunate side effects...... who can say? Muahahahahaha!!!

started to read to rules and was curious why every class was getting MP, when only the wizard and witch have magic?

We are planning a spell book which will have spells for all classes, so that was set in place for in the core book so we would not need to later.

"The island is filled with dungeons, ruined cities, old caves.."
Is there a map of the Craigbarren and Wreck Haven? What about the dungeons? How much of the 122 pages is setting vs system rules?

The PDF comes with a map of Cragbarren and has a guide inside to the City of Stench. To get more dungeons and stuff I suggest also picking up the Castaways Guide to Cragbarren which is also available on here https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/259579/Castaways-Guide-to-Cragbarren. Pages 7 - 57, 58 - 82 is a guide to Wreck Haven which includes Magic, Crafting, etc, pages 83 - 90 is a guide to the City of Stench, and pages 91-117 are all monsters. The rules are set out as one huge play example, and Wreck Haven explains certain rules which are linked to certain traders, resting & leveling up at the Tavern, crafting and barter at the blacksmiths, Magic, and alchemy at the Mages Guild. Hope this helps.

Three of the six pages in the sample are blank, one is a title page, one is credits and one is a table of contents. I have zero idea what sort of rules this game uses or if my players would enjoy it.

Updated the preview so you see more of the game hopefully, it's a d100 system.

Format
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.
