The Random Chance  Issue

The House of Ill Fortune - Minigame and Random Encounters Table
It stands at the edge of town, or on the oldest street, or out in the country. It is usually decades – sometimes even centuries – old, although it might be new and modern and alien in this way instead. Its doors and windows resemble a screaming face, or express the bland idiocy of a serial killer. It is the haunted house, and you have found yourself inside it while we talked. And now the door swings shut, although there is no wind.

The House of Ill Fortune lies somewhere in the misty halfway world between “random encounter table” and “minigame,” and you can certainly use it as both, or either. As a random encounter table, or random scenario design generator, the GM can simply use this as an idea mine and pick her preferred outcome from any given table or set of options. Toward the game axis, playing the card you’re dealt is kind of the point, but don’t wreck the game if something just seems completely impossible to fit into the story you’re building.

Chance would be a fine thing
This issue we approach the realm of chance. Rather than deep-diving into how probability is used in game design theory - which would be tedious to those less interested in mathematics - we shall instead create some new RuneQuest creatures, items and spells which manipulate chance.

11 Shipwrecks – a Random Encounter Generator
These eleven shipwrecks represent a diverse array of ships and crews with potentially fantastical elements and curious discoveries amid their cargoes. (We’ve also included a bonus wreck that might not be a ship at all.) Get out your dice!

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.
