This is a minimalist descriptive combat.

One-page, easy, d6 system, no hitpoint, skill-based, and that might be able to be used with several core systems.

It uses standard d6 dice.

It is small, only this cover page and one page system.

It can however be expanded by using the 12x12 descriptive critical charts

It is uses a small amount of words to describe if a melee or ranged weapon hits an enemy, the target location of the hit, and the intensity of the damage to the specific body area. Critical blows that result in death is soon or instant death are also included for vital body parts.

This uses three rolls of 1d6.

  1. Roll once to see if you hit.
  2. Roll for target location of hit.
  3. Roll for intensity of damage.
There is no rule for when a character dies besides 'instant death' and 'death is soon'. This focuses on the descriptive nature of combat using a few but meaninful words.
Either creating your own or interpreting a current systems is based on interpreting a few adjectives. Specific examples of the adjectives are not listed.
  • This takes into account skill using the words for proficiency of unskilled, basic skilled, skilled, or master skilled.
  • It also allows a modifier for out-of-normal range, but still in range.
  • It uses 3 weapon damage modifiers: light, normal, and heavy weapons.
  • It uses 4 types of armor that damage must surpass: no armor, light, medium, and heavy armor.
  • Three types of damages are included in this system: slashing, crushing, and piercing. Each of the damage types has 6 damage descriptions increasing in damage intensity.

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.
