Deep Love


The Pitch

You’ve come to this paradise to drop a two-and-a-half ton iron ball off the side of a ship and lower it almost a kilometer into the abyss. You’ve come to crawl inside that iron ball and go down with it, to see what there is to see down there.

You’ve come with three other brilliant adventurers, friends, and lovers, and you’ll all get a chance to descend and risk your lives in exchange for seeing things no human being has ever seen.

And maybe, in the inky darkness and cold silence, you’ll find a measure of happiness and fulfillment.

Deep Love

Deep Love is a feel-good game about the complexity of love and sea monsters. You play real people doing real stuff, exploring the deep ocean off Bermuda in the thirties. You get to see things no one has ever seen before, and you do it in awkward pairs in a sweaty bathysphere as part of an odd love quadrangle.

All based on a true story.

You need four players, two hours, and two play spaces. One represents the deck of the Ready and only needs a place to draw and keep notes. The other represents the bathysphere and should be cramped, dark, and claustrophobic. A closet will work, or a bathroom tub. These spaces need not be adjacent and, in fact, are better if separated.

Deep Love is built around two modular parts, and can be played in three ways. If you enjoy the creative, arts and crafts aspect of going on deep ocean dives, describing wonderful creatures, and illustrating them, you can omit the characters and their drama entirely. If you enjoy the dramatic arcs of the characters but don’t have any interest in the minutia of deep ocean diving or sketching sea creatures, you can just roleplay and omit the arts and crafts stuff entirely. You can combine both parts into one exciting, crafty game full of pathos and love.

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.
