STaRS: The Simple Tabletop Roleplaying System

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$9.99

STaRS is a universal, rules-light system, capable of handling everything from gritty noir to high-flying superheros. It walks the thin line between running on a book full of rules and running on GM fiat, remaining easy to understand without ever leaving you unsure about what you can do. Friendly towards new and experienced role-players alike, STaRS is great for one-shots and long campaigns alike.

Less time with your nose in a book.  More time with dice in your hand.  That's the promise and the power of STaRS.

A Lite Edition is also available with the base rules; this full edition, however, also includes:

  • More detailed rules and discussions about how to run physical, social, and environmental conflicts
  • Five example magic systems
  • A sample setting and town.
  • A chapter of optional expanded rules for things like mass combat, vehicles, hero points, pvp, and a whole bunch more.
  • Advice on designing characters, npcs, encounters, worlds (including my fractal world building system), and a general "how to rpg good" chapter.

(Sorry for the "<br>" tags; they appeared when I edited the comment and I can't figure out how to get them out now)

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.
