Metatoy System

Watermarked PDF
Metatoy is a traditional tabletop roleplaying game, played with pencils, paper, three or more six-sided dice, and friends. 
It uses old school rpgs as its basis, with a lot of influence from modern rpg such as The Black Hack, Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells, and Dungeon Questing. Metatoy isn’t exactly OSR, but it does have that Old School Spirit from games of yore.

Any plans for a physical copy, soft or hard?

For full disclosure, I received a free copy of this product from the creator and have created items for previous versions of the system in the past. That all being said, I do stand by the following review and wouldn't be writing it at all if I didn't enjoy the product on a personal level.

METATOY is a great and simple system, easily adaptable, and illustrated with a lot of love. I've been following its various iterations from early days in my blogging life and I've always been impressed with the sense of fun Robertson Sondoh Jr from Experimental Playground is able to hammer in. METATOY, over LARA and Savage Flower Kingdom, is a more refined presentation of the rules with enough expanded bits to let you easily build your own game off of the framework. Unlike some other "generic systems", METATOY keeps its dice count low and everything simple enough that younger playing groups shouldn't have any issue grokking the rule set for ease of play.

There's a lot here to work with, and...See more

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.
