STRINGS is designed for use in roleplaying games where death is a strong possibility for characters, and more to the point, where a potential return from the brink of death is a given.

The basic idea of Strings stems from the fallibility of memory. It is also intentionally designed to bring more weight to death in your games. In many games, death is a condition and inconvenience.


Because these are roleplaying games, death can also pull players out of the fiction of the game. An adventuring party that has been together for two years of real time, deep in a dark, sinister dungeon, loses a member, and as luck would have it, another character just happens to show up and join the party.


None of this is to say that Strings should remove the possibility of death from a game, but perhaps, it will give gaming groups a different perspective on death and, consequently, life. This focus on life will present itself as an interesting and complicated roleplaying opportunity for the characters.


What is the String you hold onto at the precipice of death?

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.
