Content Warning: Avarice is written to be a social drinking game. The descriptions below will include references to alcohol and Dwarves’ dependency on it. Alcohol is in no way required to play Avarice. If any players are uncomfortable with alcohol, drink water and soft drinks.

Avarice is a story-based, fiction-first roleplaying game. Players tell the tale of an underground fortress of Dwarves doomed to disaster. It is a game which chronicles the lives and accomplishments of stumpy alcoholics as they struggle to avoid sobriety. It is a silly game.

Avarice is played with a Game Master and between two and six players. Each player controls an entire Clan of dozens of Dwarves, all living in one shared community called the Fortress. During a game, the Clans of Dwarves work together to advance the grandeur of the Fortress and alleviate catastrophes that have befallen them. The players take actions, suffer consequences, and draw out the results on a shared map that encourages and inspires their architectural creativity.

The game uses a dice-based mechanics resolution system, inspired by Blades in the Dark, combined with a Jenga© tower and a few bottles of delicious beverages. At the end of the game the tower collapses and the story of the fortress has come to an end. Each player narrates and draws out the disastrous results on the shared map. There is no way to win this game. Losing is fun!

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.
