Tales of the Vert Valliant, Treachery of Tortennsen

These are the continuing “Tales of the Vert Valliant,” the current Crimson Cutlass Campaign run by the game’s creator. Crimson Cutlass is a game of exploration and piracy using simple dice rolls to resolve action, and innovative mechanics, based off flips from a Tarot deck, to generate the stories and situations. The game is set in a fictional world, not our own (hence the spelling of “Valliant”)

Less of an “Example of Play” than the prior “Tales of the Vert Valliant” pamphlets, Book Three (and future volumes) are more of a “serialized novel,” based on the missions as played. Some Campaign Notes, maps, and player’s chatter on the forum are included for context.

Presented are the stories for roughly a dozen game sessions. Join the Vert Valliant as they circumnavigate the globe, unearth treason in the Court of France, suffer their most crushing defeat to date under the hooves of an invading army, and thrill as one man, cruelly wronged, obtains his just revenge with the help of his true friends

The depth of storytelling that can be generated using Better Game’s Mission Generation and Encounters rules is surprising and inspiring. Enjoy these Tales, drawn directly from the gameplay of Crimson Cutlass!

Product Information
File Size:
1.04 MB
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.
