In space, nobody can hear you... Play more than a dozen amazing games by a co-op design studio full of some of the freshest and weirdest voices in RPGs!

The short games digest is the first project of the San Jenaro Co-op. With over 11 full fantastic games, the Short Games Digest hits an eclectic mix of stories and settings. Lovelorn Knights, dice-playing gods, retro future space operas, dreams of dead gods we've got it all!

Each game is completely self-contained and ready to play immediately with nothing but the digest.

• In Yesterday’s Tomorrow, Today!, immerse yourself in fast-paced rockabilly space opera.

• In Clerics, play a cleric who gets NO RESPECT in an utterly inept party of adventurers.

• In Lonely Knights, play handsome young pages wooing the Knights of the Round Table with manly feats of manly manliness!

• In The Gods Play Dice, you are gambling deities whose stakes are their world.

• In The Great Instrument, play the descendants of heroes driving back demons and reclaiming the world-shaping mecha they live in.

• And so many more!

Any chance of this getting released PoD as an actual digest sized anthology?

Yes! In fact, if you pick it up, we'll give you a coupon code for the POD once it goes live. Don't quote me on this, but it should be about $5, give or take. We've just got to shore up the POD files before we make it live.

I don't know if you saw, but we just released this in physical form! You can get it right now. If you bought it digitally, you should have access to an at-cost coupon. If you don't, message the publisher, and he'll hit you up.

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.
