Making History: Three One-Session RPGs


Three one-session RPGs, each with a full adventure, a simple rules set, and pregenerated characters!

Norse Ivory. 994 A.D. The PCs are Normans: descendants of Vikings who seized territory in France a century before. Now their duke has sent them north to the frozen land of their pagan ancestors. They will travel to the edge of the known world in the company of actual Norsemen who despise them for abandoning Norse religion and culture. A game about heritage and faith.

A Killing in Cahokia. 1100 A.D. The PCs are detectives in the medieval Native American temple-city of Cahokia. While investigating an unusual murder, they get tangled up in something much bigger. A game about who gets to decide what form a society should take, and what gets lost along the way.

Darken Ship. Modern day. The PCs are sailors in the United States Navy who awake to discover they’re alone on a vessel that should carry three thousand. Terror and mystery lurk in the dim red light of the ship’s passageways. Strange discoveries offer clues about what happened. And who knows? The PCs may even save the ship. May.

Each adventure is a single-session, standalone story grounded in the real world. The rules are super simple and keep the focus on the heart of the scenario. The pregenerated characters are complicated people with motivations that keep the story moving organically. Each game takes 3-4 hours to play and only an hour or two to prepare!

Live history. Make history.

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.
