Don't Rest Your Head

Don't Rest Your Head

ZIP File

You can't sleep. It started like that for all of us, back when we were garden variety insomniacs. Maybe you had nightmares (God knows we all do now), or maybe you just had problems that wouldn't let you sleep. Hell, maybe you were just over-caffienated. But then something clicked.

That was when you took a long walk down the streets of the Mad City, stopped being a Sleeper, and started being Awake. But that click you heard wasn't from the secret world snapping into place. It was the sound of the Nightmares flicking off the safety and pointing a gun at your head.

They can smell you. The Paper Boys are closing in, and you'd better pray you don't become a headline. You're chum in the water, my friend, and it's time you got ready for it... before the clock chimes thirteen again. Now that you're one of us, there's just one simple rule left that must dominate your life.

Stay Awake. Don't Rest Your Head.

Don't Rest Your Head is a sleek, dangerous little game, where your players are all insomniac heroes with superpowers, fighting—and using—exhaustion and madness to stay alive and awake for just one more night in a reality gone way wrong called the Mad City. It features its own system, and is contained entirely within one book.

"Makes the Call of Cthulhu sanity death spiral look like a handful of baby asprin ... this game will tear open your skull and let the monsters in."

- Ken Hite, author of Nightmares of Mine

"Don't Rest Your Head is like the mutant love child of Dead Inside, Dogs in the Vineyard, Donjon, Lacuna, and Little Fears. It is utterly fantastic, and once I started reading it, I couldn't stop."

- Chad Underkoffler, author of Dead Inside and Truth and Justice

"It's like Lacuna and Dead Inside got in a fistfight for supremacy, and Don't Rest Your Head emerged."

- Andy Kitkowski, of the 24-Hour RPG Challenge

I read it through, and did a trial run with a friend of mine, we are both pretty new at this, so we found it really confusing. the dice mechanic was not really well explained nor how we introduce their powers. It made for a rather chaotic game play. Th [...]

Originally published at DRYH is a fascinating little indie game that really brings it's theme out with the mechanics of the system.  It's one of the first Indie games [...]

This product lays out a great game. Quick to set up, fun to play, and different from many dice-heavy games. It leaves rather a lot to chance, but that helps make the story. The layout could use some work, as certain important rules are tucked a [...]

Five dollars? Seriously? Buy this. Buy this now. It's easily worth 3-4 times that price. If you like more freeform roleplaying, if you like quirky horror in the vein of Coraline or the darker parts of The Phantom Tollbooth, if as a GM you enjoy te [...]

The book suffers from some bizarre organizational issues, not unlike someone who was working on little sleep suddenly remembering to discuss something a few pages after he had mentioned it. However, this is easily forgiven as the book includes oodles [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
