Treasures & Traps: The Adventure Story Game


With this 28-page booklet, Treasures & Traps becomes a storytelling game set in the realm of Arb, a humorous fable and fantasy world. Here, everyone has a chance to add to the plot! Up to four players are in the role of Lead Characters who are called to a heroic—if not a totally whacked out—quest. One other player will be the Story Master, who plays the role of narrator, director, supporting cast, and every secondary character in the story. The Story Master is working with the Leads to experience the tale that unfolds. 

The Treasures & Traps cards are used as prompts to move the story forward and add creative spark, as well as to help determine the chance of success in the wild world of Arb. This addition to the world of Treasures & Traps is ideal for those learning role-playing games, those with limited time, or as a creativity prompt to evolve a story concept. So grab your Treasures & Traps cards, some friends, and a wild imagination, because everything else needed to enjoy an adventure is provided within! 

Included in this booklet: 

• Three Complete Adventures & Two Adventure Prompt Set-ups 

• Character Sheet 

• Easy How-to-Play rules 

• World Map of The Realm of Arb 

• People, places, and things of Arb

My son and I used to play Treasures and Traps all the time and he usually beat me. It was great fun! Are the Treasure and Traps cards going to be re-published through DriveThru cards or as a PDF here on DriveThru Rpg?

Yeah, excellent point, as mentioned above the cards help drive the game, so getting the T&T cards is essential! I dont think a PDF set would help much.

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.
