B.Y.O. Dungeon Rules

B.Y.O. Dungeon Rules

Watermarked PDF

Do you want to get your adventure in quickly? B.Y.O. Dungeon helps you do just that. A hack of the Toika RPG by Daniel Sell, BYOD distills that game for even leaner, faster performance. Character generation takes a few minutes, and combat gets resolved without the table getting bogged down in tactical minutiae.

Like Troika, BYOD is inspired by the classic RPG gamebooks of the 80's and 90's. If you've played the most popular series from that era, you can play BYOD.

And to support gamebook and DIY culture, we're supporting BYOD Rules with a line of fillable chapbooks that allow you to create your own group module, or even a solo gamebook for you to enjoy on your own and share with friends.

For more information about how the system works, you can check our blog, We're going tto be updating it regularly with new FREE content, hacks, guides, and more!

B.Y.O. Dungeon is an independent production by Thunderegg Productions and is not affiliated with the Melsonian Arts Council. That said, many thanks to Daniel Sell for making Troika! available.

I'm taking that as a no. That's really too bad, there was a lot of potential here.

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.
