Once Best Friends

Once Best Friends


Some friendships end with words thrown across the room, flung like stones, meant to hurt and sever. But most friendships end because you drift apart. Not because you want to, necessarily, but you do. More than anything, this holds true for childhood friendships. One day, you wake up and realize that you have become a different person. And so has your best friend. You look at each other, and you know: Where just a few months ago, nothing could have come between the two of you, you are now worlds apart.

Did you take the first step, or did they? Did either of you try to stop it? Would it have mattered? Life went on, swallowed you up, and sent you off in different directions. And so, time went by.

One day, just by chance, you run into each other.  It is awkward at first. But then you talk.  About the good times, about the things that were not so good, and how, eventually, you grew apart.

Once Best Friends is a melancholic slice-of-life roleplaying game for two meant to be played as a one-shot. It needs very little preparation and focuses on improvised storytelling. One the following pages, you find guidance on how to run the game, memory prompts, and an empty glass jar you will fill with tokens of your shared childhood memories. Since you can work with as many memory prompts as you like, a session can last anywhere from one to three hours.

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.
