Outré Realms: A Roleplaying Game of Weird Adventure

Watermarked PDF

Outré Realms is a basic fantasy roleplaying game of weird adventure. It utilizes the dead simple FIST System, aptly named for the first letter of each stat that defines characters.

At its core, Outré Realms is really just a hack of the Original Fantasy Roleplaying Game. It may not look like that at first blush, but I swear that it is.

The most familiar classes of that game are represented here, the fundamentals of combat come from that game, as do the rules for healing damage. Everything else is built upon this tried and true foundation with some of my own innovations and some inspiration from hobby legends such as Dave Arneson. 

Whether you're a player, a referee, or another publisher, you can use this open-licensed, DIY, old school game to spark your own imagination (ALL of the rules text is released under a Creative Commons license).

Or second blush. And third. And so on.
Buyer beware.

The four most familiar classes of OD&D (1974) are present (they're just re-named as traits/attributes), all damage defaults to 1d6 (also per OD&D), and the rules for healing damage are *almost* word for word as they exist in OD&D. Other stuff is notably different, granted, but nothing that I represented in the description of this product is false or untrue. It's not a clone, and I didn't claim that it was. It's a hack. These are two different things. If you were expecting a clone, I'm sorry. This isn't that thing. But, again, I never claimed that it was. Also, did you actually buy my game? I notice that you're not a verified purchaser (and this is the only place it is legally available). Buyer beware, indeed.

I was under a great deal of stress when I wrote the above. Damage does NOT default to 1d6 (rather it defaults to one point of damage).

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.
