The ultimate introduction to diceless role-playing is now available on RPGNow!

Basic SDL takes the new revolution in role-playing to the next level, distilling the popular System DLTM ruleset into one page. Gamemasters can easily use Basic SDL to introduce skeptical players to the SDL ruleset, providing them with character creation, a simplified "How Things Work" section, and everything else necessary to begin a full-featured role-playing session.

Once players have a few games of Basic SDL under their belts, they can easily graduate up to the far more robust System DLTM Player's Handbook and Field Guide, also available right here.

What're you waiting for? Take your first step into a larger world with Basic SDL.

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.
