Chaoses Limb Players Guide

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.97

I first started working on Chaoses Limb because I wanted a ruleset to use for running old modules.  There were plenty of retro clones out there, but I have a copy of Holmes basic and was familiar with the rules so I decided to start there.  I already knew those rules were hard for new players to understand, but I figured the ruleset was small enough that it would be easy to edit, rewrite and clarify.  I rearranged the rules to make things easier to find. I moved all the rules we typically ignored during play into an “Optional Rules” section. I further streamlined where I could and tried to eliminate most of the inconsistencies.  Finally, I ended up adding a few of my own home rules or stealing rules I liked from other rulesets. Before I knew it, I had my own retro-clone on my hands.

And here it is.  Hope you enjoy it.

First Add On: a 1-sheet summarizing character generation instructions.  This something that you can hand out at the table at your first session.  Particularly handy if you have a rotating cast of players that show up for one shots.

Second Add On: I have disassembled and reorganized the rules so that the most important rules for each race/class are on their own double sided sheet.  These are useful as handouts at the table once a player has picked their race/class and includes a few additional optional rules as well as a 'standard kit' for equipment for each race/class.

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.
