NUGGET is a trimmed-down version of the LODE system found in Silver Branch products, cramming a basic set of RPG rules into just 2 pages. It's a tool for introducing people to roleplaying games, putting a game together in a hurry, or those times when you just can't be bothered with long, complicated rules.

Obviously there's not enough room to cover a particular style/genre really well, but it's enough to play simple games where characters are basically normal people, perhaps with special skills - horror, crime, low fantasy, science fiction, monster collecting or whatever.

It's easy to carry around, adaptable and simple to explain, while introducing people to some common roleplaying concepts. You just need pencils, paper and a pool of six-sided dice.

Self-contained mini-games built around a pared-down ruleset.

I have used this system almost exclusively for games I have run at conventions. I've used NUGGET for: An H. G. Wells inspired game where Players got to be Invisible People, Beast People, Time Travelers etc, The Doom Patrol, a game where players were 1940's Private Eyes who were secretly the Champions of the Greek Gods, a game where the players were Fantasy Icons such as Peter Pan, Aladdin, Alice from Through the Looking Glass and others. All in all, it's a remarkably simple yet versatile system.

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.
