The Magical Land of Yeld (we just call it Yeld for short) is  a multi-session role playing game focusing on adventures, hero building and shared storytelling. Like the classic console games we love, adventures in Yeld are designed to allow you to explore colorful and strange lands, seek out secret dungeons and temples and challenge powerful boss monsters as your characters grow to unlock new skills and discover more powerful weapons and treasure. Mermaid Hunters is your starting point for adventures in Yeld!

Creating Characters: In Mermaid Hunters your characters start as normal children, called Friends. Each Friend is between the age of 7 and 12, and each Friend Type (like Liar, Know it all or Brat) has a different set of capabilities and personality traits. Once you move beyond Mermaid Hunters and start to explore the full Yeld RPG (available on DrivethruRPG too!) you’ll get to take on Heroic Jobs like Witch, Soul Thief and Oathbreaker. These Jobs will give you powerful abilities that allow you to face down dangerous monsters and take on difficult adventures. As you explore Yeld you may decide to switch Jobs, taking some of what you learned from your last Job to your new Job. You may even go on special quests to learn powerful Advanced Jobs like Vampire Hunter and Drudge Angel! Or you may be doomed to take on a Monster Job like Deep Mage and Serpent Oracle!


Building Adventures: Our adventures in Yeld are a story that we create and tell together. In each session of Yeld the Game Master will guide players through a story. If you’ve played an RPG before you know how this works, but since the Mermaid Hunters set is designed for new players we've made sure to show you exactly how to make fun adventures! Our goal will be to work together to tell a story that we’ve all had a hand in creating, and we’ll discover that our adventures are more fun and more challenging because they’re stories we’ve created together. Here's an example of how to build a typical Yeld adventure:

Fights: You may have noticed that adventures in Yeld sound a little bit like video games like Final Fantasy or Legend of Zelda. Fights in Yeld take inspiration from classic fantasy video games to provide deep turn based, team based action! In Yeld we’ll win fights with teamwork, and every character will get a chance to shine! Here's the basics rules for fights:


Plenty of Monsters... Yeld is full of strange and creepy creatures. Not everything you meet in Yeld wants to eat you (there are some very nice Monsters!), but Vampires, Fairy Soldiers, Mermaid thieves, Toothfacers, Tunnel Mummies, Serpent Oracles, Scuba Snakes and all kinds of horrible stuff are lurking around every corner and in every cave, and their favorite prey is young Heroes! In Mermaid Hunters you'll be facing a wicked Mermaid Gang led by a spell casting Mermaid Boss, as well as Scuba Snakes, Zombie Mermaids and even a Werewolf! The Magical Land of Yeld rule book is also full of weird and scary Monsters that you can meet, fight or even make friends with! 

Lots of comics! We like to present our rules visually. While Mermaid Hunters features a full comprehensive game text it also has lots of instructional comics to help make learning the rules simple and easy! Plus, comics are fun!

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.
