Watermarked PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

Genial Jack is a serialized setting of nautical weirdness and whimsy – horrors and wonders from the deep, mysterious isles, absurd pirates, surreal monsters, sentient storms, and, of course, a whale the size of a mountain. Each volume will reveal some aspect of the bizarre seascape traversed by Genial Jack, beginning with an account of Jackburg itself – the ramshackle, symbiotic city built atop and within the beneficent Godwhale.

Within the first volume you’ll find:

  • 12 playable species, the chief denizens of Jackburg.
  • A gazetteer of the myriad districts of Outer and Inner Jackburg
  • Descriptions of the government, laws, and criminal organizations of the town
  • Jackburg slang
  • 20 quick NPCs
  • A centerfold map (in the PDF only)

Inspired by the likes of Gulliver’s Travels, Tales of Baron Munchausen, and New Weird urban fantasy, Genial Jack is written for 5th edition but easily adaptable to any fantasy tabletop game.

Page 27 of the PDF (The Roost) is totally blank. Can this get fixed?
There's also a typo on page 24: "priates".
Otherwise good stuff!

Thanks for the typo notification.

Page 27 is blank on purpose, when printed is the back of the removable centrefold. Page numbering resumes with page 27 after the centrefold

OBS does not make staple bound lay flat in A4, so not here. If you want a print copy, go to and click on store.

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.
