The Natural Philosophers

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

EARLY ACCESS GAME: Still in development, and if you purchase it now you'll get all the updates.

This is a non-violent, creative game in which you will imagine what an expedition of natural philosophers discover in an entirely new world. 

You'll fill up a notebook with observations, inspired by a range of random tables, to build the world you explore.

You'll need this PDF, some pens and notebooks, and a few regular six sided dice. There's no game master role, everyone takes an equal part in playing.

Hi ! Your game seems really cool. Can you tell us a little more how dices are rolled and why ?
Is it a competitive game ? A game about marvel and cooperative flow ?

Dice are mainly used for random prompts. It's not competitive. "Marvel and cooperative flow" captures the style very well, in fact. You will create facts about the world you explore as you go, building on each other's ideas.

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.
