Teratos is a 3-5 participant storygame in the Essentials series, which tells of extraordinary creatures chorally built by all the players at the table, through stories narrated without the aid of the traditional figure of the Master in a crescendo of tensions built with few, immediate rules until the final Epilogue.

Its goal is to provide fast and functional, but above all simple tools, telling stories of solitude and persecution without any preparation or study: just read the rules quickly, following step by step the creation of setting, protagonists and antagonists of the story. Will the slow precipitate of the situation lead to the definitive defeat of the creature and its few allies, or to an unexpected final triumph? Only by playing you will discover the truth.

All you need are 6-sided dice, pencils and a copy of the Cards: each of the latter will portray a "Mask", a different role among those traditionally divided between players and Masters that will rotate between the participants to ensure that each one covers consecutively a different task in the economics of storytelling and an opposite point of view on the whole drama.

Ideal for quick one shots and medium-short games, Teratos offers you a simple and elegant way to generate stories of exclusion, loneliness, solidarity, despair and redemption.

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.
