Rod, Reel, & Fist

Watermarked PDF

A village stricken by tragedy. A group of plucky young fishers. An ancient region, reclaimed by nature, and the wish-granting fish that waits at the heart of it.

Welcome to Rod, Reel, & Fist.

  • A Fishing RPG?! Possibly the first of its kind, Rod, Reel, & Fist is a fishing adventure tabletop roleplaying game. Players take on the roles of heroic fishers trying to save their village by making a truly legendary catch.
  • Everyone Can Play: Rod, Reel, & Fist is suitable for all ages, and its dice system makes all failures into temporary setbacks. At the same time, it's built to scale up and provide a challenge for seasoned gamers, and it comes with a host of alternate settings that reflavor the game as a space opera, cyberpunk adventure, or a martial arts odyssey.
  • Simple But Deep: Catch fish and ward off hostile animals using a "rock, paper, scissors, dice" combat system that relies on clever resource management, reading your opponent, weighing risk versus reward, and knowing when to step back and let your teammates help.
  • Build Your World: Easy-to-follow rules help you to design your own setting---either by yourself or collaboratively with your friends.
  • Endless Adventure: The book comes with six scenarios, including an introductory sandbox, a tournament, a fishing journey, a timeloop, and a tower defense minigame where the players protect their town against hundreds of eels. Also included is the roguelike Legacy Mode, which expands the game by adding an evolving adventuring region to which the players must return multiple times in order to fully conquer it.
  • Beach Episode Compatible: Splice Rod, Reel, & Fist into your current campaign for a light-hearted sidequest or a hot-blooded mini tournament arc.

This sounds suprisingly interesting but could there possibly be a preview made available?

All set! It's currently set to preview the first 35 pages, but if you'd like to see more of it or if you have any questions, let me know. I can either expand the preview or make sure they're answered on the page.

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.
