Microtransaction: The RPG

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

Are you a GM who feels like they deserve something more out of the game? Then get ready to become wealthy beyond your wildest dreams!* With the Microtransaction system and its revolutionary d$ "dice" you can now make all sorts of money off of your players! The first page in the rules for this system can be grafted into any OSR or 5E game, allowing you to raise the stakes for your players and to bring in cash for yourself, just like big-name video game studios do!

Besides the universal section at the front of this supplement, there is a fully-functioning, streamlined game system in the book. It takes a lot of inspiration from The Black Hack. If you can believe it, the rules in this system are even simpler than in Black Hack, and fit completely within six pages of text.

We're going to be supporting this game with new content and ways for you to exploit, er, make more content for your players.

This is a Pay-What-You-Want title. If you're broke, or whatever, feel free to download the game for no cost. If you're able, I would appreciate a tip.

*Any claims that you can get rich playing or running RPGs are clearly bald-faced lies told to amuse the author.

The preview mentions a dP. I'm assuming this is what remains of the penny rules before it was determined that pennies are awful.

Hilarious system, though like you said it might be hard, morally, to sell to ones gaming group.

Your international rules are missing € so here is my suggestion:
5, 10 and 20 cent coins used instead of $ currency with 1€ coins conferring some special bonus, what kind of special I have no idea.

Of course, the Euro! I'd probably do something about getting equipment. I had a thought about producing something that gives bonuses for using old currency, like Soviet coins and such.

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.
