Tiny Taverns

Selected Option:

Heart-Warming Fantasy!

The story you tell with Tiny Taverns is one of friendship, a group of former adventurers running a tavern together. This tavern happens to exist in a fantasy world, replete with monsters, magic and cheerfully-crafted menus (and hijinks!)

Using the rules in this book, you'll be able to play to tell new heartwarming stories in this slice-of-life inspired TinyD6 narrative RPG! It's a new storytelling game powered by an revised iteration of TinyD6, more akin to Fate or Powered by the Apocalypse, but still the same minimalist nature you love!

Character creation is simple, fast, and exciting. You pick your character archetype based on the exciting stories your Game Master is going to tell, you pick a few Traits that each grant a single benefit, and you're done!

As a group, you'll work to create the world you exist in, as well as identify the sort of tavern, home, inn, or other enterprise you've decided to support with your friends! This setting will be your groups, from the ground up!

Since I'm designing my own system (yet another one, but years in the making), I've read a lot of systems, yet this one is so straight forward and well written - its concept is plain fun and the maths are right !

Since I'm designing my own system (yet another one, but years in the making), I've read a lot of systems, yet this one is so straight forward and well written - its concept is plain fun but the maths are a bit odd.

Chance of success without Focus:
Disadvantage: 33% (-23%)
Normal: 56%
Advantage: 70% (+14%)

Chance of success with Focus:
Disadvantage: 50% (-25%)
Normal: 75%
Advantage: 87.5% (+12.5%)

So, I use a single d12 instead (+2 if Disadvantage, -2 if Advantage, -1 if Focused):

Disadvantage without focus 9+: 33%
Normal without focus 7+: 50%
Advantage without focus 5+: 67%

Disadvantage with focus 8+: 5/12 = 42%
Normal with focus 6+: 7/12 = 58%
Advantage with focus 4+: 9/12 = 75%

And complication is on ones!

Two questions:
1. Does a GM screen PDF exist for this game, either for download or purchase?
2. If I bought the pdf here on DriveThruRPG, can I "upgrade" to a softcover printed edition for the price difference + shipping, or am I outta luck?

There is not a GM screen, but we can upgrade you if you'd like! It's a manual process but if you email shipping AT gallantknightgames DOT com, we can sort you out.

I participated to the KS but if I want a hardcover copy I have to pay like others. Why?

Hi Gianfranco!

If your Kickstarter pledge entitled you to an at-cost copy, and you didn't get it, we can sort you out. Just email! Just remember that the at cost copy requires you pay printing and shipping costs (like it said on the Kickstarter page.)

If you only pledged for a PDF, then you'd have to buy a copy as normal.

I had a quick wording question but wasn't sure where to ask it-- on page 90, under the Healer trait, it says to make a Test that "If successful, that character heals a minor injury. If it fails, they merely heal." I'm assuming this is a mistake? What is this supposed to mean?

Good catch! That second sentence, "If it fails, they merely heal," is an error. It is leftover from a previous version of the book, and it seems it didn't get removed from the final iteration. It should be ignored.

My apologies for that typo. I hope it didn't cause an inconvenience.

Not at all! Thanks for the reply! Hopefully you can fix it in a future update.

How much different?

I mean, can I pick up one (or more) of the Heritages or new Traits and toss them into my Tiny Dungeons game?

I had to read through the sample until page 7 to get a summary of the game's premise. Maybe you should put that first sentence in your product description? Lead with it, even.

"The story of our game is about a group of friends who run a tavern or other hospitality establishment together."

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.
