Ruby Radiance

Watermarked PDF

You love Critical Role, you laugh at The Adventure Zone; or you never listened to any actual play show or stream, but you keep hearing about this game of Dragons and Dungeons on the grapevine and Netflix.

This game seems super-fun and enables good banter and drama. You want to try that!

You do some googling, and find out they are asking you 30 bucks for an intro kit? And it is a limited item? And if you then get one, they expect you have to drop another 100 on three books and dice and what not? And seriously, you need to read all that before you try that? Come on, you don't even know if you like to play roleplaying games! You just want to try it.

I wrote this game for you.

Ruby Radiance was designed to be an entry point for newcomers, your gateway into roleplaying. It is meant to be accessible, low-commitment, and easy to learn. It is not meant to emulate any Hasbro product or the trappings of OSR; instead, it focuses on the modern podcasting and streaming media. We know you come into the hobby with certain expectations and this game was designed to provide those.

Every element of Ruby Radiance has been adjusted to bring the same exactly type of drama and hijinks you may have enjoyed in other media. T

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.
