The Missive

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $0.00

The Missive is a post-apocalyptic game of hope and rebuilding tempered by the limits of humanity and their best intentions.

The Chamber of Dreams will give humanity the opportunity to create a new world, a paradise that can provide the living space and natural resources that a recovering post-cataclysmic population desperately needs.

However, not everyone agrees that the chamber offers a way to a better life. The first explorers will need to create the Missive, a shared explanation of the simulacrum-world that will provide stability and order.

Intended as a beginner-friendly game that blends simple roleplaying game mechanics with many of the conceits of a storytelling game like Mafia/Werewolf. Intrigue is optional, but even with intrigue the general goal is still to create an interesting world rather than competing with other players.

The game will be free for the extent of the Coronavirus outbreak, then be adjusted to a $1 price, and was created for the Quarantine Game Jam on

Requirements: 3+ players, a single 10-sided die. Secret messaging mechanic intended for use with internet chat software, virtual tabletops, or text messages. Physical notes are also able to be used for in-person sessions.

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.
