VIRUS the Fantasy Micro-RPG


VIRUS is a Dark Fantasy role-playing game centered around plague and virus themes.  Character creation and combat is simple to focus more on the story.  The Storyteller centers adventures around delivering antidotes, healing sick villagers, stopping magical curses, killing ravaging plague beasts, discovering cures, etc.  All you need for this role-playing game in terms of dice is six-sided dice.  This book has everything you need to get started in terms of rules.  This RPG is best suited for 4-5 players and one Storyteller.  Perfect for one-off adventures at conventions or getting new people into the fantasy RPG hobby.  An Open License is given at the book so you can make (and sell) derivative works from this book.  Every time this book sells, $3 of the sale will go to one of the COVID-19 charities listed at the back of the book.  Why pay $50-150 to get into a RPG, when you can do it for less than $10?

July 2020 Update - For FREE RPG Day I have created new upgraded maps of the western half of the Corovia continent.  They are included with this sale of the rulebook.

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.
