Cosmic Cutthroats RPG

Watermarked PDF

Cosmic Cutthroats is a roleplaying game of adventure and exploration through endless worlds. Your scavengers, exiles, and freeloaders can come from any place, any time, fighting tyranny and seeking new highs through unimaginable realms!

  • Task resolution is 2d12 roll high ... simple! Gameplay is fast and cinematic, with narrative Triumphs and Mishaps when the dice match! ... the same mechanic that powers our other RPG, Metagene!
  • Point-based medium-crunch character creation! Costs scale up gradually, helps enforce game balance!
  • Supports a wide variety of character power levels! Be a pathetic Incompetent, or a virtually unstoppable Cosmic Herald!
  • Simple NPC creation and random dimension and settlement tables helps you get going faster!
  • Setting material on the interdimensional metropolis Uru Ulan! A strange city strewn throughout the rings of Saturn, founded millennia ago by an immortal Sumerian sorcerer! A wild, weird patchwork of many eras and worlds!
  • Rules on different genres in new and exciting dimensions! Supers, horror, space opera, anime, post-apocalypse ... anything!
  • Quality roleplaying is rewarded with Edge (AKA "hero points"), providing a system ripe for intrigue and drama!
  • Optional rules for random character creation, for when you don't know what you want! Optional rules for character point debt, when you do know but you need more points!
  • Cover art by Juan Ochoa! Interior art by Gennifer Bone, Khairul Hisham, Bradley K. McDevitt, James V. West, Emily Vitori!

Yeah, I've already contacted DriveThruRPG support about that. Hopefully they don't take too much longer to get back to me.

Here's an alternative. It's also the first 20 pages of the PDF. Thanks!

Does this have a random dimensional generator?
Customer avatar
Joshua K June 08, 2020 10:13 am UTC
Yes. As stated, there are tables to quickly generate new dimensions, and new settlements in those dimensions.

I will add, the dimension generation tables aren't meant to be exhaustive, they're mainly a springboard for ideas.

They consist of a table to give you a genre or major theme for the realm, a table for the local settlement, a table determining what human culture (if any) the locals might be from, and finally one for some local trouble for the PCs to solve.

I didn't want to reinvent the wheel, as there are already some good dimension generation products out there, like 'Kefitzat Haderech - Incunabulum Of The Uncanny Gates And Portals', or the 'Castle Oldskull' products (check 'em out!).

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.
