QUICK! Let's play a horror game!

A rules lite system for those who want to run a survival horror scenario in a pinch.

SQUISHY! is good to run for:

• Players who want a challenging game experience with minimal number-crunching 

• TTRPG newbies and veterans alike 

• Larger groups of players who don’t want to spend ages statting out a character sheet

This is a d10 system and it’s designed to get you from zero to scary in no time flat! The most important part of this system is the super quick character creation, and everything beyond that is just a bunch of suggestions on how to flesh out your games, including 3 random tables for:

• Exploring a Mystery Shrouded Town

• Exploring a Sinister Manor  

 • Exploring Oppressive Underground Tunnels

Hi! Just bought SQUISHY and it looks interesting. Some things have jumped out already:

1) Why is the Stray for a "Sh**" category stat 20% and the Base is 15%? Shouldn't the Stray always be LOWER than the Base? It is for every other category. I would have expected it to be 10%, but perhaps I am misunderstanding.
2) Do players write an "especially good or especially bad" example next to EACH of their main stats? Or just choose one "especially good" example and one "especially bad" example? I am finding the wording in this section a little confusing.
3)I'm guessing when you say the Stay Alive Money/Luck can be used to pass failed rolls, you just pay the difference between a pass and failed roll right?

Hi there!
1. The sh it stat is the opposite because your stray is what you aren't especially bad at. It's in reverse because it's dealing with what you're terrible at as opposed to being good at. Feel free to ignore that and reverse it if you don't like it.
2. Yes it's for each stat. This is to solidify what range of actions each stat is related to, for example if someone had a good Survival stat, and specified that it was specifically related to them being good at running, if they wanted to run away from a monster, they would roll especially good on their survival role. You could also use this to have weapon specialties.
3. Yes you're absolutely correct there.

I made a blog post on going into a full explanation of how the stat table works.

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.
