Enchiridion of the Computarchs

Selected Option:

The cabalistic and powerful Computarchs built the WorldNet, governed its growth, established its laws and conventions, and seemingly retired from their world altering creation. They left their tools and programs scattered throughout the vast network. Some have been found by seekers such as yourself and have been passed down from generation to generation. Collectively these pieces of software are known as Enchiridion of the Computarchs.

Enchiridion of the Computarchs gives you a boost developing and using casting mechanics and concepts in high-tech settings. This book encompasses a range of material concerning computers and programs for “techno-casters” (e,g., MCC shaman class, or those classes found in Cyber Sprawl Classics, Crawljammer, Umerica, Terror of the Stratosfiend, Star Crawl, and more). You will not only find a collection of spells (aka. programs) in this book but also a new d24 spellburn table, new mechanics for spell failure, and a brief corruption table all couched in a high-technobabble style for your 
post-apocalyptic, far-future, and dystopian-future DCC RPG compatible campaigns.

Try before you buy: Preview of Enchiridion of the Computarchs

Enchiridion of the Computarchs is a casting supplement for Mutant Crawl Classics and Dungeon Crawl Classics RPGs. However, programs can easily be broken down into smaller single use effects that allow for expanded computer based play in systems like Cyberpunk, Gamma World, and more. Three appendices assist with creating random system errors, techno-acronyms, and Intrusion Countermeasure Entities or ICE (cybermonsters).

Return to the glory days of science fiction gaming with the Mutant Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. Adventure like it’s 1978 again, with modern rules grounded in the origins of post-apocalyptic role playing. Fast play, a mysterious future, and 100% compatibility with the DCC RPG system await you — just activate your artifact…

I noticed that description of the 3rd level wetware programmed called Antimatter Explosion has the same description as the program before it "sprite." It is the same in the print version and 3 versions of the pdf.

Could we please have a preview of the TOC? It would be nice to read the spell names and see how many pages are devoted to each subject (spells, other tables).

And when might this be in print?

Awesome! Thank you!

And after skimming, it looks like it will fill a gap for Gamma World/Mutant Future as well as the DCC games you wrote it for. Even more awesome.

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.
