ARC: Doom Tabletop RPG - Free Preview


Doom draws near but that doesn't mean you can't rebel against the dying light! ARC is a role-playing game for players who want to embark on perilous adventure, surmount impossible odds, and emerge as heroes that defeat the apocalypse before precious time runs out. Inspired by OSR, ARC is light on rules but heavy on the tension. Can you make it out alive before the end?


As a real-time Doomsday Clock slowly ticks to its end, heroes must fight their way to salvation through Skill Checks, physical or psychosocial conflict, as well as strange Spells and Techniques. Highlights include:

  • Manage your hours. Dictate how much time you'll spend per session. Tackle dreadful Omens while you grapple with what little time you have left.
  • Celebrate player ingenuity. Don't just use Skills --- articulate your specific problem-solving Approach: whether creatively, carefully, or in a concerted manner.
  • Strategic player-driven combat. Conflict initiative is based on what you do, not through a roll. Strategize with your allies on how to time and sequence your actions.
  • A new approach to Spellcasting. Spells and Techniques sit in your inventory, and impose odd rituals to refresh them. One in particular asks your hero to eat a door!


This preview contains the Introduction and Chapter One of ARC, which helps you set up the Doom of your story. Stay tuned for a release date for the full book!

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.
