The Pack

Watermarked PDF

On the first day of every hundredth year...

Magic, The Pack, and The Snarl return to the realm of mortals. “We are The Pack,” says an authority that speaks to every living creature. “If your Heart is ready you can enter The Snarl. If your Will is strong you can reach its end. If you are First, we will reward you with your greatest desire. Come find us.” On the first day of the next year, all of that disappears for another 99 years.

Once you have entered The Snarl there is no leaving unless you reach the end. Even if you are not First, you can still return home with the experiences you gained inside. If you die or do not make it out before year’s end, you will disappear along with The Pack and The Snarl, destined to be forgotten.

The Pack is a GMless Forged In The Dark game about exploring a shifting labyrinth where you must rely on your Will and your gear.

The player characters have two resources their Will (equivalent to Stress) and gear (a combination of Harm and Load). They use gear in place of actions to decide how many dice are rolled, while Position and Effect are decided by the group. Chosen use these resources to overcome Obstacles in the Snarl, and once they've overcome enough of them they reach the next Area. As they need to recover spent resources they can Rest (downtime equivalent) whenever they want, but that advances the Rival clock. Getting through all the Areas intact gets you to the end of the Snarl giving you the "good end," but only if you beat the Rival clock to get there.

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.
