Grave is a toolkit for soulslike fantasy TTRPG play built on the rules for Knave It's a short document with just enough material to make undead characters to run through existing old-school adventures published over the years. Adaptations to Knave include…

  • Ready-made "backgrounds" with starting stat arrays and gear packages, including Knight, Wizard, Witch, Outcast, and the wholly random Vagabond
  • Simple stamina rules based on inventory allotment, for more involved stunts and more frequent spell use
  • Death, resurrection, and corruption rules based on the assumption that you will die quite a bit, and you might want to risk devouring the souls of legendary kings
  • 60 level-less spells in Wizardry, Witchcraft, and Theurgy
  • 50 magic items like the Ring of the Wily Serpent, Jade Pig, Waxen Hand, and Pendant

Like Knave, Grave is available as both a PDF and as a Microsoft Word document made with free fonts, making it easier to hack for your own purposes.

Hi! Uh, what is 'soulslike?'

It means its thematically or mechanically "like" FromSoftware's "Dark Souls" video games.

Games emulating the style and feel of Dark Souls. Typical features include gloomy atmosphere, lethal playstyle, far more story and background implied rather than being directly told, and rolling around more than walking.

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.
