My daughter, a new GM, has outlined her idea of a campaign for D&D and in that discussion, I realized she was describing a Post-Apoc world. Thus, I began searching for source material to help her. I came across this product and I'm curious how many pages of content is in the product?

I just bought the pdf and the character sheet that comes with it appears to be for a different game. The printer friendly one is correct but I am no friend to printers.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that the preview is just half of a character sheet...

Found an error on page 61:

"A target with total cover can’t be targeted directly
by an attack or a spell, although some spells can
reach such a target by including it in an area of
effect. A target has total cover if it is completely
concealed by an obstacle."

Don't think you intended to have spell in there.

Page 55 Spell mentioned again.

Saving Throws
A saving throw—also called a save—represents
an attempt to resist a spell, a trap, a poison, a
disease, or a similar threat. You don’t normally
decide to make a saving throw; you are forced to
make one because your character or monster is
at risk of harm.

You can reach out to them on their discord and see if anyone would be interested, unfortunately it is not my skill set to do so.

SO most of the members of my play group prefer to fill in character sheets on PCs since we are all rather terrible at hand writing and we uses less paper that way so what I'm trying to ask is there plans to create a form fillable version of the Character sheets

The description says that the world was invaded by another dimension...do they show up in the game or are they just a tool to create the collapse?

Hi FeralGamersInc, I got an email for Stranded and it looks like it a D100 system. Do you or will you have other rules systems available? Thanks

I got an email to buy the Stranded (sci-fi) PDF early and on the page it looks like it uses a D100 system. I wanted to know if there are other rules systems available besides D100. Thanks

Hey every even page is off centered, it is showing a white lip on the right of the page. Don't know if that is a edit flaw or intentional or not.

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.
