The Totality of Ygg

The Totality of Ygg

Suggested Price $0.00

Just outside the center of a lenticular galaxy a gas giant spins slowly around a dying star, holding five moons in its embrace.  The natives of one of these moons have named their world Acheron, and their civilizations have risen and fallen for tens of thousands of years in the porphyry shadow of this Goliath.  They worship a multitude of gods and debauch themselves in the ruins of their ancestors; outside the walls of their cities savagery abounds, and great treasures lie buried beneath the wreckage of time.  Do you and your Band have what it takes to wrest these riches from the wastelands, or will you join the multitudes that lie beneath the rotting stones?

The Totality of Ygg is an OSR rules variant - "Dungeon Master" friendly, medium "crunch", old school feel - and always free.

I'd definitely like to do it. Right now I've got about 500 people who have downloaded the rules, I feel like if I can get to ... I dunno, 2000 or so ... that I'll do a print version. The artist who did the front cover said they're available for more work, so I was hoping on doing a Kickstarter with 100% of the proceeds going towards art and whatever it costs to get printing off the ground.

This is a long way around me saying "if you like the game, tell your friends" :-) I'm working hard on the Atlas right now and I'm hoping to have that done in the next few months, so please stay tuned. And thanks for your support!

Quick question, are character sheets available for this game? The site you set up for ToY has links for them but they are all in your Gdocs trash so they can't be downloaded

Hiya! The only character sheets I have are for Roll20 - I ended up binning the PDF sheets I made for the beta and neglected to update the site (my bad).

Give me a few days and I'll pull them back together and put them on my site. I'll update you as soon as they're there.

OK - those should be all set, I pulled them out of the trash and cleaned them up a bit. You can get the sheets at

You'll need to print out the "Base" character sheet 2-sided, and there's a third sheet for your Trope (Knave, Sellsword, Philosopher, or Mystic) or Species (Pooka, Murk, Spriggan, or Night Child). If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks again for the review and for trying out my game!

I have been playing the beta of this game with the crew for months now. Its well thought out and tons of fun. The rules get 'out of the way' so the story can flow.
Love it. Excellent.

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.
