Dungeons Without Love or Imagination

Suggested Price $1.00

In recent years, there have been a vast number of interesting, well-designed indie RPGs that have expanded the possibilities of the medium, through innovative settings and mechanics, all designed to help players express their imagination and creativity.

 This game is intended to put a stop to all that.

Dungeons Without Love or Imagination is a dungeon crawl stripped down to beyond the bare essentials. The goal is to run a hyper-efficient fantasy tabletop RPG unencumbered by vivid descriptions, whimsy, or even the most basic level of storytelling.

Classes, Races, and Backgrounds don't matter - all that matters are the only things a character can do - Stab, Steal, & Spell.

Creativity and storytelling are mechanically discouraged and penalized.

Instead of attractive maps and evocative room descriptions, DWLoI has a series of short alphanumeric codes to describe each location.

This game is not entirely serious.

All you need a GM, 2+ players, some six-sided dice, and a complete lack of imagination.

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.
