PKD: Phiction-Knosis-Deth

Suggested Price $1.99

Phiction-Knosis-Deth is a rules-lite RPG of 1970s paranoid conspiracy and investigation. It contains a 5-page player's guide and a 5-page gamemaster's guide of brutally efficient rules designed to plunge players into a terrifying vortex of unstable reality as they take on the role of an out-of-their-depth average Dick or Jane called from their mundane life to serve as cosmic cannon fodder in a conflict they neither started nor fully understand.

P-K-D has been intentionally designed to accommodate both longer, investigative campaigns and  pick-up-and-play, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants RP sessions. The game uses a simple roll under 1d10 system, character creation is lightning-fast, and the game is sprinkled liberally throughout with helpful random tables for the gamemaster.

Along with a basic setting and rules system, P-K-D offers an exportable mechanic for creating and resolving the universe-melting paradoxes that can come with time-travel, overlapping realities, or world-altering magic. If you've ever wanted to drive the metaphysical laws of the universe insane right alongside your characters, P-K-D can help you do it.

So drop the needle on that Jefferson Airplane LP, pour yourself some funny-tasting Kool-Aid, and take a long, strange trip with P-K-D.

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.
