“Several weeks ago, the dead rose from their graves, hungering for human flesh. Those they infected died within hours—and all deceased victims returned within minutes as new zombies. The city fell to the undead in a matter of days, with the survivors ruthlessly hunted down by shambling hordes.

Those who escaped the initial viral outbreak went into hiding, banding together for safety. But with dwindling resources and no sign of outside help, the city is rapidly becoming a mausoleum. Worse still, there are rumors of new viral strains, zombies that have mutated into even more dangerous forms.

You are a small band of survivors, attempting to escape the city before it’s too late. But the journey is fraught with danger, and the odds are stacked heavily against you...”

Inspired by popular zombie movies and TV shows, Rotten Odds is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

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.
