Knave+Troika Inventory for All: an Optional Rule

Knave+Troika Inventory for All: an Optional Rule


This  is an inventory system that combines the best features from those of about four different games (most famous among them, Troika and Knave) and an uncertain number of blog-posts, to create a system that

  • works with the game that you already play (assuming that that game has Strength, Dexterity, and HP in roughly their normal ranges for D&D or OSR)
  • provides interesting choices in play
  • makes multiple elements of play impact on inventory management
  • is fairly realistic
  • is simple to use and simple to learn

It reduces inventory down to a slot system, rather than a weight one, makes over-encumbrance much simpler, and makes dexterity important for getting items out during combat. Additionally, it simplifies rules for armor penalties, and gives the injury and exhaustion represented by the loss of HP an impact on how much you can efficiently carry. 

(While this is inspired by Troika, it is not compatible with it without some hacking)

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.
