WHAT IS SHIVER?

Nominated Best RPG - UK Games Expo 2022

SHIVER is a tabletop roleplaying gxame bringing tales of the mysterious, the peculiar and the strange to life. An easy to learn and innovative game system inspired by a love of horror films and pulp TV shows that brings storytelling to the fore. Shiver makes it simple for you to tell the stories you want to tell, however weird and wonderful they may be.

Take on the role of archetypal characters from any story, time, and place to uncover the dark truths that lurk in the shadows of the world. Unmask the villains, go boldly into the unknown… and while you’re at it, try not to die.

  • 224 Full Colour pages jammed packed with illustration.
  • Highly detailed character creation for any setting.
  • Monsters and enemies galore to slay or do some slaying.
  • Full Doom Clock rules to keep your story moving and raise that tension.
  • Thought death was the end of your story? Think again and get haunting.
  • Full rules for both Players and Directors (Game Masters).
  • A suite of weapons and items from the generic to the esoteric.

Is there a place to purchase a revised version of the director's screen? It has a few typos on it. Most notablly the large 'Inteeligent' on the right fold.

What do you think if a Director send the players the whole core book so they can read more bout the archetypes for example without the GM?
Do you appreciate that or shall the players maybe spend money by themselves? i mean its not expensive so that wouldnt be any problem its more a question of curiousity.

I would love a print copy as well. I was hoping it was available in light of the Kickstarter for the new stuff but I guess that is not the case right now. :(

If you get a character sheet made on roll20 so I can play it there, I'll buy every product you sell.

We're hoping to have it on general sale by the end of 2021 but we are experiencing some COVID related delays currently.

Format

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.
