$9.99

Terror! Suspense! You will not believe the dangers in store for your intrepid heroes! Will they discover ancient secrets, lost civilizations, or priceless treasure? Will they escape treacherous villains, evil super powers, or deathly traps?

Temples & Tombs is a roleplaying game devoted to creating the fast-paced adventures popularized in pulp magazines that led to films like Raiders of the Lost ArkThe Mummy (1999), and Romancing the Stone

Built on the Year Zero Engine system, the framework that drives Free League's games such as Tales from the Loop and Mutant Year ZeroTemples & Tombs is adapted to fit the two-fisted adventure pulp genre in several key ways.

  • Custom skills and talents engineered for a fast-paced and adventurous setting
  • Luck mechanic that provides more dice for added chances of success, but with a chance to "run out of luck"
  • Hero mechanic for additional chances to succeed
  • Condition-based consequences so that heroes never die (but may be on the run)
  • A scene structure that helps guide play to emulate your favorite action/adventure story

Beyond that, the game looks and feels like you'd expect YZ0 to feel. And if you've never played in this system, you're in for a treat. Very easy learning curve, fast-paced game play, and just enough crunch to keep things interesting.

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.
