The Plebeian number 3

The Plebeian number 3


In this, issue 3 of The Plebeian, we are bringing you the preview, the so-called Fast Play of our minimalist OSR RPG system, The World of Zoa. The purpose of this system is to be an RPG that can be played either solo or in traditional mode with a GM and Players. We’ve already posted on DriveThru a lot of information about the world and lore of Zoa, and now we’re laying out the basics of the system for you to start playing and share your feedback with our team.


Zoa was developed with the beginning player in mind, and we are trying to rescue the old ideas of primordial RPGs, with the adoption of level 0 and an initial level cap up to 3. This was thought to make for a very exciting game,and will allow the Game Master and solo player to work the narrative, aided by a simple and robust system.

We really want players and GMs to send their opinions and ideas, because we want the system to reach the maximum number of players, and have a quick, simple and cheap option for good RPG games. The system will still have a link to our main Chronicles of Artrusia system (not yet released in English) and will allow both worlds to be played in one-shot adventures or in major campaigns. Have fun, and keep in touch with us! We will release a lot of cool things for Zoa and Oldschool RPGs.

In this issue, Sample Adventure for Zoa RPG: The Zoa Caverns.

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.
