Catacombs & Chimeras


A fantasy RPG with a twist: in CnC, characters are made up of a selection of normal polyhedral dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, d12) that are rolled for all tests, but which dice characters are made from affects what they're good at.

Aside from that, we're aiming for classic fantasy, with an old-school feel, however possibly this may expand to cover other styles of game, depending on how things go with the project.

This game is currently in development, so feedback is appreciated. Any future revisions between now and the final version will be updated on here, so buying now will eventually get you the final version (no matter what price it ends up) plus all the playtest versions as they are released.

At the moment, here are the core rules and character creation. These will likely be expanded in the near future, along with planned additions of a bestiary and magic items.

C&C commonly refers to Castles & Crusades. Might want to rethink that anagram.

Hmm, good point.

While the rules aren't particularly D&D-like, I am kinda aiming for an OSR experience.

Maybe CnC?

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.
