Hi, great book. I have a question: what's the difference between Alchemist and doctor Alchemist? Doctor says you can create potions (I didn't understand if one or all potions from a school), and Alchemists can't? Thanks.

PUBLISHER
Good question! The thing that distinguishes a Doctor of Alchemy from an Alchemist is that they are masters of a particular School of Alchemy, which means that they have memorized the recipes for all six potions or draughts from that School. Those additional recipes are the added value you get with the Prestige Trait. Does that answer your question?

DTR pulled the book because their printer said the "ink saturation level...is not suitable for high-volume orders." So we've redone the interior layout and are redoing the cover as well. Then it's going to be a couple more weeks at least to review proofs, etc. But we should have softcovers available again by Valentine's. (Fingers crossed!)

For those who got a hard copy, did anyone have a defect on the inside back cover where a bunch of glue is smeared on the inside causing a ridge? Can something be done about this? Can it be swapped out without it costing me a ton in shipping? It may not seem like a big deal but if I was buying this book in a store I would not buy this copy due to the defect. I'm picky with my books.

To clarify, are you asking about the softcover physical book?

DTR customer service should be able to help you, so I would probably start by contacting them. But please let me know how that turns out. We want you to have a book you can be happy with on your shelf. (:

Sounds good. I will let you know. I want to be clear for others who might read this. I absolutely love this book. I have been looking forward to it for so long. If only I didn't have so much adulting stuff going on so I could run games to use all these ideas.

Is this title compatible with Knights of Underbed, a TinyD6 game? Asking because I don't want to buy it only to find that it's not.
Customer avatar
John P November 02, 2021 10:43 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
It should be compatible. But let’s break the book into its two component pieces and talk about each half separately.

The first half of Micronomicon talks about magical traits, including things like alchemist and beast speaker. Knights of underbed does not have all of the same magical traits as tiny dungeon, but it has most of them. And some of the ones it doesn’t have, like Sharman, seem like they could work if you wanted to use them.

The second half of the book, actually a little more than half, is a collection of 21 new magical micro settings. Here, I think you will have less overlap because most of these are intended for humans and elves and what not. But some of them, like the gingerbread Joust, will be a really good fit with a little adaptation.

So, it is definitely compatible and I would think you could make good use of it depending on what kind of game you run. Do you have any specific questions about the magical traits your KoUB characters use?

So I took your question over to the Micronomicon discord server and we are having a ball imagining how the various settings could be adapted for toys and teddy bears. Really having a lot of fun with that. So, thank you. (Also, feel free to come join us.)

Adam R November 04, 2021 11:22 pm UTC
Thank you for the answer, and no, not yet. I've only GMed a single one-shot that was in the book with some friends some time ago, so I don't know that much yet.

And I'd love to join you! Send a link my way and I'll hop in when I can ^^

As a publisher myself, I can't give a rating or review of other publishers' products. So I'll leave a comment instead.

The Micronomicon is the best, most setting-adaptable compendium of rules for magic that I've ever seen. Would you like to use Tiny D6 to roleplay in {any published setting with magic}? This book almost certainly will help you do that - in a way that feels consistent with the setting.

Plus, all the micro-settings in the book itself! Incredible work. Just reading it is worth the price, and right now I'm actually a player in one of the settings, and it's a great experience. The setting descriptions are really well done, concise and evocative.

No, the print option showed up 4-5 days later after I posted that. I purchased mine, hopefully on the way in the not too distant future!

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.
