You scared? This is a pre-code horror comic strip, tame by modern standards I'm sure, but proper for Halloween.

This book is designed as a solo game experience using the art from the public domain comics of Weird Terror #1 (1952). It is a linear adventure, in the style of choosing your own adventures. It's close to being a roll and write RPG, with more direction, due to it being a training book. This book is the second in the series of basic guidebooks that explain how to play. This covers basic dice rolling with Wild Dice, what some games call rolling with Advantage.

After the series of example books are complete, the advanced core rules for Public Domain Game will be published. With the core rules you will be able to take any comic book and run your character through it. With the advanced rules, you will be able to find the target numbers on each page by simply reading the page and using charts from the rules. Your character will advance, whether they win or fail!

To sum up, you can take your original character into the main role of any comic book, even the modern ones, with the upcoming advanced rules. This particular guide is the basics of how to get started.

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.
