There’s a struggle in life between letting people in, being close and vulnerable, or shutting people out, staying safe and being unknowable. Sorcerers know this conflict well as they must be secretive of the sources of their power, lest they be exploited by their rivals. A sorcerer never lets anyone in, and their soul suffers for it.

And then you and people like you came along. People with the potential for sorcery beyond secrecy. A magic beyond a sorcerer’s chronic insecurity.

They threw you into the mines,  so that you would never come into your power. But then you found what you’d been denied: a spell book.

But will this be enough?


Mannerism is a diceless tabletop RPG about the inner battle with authenticity and becoming a pragmatic and masterful mage.

The game uses a pure approach-based system. To see who prevails in a contest, all you need are the player’s descriptions. Characters grow naturally from the skills they use and the manner in which they use them.

I think there is an error here.... it is listed as PWYW for the PDF, but ALSO for the hard copies. So theoretically I could PWYW for $0 and have the hardcopy for free? I don't think that was intended and wanted to bring it up because I don't want the writer to get taken advantage of due to what I presume is an error.

Thanks John. I have just set a card deck up for PoD today. There isn't currently a PoD for the book itself but I'm working on it!

I believe the card deck will specify a minimum cost for printing if someone attempts to pay less than that price.

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.
