Rebel Scum

Watermarked PDF

A cinematic TTRPG about a "war in the stars" inspired by a deep love of old school action figures and of punching Nazis in the face.

REBEL SCUM tells the story of how scrappy, anti-fascist heroes can fight back against a government with unlimited power (including giant lasers and space magic). Inspired by a love for a certain line of 3 and 3/4 inch action figures, this is a fast paced, feel good, space opera of rebellion and adventure.

Your purchase includes the rulebook, printable chracter sheets (cardbacks), and printable character sheets for the crew of The Last Hope.

In this TTRPG, characters are all expressed as action figures, with their pertinent stats and abilities "on the back of the card." Choose your toy and get out into battle!

REBEL SCUM rewards you with Stars when you punch Nazis in the face, and you can use those Stars to take cinematic action (like bullseye a ratwomp, swing across a chasm, cut off a creeper’s arm in a bar). And it's not to late to get in on the action! Click through to preorder now and grab the zine as soon as it's printed.

There are five character aspects in REBEL SCUM: The Ronin, The Revolutionary, The Rogue, The Renegade, and The Robot.  Each Aspect selects 3 classes that provide their skills and abilities, answer a leading question that puts them into the story, as well as selecting their role (which determines the die that they roll).

I purchased the print version of this last week and received it a day ago. I wish I had waited and got the PDF version, because I found the layout of the book a mess. Had I this PDF version then I could have rearranged the contents to my liking. I'll explain.

The book uses KEYWORDS throughout. And they make it clear "KEYWORD A" can also be called "KEYWORD B" or "KEYWORD C" depending on your CLASS or ACTION. This is fine, I suppose, it's more of a flavor thing. However there are times when KEYWORD B or C are used without any context. And, unfortunately, I found words used in the place of KEYWORDS that appear to have been older discarded KEYWORDS (and these discarded keywords are used in game play examples as well).

Another design choice that annoyed me is that pre-made characters are sprinkled in the book, randomly I suppose. It can make one wonder if it has something to do with what you are reading at that time. I feel it would have been better to collect...See more

Thanks for your feedback, George! The character sheets are available to download from our website (no links allowed) and there is a PDF included in the digital purchase from DriveThru.

This looks awesome! Are you going to release a "print friendly" PDF? All of these black backgrounds are going to be hard on my printer. Thanks.

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.
