Ryne: Kickstarter Playkit


Ryne is funding on Indiegogo now! This is the free playkit.

Our world is shaped by the Remnants—titans as tall as mountains and as long as valleys. We are the people who live in the patchwork world that they have created. We have built our homes and communities, we’ve learnt how to survive and travel in the strange landscapes that they’ve created. We adapt as their territories shift around us. We live in the shadows of indifferent gods.

Ryne is a wild fantasy ttrpg about communities holding things together, in a world that is falling apart.  Nothing here is stable, but it is filled with wonder—villages pulled by moss-furred beasts, rivers that run up mountains, trees that glow in the moonlight, and, always, a shambling colossus on the horizon.

The sorts of stories Ryne tells are often broad and varied, but they are joined by one common thread: you play to explore the relationship between humans and the titans.

You might be a guide leading people across a shifting glass desert, a priest learning new dances to offer as tribute to their titanic god or a curious ghost rediscovering their place in the world.

Ryne is a Powered by the Apocalypse game, designed to tell slow, thoughtful stories of strange and shifting fantasy. It focuses on emotion; both of your characters, and of the moods tied up in the landscape. It’s a highly-collaborative game, that invites you to build your own patchwork world together.

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.
