Witches & War Rigs

Watermarked PDF

Witches & War Rigs is an adventure game in the classic old school tradition that asks "What if a classic medieval fantasy game had technology more like 1914 than 1419?" Player characters are adventurers exploring and reclaiming a lost continent filled with ancient ruins, hidden treasure, and bizarre monsters.

The sandbox setting and its monstrous inhabitants are procedurally generated as you explore the unknown. You can be a mercenary or big game hunter out to kill monsters. You can be an explorer out to map the wilderness or a prospector looking for new natural resources. You can be a scholar seeking to study the ancient ruins or catalog and name newly discovered flora and fauna. (And get XP for doing all of those things!)

The system is simple, familiar, and versatile. There are only two classes: Witch and Warrior. However, there are four spheres of magic with three paths each so a witch could be a holy priestess, an academic elementalist, a primal force of nature, or an infernal warlock who dabbles in necromancy. Be an alchemist wizard who rides a motorcycle off-road into the wilderness to collect samples of rare herbs and the glands of strange beasts. 

Warriors are tough combatants with access to a variety of cool gear to face any challenge in the wilderness: machine guns, magical witchlock pistols, silver bullets, sun grenades, a truck full of ammo and hired mercs. Most importantly, warriors can wear a War Rig, a heavy suit of diesel-powered armor that can be tricked out with a load of weapons and accessories: everything a warrior needs to be an army on two legs!

Based on familiar old school game mechanics, but with some new ideas, Witches & War Rigs can be used with most classic adventure "dungeons" you may already have. (If it asks you to "make a Dex check" or "make a Con save vs poison" from a venomous "3HD monster", you can drop it into a W&W game with minimal adjustment.) 

If you like exploring dungeons and fighting dragons, but wish you could shoot that dragon with a tommy gun while standing on the running boards of a moving pickup truck, this is your chance!

I'm really baffled again and again how so many authors who want to sell something here, are not able to give a proper description nor preview of their game.

This game was literally just uploaded. It takes time for the previews to load, but there's both a "quick preview" and a "full-size preview" that will show up when the website finally catches up. If you're looking at the site on a mobile device, click "desktop site" in your browser menu to see all the features.

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.
