A role playing game of discovery, storytelling, and the softer side of horror.

Karst features simple rules, flexible character creation, animal folk, and a haunted archipelago filled with terrible secrets. This complete, illustrated edition contains rules, information about the game's setting, advice for play, an introductory adventure, and a mini-gazetteer that outlines one of the Karst Archipelago's most famous ports of call: Porta Cortu.

The game system harkens back to the roots of the hobby, but is informed by ensuing developments; it's easy to learn and even easier to modify or use with content from other games. There are no character classes in Karst, but almost any character concept can be created using the game's system of knacks and backgrounds.

This is a game of storytelling, with an open canon and a liberal 3rd-party license; the Karst Archipelago Historical Society welcomes your creations and stories, and would be delighted to highlight them.

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.
