Gaming Primitive


The early days of the hobby were freestyle and dare we say, primitive...

Enter Gaming Primitive, a game that seals these years in amber. Short on rules but long on flavor, this system provides:

- Adventure in a post-magical world after the dwarves and elves have gone...

- A system of aspects and boons to grant characters the special powers fantasy demands...

- Personal origin stories, which eneable customization through a written narrative...

- Simple yet realistic combat that gets everyone involved with a unique damage sharing system...

- Enough detail that the Delver isn't winging it, with enough freedom to have fun...

And all of it offered in a conversational style that makes it easy while capturing the spirit of it's implied world. A place where magic lives on and monsters still haunt the dark!

Thoughtful considered writing with an engaging conversational tone. You've really bottled the essence of old school gaming. I read the spellcraft section and thought -'yes, just that'

Can I ask for POD before everyone else does : )

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.
