At Your Peril


A most haunting tome that contains everything you need to know to write, use and create shenanigans with Curses on the tabletop. By taking a "teach a man to fish" approach, this handbook will give you a full knowledge on using curses as narrative tools. A good curse can be the centre fulcrum of an entire setting when used correctly! Even minor curses can give myriad character choices, party interaction and hilarity in heaps.

At Your Peril includes cursed based guides and tips for:

  • Narrative Tools - Much like how The One Ring or Frostmourne massive shape their worlds, At Your Peril will teach you how to create a cursed item to function as a narrative crux for your setting or campaign.
  • Character Backstories - Playing a character suffering from a curse without it becoming a moping mess. There's narrative hooks abound with a cursed backstory!
  • Player Choice & Party interaction - a good curse gives plenty of chances for a character to choose their fate, even if they may not be aware of it! Even a single cursed player can spice up the party dynamic, acting a springboard for roleplay for every player.
  • Shenanigans! - Shocking as it may seem, slowly transforming an unwitting character (and equally unwitting player!) into a squid monster can lead to all sorts of hilarity and hijinks.

Our extra handouts upgrade also gives you: some much needed Ready-Made Curses!
Sometimes you don't have time to cook a hearty home-grown meal and just need something quick. At Your Peril will provide some much-needed ready baked items that will provide plenty of narrative function and some hilarity to boot, without sacrificing on quality.

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.
