A Good Death

Suggested Price $2.00


You stand against impossible odds, facing a ruthless enemy. Eventually, you will fall. All you ask is that you be granted a good death.

A Good Death is a solo role-playing game and storytelling engine wherein you fight a hopeless battle to save your people. You must manage dwindling resources--the strength of your defenses, the health of the populace--and balance them against potentially earning personal glory and Omen tokens that can alter your fate.

Each turn, you draw Fate cards and decide whether to accept the outcome or contest your fate to minimize the consequences and earn glory.

At the beginning and end of each turn, you record your interpretation of events in your Chronicle. What tragic or epic events unfolded? What role did you play? Did fortune shine on you, or did fate conspire to rob you of glory?

Eventually, you will be forced to make a final stand against the darkness. Your Chronicle concludes with a record of your last moments and the historical account of events.

How will history judge your final days?

Did you become a legend or were you forgotten?

Did you die a good death?


  • A standard deck of playing cards
  • One or more 6-sided dice
  • Tokens to track Glory, Omens, and your Battle Plan
  • A Story Sheet 

Also available from Groovy Dad Games

Please, consider to make a printer friendly version (White background, black font). I like to print my manuals. Thank you.

Hi, Antonio. Yes, I can certainly do that.

Ok. There should be two new versions visible now. One is B&W (black text; white background) without the front/back cover images. The other one is "printer friendly" (or at least, friendlier)--it has black text and white background, but retains the images which are still in full color.

Let me know if those don't work for you. I hope you enjoy playing!

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.
