Wretched Bastards is a low-magic, dark fantasy role-playing game. Besides being deadly and bleak, it is meant to be sleazy. The main characters aren’t heroes at all; they are greedy, violent, lecherous, cruel, untrustworthy scoundrels. They will lie, backstab, betray, double-cross, kill and pillage through this grim fantasy world. They aren’t heroes, because there are no heroes in the kingdom of Riget, only a handful in the Kharabas continent, and not a whole lot more in the world of Antillia. In Wretched Bastards low-budget European sword and sorcery movies meet spaghetti western!
Even though this core book doesn't include a setting, the Wretched Bastards will feature a game world, that will be built throughout a series of scenarios (World of Bastards), such as the already released Daughters of Darkness and Seven Bastards.

So I bought this as well as Daughters of Darkness, and I have to say that I am enthralled with WB. It works on so many levels for the style of gameplay that I enjoy!
One question though, it appears the Savant is missing some sort of skill bonus progression. Otherwise, why wouldnt someone just play a Rogue with its superior hit points and skill points?
Am I missing something?

That's a very good point indeed. As I mentioned in the introduction to the game, this is a work in progress and I'll be taking into account what buyers and reviewers have to say. I'll address that problem in the next revision.

I think specifically mentioning rape, as if it were a selling point, is going to cost you sales.

Like any other act of violence, it is for each group to decide what to allow or not. If it will scare away certain players? Most certainly.

We can all judge and censor media on our own, without content creators deciding for us. This kind of fearless content should be commended.

I'm glad to have stumbled upon this. Insta-bought! Will post a review soon!

It's gone mate.
No mentioning of things decreasing mention
Earning X.P killing folks and robbing them as could just whatever mention unlawful.relations
With fictional characters for heaven's sakes.....
Really Arguably Pathetic Extremes.

It's gone mate
No mentioning of things that we can't mention
Though earning X.P for killing and robbing fictional characters
No problem absolutely fine.... Unlawful intimate relations with fictional characters is yet this bizarre taboo ?
Seriously some folk need a word with themselves.
If it's not real life it honestly doesn't matter.
Chances are in this setting you're going to be suffering crazy consequences
In performing any kind of physical contact.
Don't think the Wretched are that fussed ...
Do What Thou Wilt. In Game.

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.
