Hey James! I was one of the ones who got to play with you at ragecon! Thanks for the free bundle! However it says I own this but in my downloads it only offers me the character sheet. I think the upload to the site with the bundle might be bugged still. :(

After reading through it, I'm really looking forward to running this! Are there any adventures or scenarios available? Or are there any that are easily adaptable?

Hey there Steve! Thanks for giving my game a shot! I'm about ready to release 2 adventure modules for the game. I'm hoping to have one of them released in the next 2 weeks, and the other one is not them a month away

I am putting a random adventure generator together as well that ill be releasing here. And I'm also working on an official setting, tentatively called Alesia.


In the meantime, I do have some tips and tricks for creating adventures that I can share! Just shoot me an email to bssgames@gmail.com, and I'll give you a bunch of tools that I use to create adventures quickly!


This game requires very little prep once you are familiar with the rules and mechanics, and you can create creatures and NPC's on the fly. I'll be happy to send you the techniques I use to whip up detailed adventures quickly!

James

I just picked this up, and I noticed what seems to be a persistent error. The manual keeps asking for a "gut check." But the stat is referred to as "Guts." Strictly speaking, a "gut check" would have more to do with hunches, instinct and intuition (i.e, a gut feeling.). It might be a typo, one that can be caught in the next round of edits.

That's certainly a valid interpretation. But people also interpret it to mean toughness, or courage ("that takes guts!"), which is what it means in the game; the ability to keep functioning even though you've been injured, poisoned, etc. I hope that helps!

I think the amount showing is correct and the usual price is x2 that.
Based on the deal of the day email.

I've been asked a couple times about this, so yes! I'm going to contact my layout person and have a print-friendly version created. I will notify you as soon as it is available! :)

Kickstarted this and just used the code but it only shows that I "own" the character sheet and not the core rules.

Hi, I just purchased the game, and I'm doing a first read-tnrough. I'm wondering why the two different versions of the pdf are included. Is there a reason I might want the April 2022 version?

Hi there! Thanks so much for trying my game! I'm going to have to do some digging on that, because there's only supposed to be one version of the PDF. I'm thinking there might be 2 copies of the same version, but with different dates. I'll reach out to DTRPG and have them help out with this. Thank you for posting and letting me know!

I've been toying around with various iterations of Fate, Fudge, and PbtA games for about a year...looking for just the right play experience to start a new game. Most lack a single-roll exchange (an excellent aspect of PbtA) or a functional magic system. So far, this seems to have exactly what I'm looking for. You seem to share a lot of the same RPG sensibilities I have. I'll drop a review when I get a chance to digest everything. Nice work!

Btw...it's a pet peeve of mine when I buy a game pdf to find that there are no bookmarks. I know a lot of other consumers feel the same way. Once I know that I have the right pdf file, I'll be adding comprehensive and nested bookmarks. Let me know if you'd like me to send my bookmarked copy to you to use as the for-sale version...just out of appreciation for the product.

Thank you so much! It turns out that there were 2 versions in the digital uploads. They had different file names due to the upload dates, but they are identical files. I removed one of them. Thanks again for pointing that out! :)

This makes me sad! I thought we had formatted it with bookmarks! I would actually be happy to compensate you for bookmarking the digital file! Could I interest you in a hardcover copy? Right now, only the softcover is available, but the hardcover should be available in the next week or two, and I'd be happy to send you a copy!

That sounds awesome! Email me at etherio.alternate@gmail.com

Fyi, I noticed what seems to be a typo on p32...

"Unopposed Checks are usually more common on opposed Checks..."

I'll finish reading the rulebook tomorrow, so I'll send any others to you via email before bookmarking, if you like. If you want to make edits to those typos and re-render the PDF before I bookmark it, I'll wait until you're ready. Let me know.

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.
