This is a non linear storytelling game about heroes reminiscing over their journeys, questioning motives and accomplishments.

When I first started writing TTRPG games, I always tried to avoid whatever "combat system" my games needed. Since every other game revolved around combat, I made it my focus to make games that dealt with conflict in many other ways even if violence was involved in the action. But recently I've been more concerned about the violence itself. The ways we turn human destruction into entertainment.

This game is a little something that came out of this thought process. Just a reflection on the reasoning behind conflict and violence. This is a mix between the Push system dice roll mechanics, created by Cezar Capacle, and the time map concept I created for my game PULSE, back in 2013 (soon to be published in English).

So... What is this game? In this game, players converse about the lives of retired heroes, reminiscing about their life of adventures and violent past. It can be played solo or whatever number of players, and they can create any number of characters to tell the story.

Players will create their character sheets, which records their Life Chapters and their Path of Demise. Life Chapters are related to the events on a timeline, the past of said heroes. The Path of Demise is a series of thoughts, trauma, and wounds, left to remember them about the costs of glory, and help them figure out what is there to live for from this point forward.

Each chapter of a character's life is put in a timeline, drawn in a sheet of paper, and players can select any of them to play out. The goal is to tell their stories while the characters themselves question their own motives. Why did they do it? Was there another way? Each of these events cast an area of impact on the timeline, represented by a circle. A dice roll determine its size. Whatever it touches, be it other lines or the timeline, creates new events in the story.

Players can keep creating new events and explore these characters' past until they're satisfied, or until the characters finally meet their demise. This doesn't mean they just die. They can just get silent, unwilling to tell their stories anymore. They might leave the other heroes, to never be seen again. They can go into denial, sure their motives were righteous. But that is for the players to decide, and their stories to be created.

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.
