A Summer on Tell Tale Island

Suggested Price $2.99

So here's the deal: we're stuck on a mystical, treacherous, ever-changing, and paradoxical island in the middle of nowhere this summer. I know what you're wondering, "What?! Why?!'" well let me explain. You see our Magic Scout leader Rick, at Camp Huxley, got very fed up with our rowdy antics. So fed up, in fact, that he banished us to this island to teach us a lesson! He says if we don't shape up and earn our camp badges before summer's end, we are stuck here... at least until our parents come pick us up.

A Summer on Tell Tale Island is a rules-lite survival RPG for groups of all ages. As magic scouts exiled to an island full of wonderment and terror, you will try to survive, go on adventures, and ultimately endeavor to fulfill your scout badge before the summer ends! 

All you'll need for an adventure comes in this succinct 15-page PDF. It contains the rules, character sheets, the island map, tables, and all of the badges. Unfortunately, you can't print dice or pencils so you will have to provide those yourself.

From the get-go, you will be tasked with fulfilling your magic scout badge as you navigate and survive on the island. There are a total of 21 badges to choose from and each one will force players and the narrator to think critically about how they want to achieve their goals.

The island is a mystical and dangerous manifestation of Magic Scout Leader Rick. He used all of his magic dust to conjure it up and send you there because he got fed up with you. Players should feel free to annotate their map with landmarks and location reminders as they progress through an adventure.

Ultimately, if your group can survive long enough on Tell Tale Island to fulfill your badges, you can transport back to camp in time for the big summer ice cream social!

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.
