Broken Tales [ENG]

Watermarked PDF


Once upon a time, a child saved the world of fairytales. His reward was a wish. The One who Plots in the Shadows saw an opportunity to tarnish the child's heart, whispering to him a corrupted idea. The child asked the King of Fairytales that the Villains, accursed for centuries, be granted a new life. This was to be their chance for redemption. This was how the Villains became good. But any light needs a shadow, and in turn, the Heroes became evil. At that moment, all fairytales were shattered.

Broken Tales is a tabletop RPG of dark stories, reinterpreting fairytales from an upside-down perspective. Players will become part of the Order, a secret group operating on behalf of the Papacy to investigate supernatural events beyond human comprehension. Moving through an 18th century Europe imbued with mysticism and horror, the main characters of Broken Tales are nothing less than the former antagonists of fairytales, thrown into a new world resulting from the wish of the Child Savior.

Hi there, thanks for pointing it out. The problem is that this book has square pages, the qucik preview looks very distorted. I'll try implementing the PDF preview. We also have a free Quickstart available here, that gives you a good idea of the main book

Uhm, even that seems to output a "The requested URL was not found on this server" error. Need to look into solutions.

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.
