Smog & Steel

Watermarked PDF

A different take on the fantasy formula, a TTRPG system set in a fantasy world that has achieved a 1910s level of technology. With wizards exploding transition metals, yokai dwarves, and devine insects. 

This is a free D20 system published under the OGL. It is designed for ease of use on the GM’s end and finding a balance between simplicity and character options. There are 20 classes with unique mechanics, 8 common lineages, 4 rare lineages, and a weapon customization system. There is an escalating injury system that means combat is dangerous without being overly deadly. Fleshed out downtime activities and helpful random tables for GMs. While there is a given setting the system itself can easily be tweaked to fit a custom or more standard setting.

"Escalating injury system". That sounds hilarious! I imagine black knight "Tis but a flesh wound" levels of ridiculous injuries being carried around by all the party members!
Maybe that in itself is worth another D&D clone? I have to read it now... (actually some of the setting concepts sounds pretty cool too)

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.
