Deluxe Oldham Rules


Oldham Rules is a minimal tabletop role-playing game, that focuses on quick characters, quick game prep (for creating antagonists and encounters), and focusing on jumping straight into playing a game of medieval fantasy adventuring. With an art direction and world inspired by the marginalia of illuminated manuscripts, of peasants riding snails and fighting little horned devils with pitchforks.

It is available in two forms: Oldham Rules, & Deluxe Oldham Rules.

  • Oldham Rules is the rules of the game in a 16 page zine. All the information needed to mechanically play the game, and get the ball rolling.
  • Deluxe Oldham Rules is that same zine, but expanded to 32 pages. Where the rules are the same, but with more art, and tables and tools for generating spells, monsters, rumors/crises, characters, adventure locations, an encounter generator, 18 detailed and prewritten encounters and more.

Whereas Oldham Rules has the rules for the game where little prep is required to play. Deluxe Oldham Rules contains flavorful tools that help a Referee or game group organizer complete the limited amount of game preparation needed to play the game. As well as create quick results on the fly to create people and places of interest to fill in the gaps of a game groups campaign of adventure. Deluxe Oldham Rules, through these tools and tables presents a procedurally generated (using procedurally generated as a term liberally) with assistance world of play.

Additionally, the deluxe version comes with the shorter version of the game as well!

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.
