Ecryme Starter Kit


Ecryme  is the English adaptation of a highly successful French tabletop role-playing game and  introduces the players to a steampunk, post-apocalyptic world where political  and social struggles mix with supernatural intrigues.

The French version of the  game, consisting of three books and a number of expansions, was published in 2016 and has been  highly praised by both the critics and the audience.

The Open Sesame Games French and American teams, having originally published this first version, now aim to translate Ecryme and bring it to the American audience. We are working on a rich and reworked adaptation of the original books. As we finish translating and adapting, we have started to prepare a Kickstarter campaign.

The official starter kit is already available for free. You only need this book and some six-sided dice to start discovering the world of Ecryme on your own! Fully illustrated by the main artist of Ecryme, Emile Denis, the kit contains:

  • A summary of the universe
  • The basic rules of the game
  • Four pre-made characters
  • A scenario to get you started

As you start to discover the secrets of Ecryme, we will be preparing your arrival in this corrosive, steamy, Jungian-punk universe…

My experience with these things is that they have big plans for releasing a popular European game in English, then they release the first book and nothing else. You get the core rules, but then the adventures, setting guide, bestiary, GM guide, etc say "coming soon" forever. The game sounds great, I like the description of the setting. But I'll wait until at least 2 full books are released before I devote any money to it.

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.
