PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

You might have come for justice. You might have come for glory. Maybe you want revenge. Maybe you just have nowhere else to go. 

A 32-page zine. Sherwood is a game of outlaws and arcana, inspired by modern Robin Hood fantasies stories, the Robin of Sherwood television series, and the medieval outlaw ballads and romances, Sherwood is set in a fantastical version of 13th Century England.

The game uses a short lifepath character creation, exploring where each member of the band came from before finding themselves living among the outlaws of the woods. The game uses a 2d6 resolution system adapted from Traveller, Barbaric, and Tunnel Goons.

What's in the Zine?

Sherwood | A Game of Outlaws and Arcana includes rules for character creation and magic along with a GM section with opponents and two starter adventures. Cover and interior designer Eric Swanson of Narrative Dynamics drew on Howard Pyle's original Merry Adventures of Robin Hood in creating the look of the zine and illuminating the chapter headings.

Copies available as PoD on DriveThru and at Spear Witch.

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.
