“It’s the late 21st century, a few decades after magic returned to the world. A small percentage of the population transformed overnight, with many becoming elves, ogres, beastfolk, or other so-called “new humans”—but some gained arcane gifts, the most powerful of whom were the “archmages.”

Civilization almost collapsed, but the archmages stepped forward to help, and with their support, the world’s governments managed to restore order. The people soon adapted to a new way of life, while the archmages faded from the public eye to establish secret organizations and pursue their own agendas.

You are “spellrunners,” freelance arcane operatives who take on clandestine jobs for the archmages.”

Inspired by cyberpunk-fantasy RPGs and novels such as Sprawlrunners and Ghosts & Magic, Spellrunners is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system. It is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twists. The PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

As a bonus feature, there is also a two-page example adventure called Spellrunners: Haven Heist, which can be printed on both sides of a single sheet of paper.

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.
