Pasiones y Traiciones - The Telenovela Simulator

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the world of Telenovelas. They might seem like ordinary Soap Operas but let me tell you that Latin-American Soap Operas take things to extremes. Villains are eviler than any old-school Disney villain; plot twists can be so abundant and outrageous that people often cry and scream at their screen out of disbelief; their protagonists usually have the most impressive displays of integrity and determination you can think of.

Telenovelas are a transgenerational phenomenon deeply rooted in Latin-American culture. Their most popular shows also often go overseas to capture the hearts and minds of other cultures as well. After all, themes like love and betrayal are universal.

PASIONES Y TRAICIONES is a fun and lighthearted homage to this fantastic cultural product. Presented as a Solo RPG, this small book brings tables with familiar names and situations that will help you build the plot and structure of your fictitious Telenovela. It doesn’t give you all the answers; as an exercise of imagination and creativity, you will need to fill in many blanks and have fun thinking about your next steps to take your protagonist to the final episode.

Here's a cool video from Ithaquas Bane that showcases the gameplay:

Short game but with very funny situations. It feels more like a creative writing aid for ideation, which can be useful for DMs. Due to low cost and creativity, i recommend.

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.
