Torch & Dagger

Watermarked PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

Torch & Dagger is a tabletop roleplaying game set in a world of darkness and despair, one where the evils of the world roam freely across the land and common folk rarely leave the safety of their homes after dark. Bandits patrol the roads preying on those foolish enough to travel them, and even more hideous and dangerous monsters skulk about the forests and lesser walked paths devouring any who dare tread them. In the depths of the wilderness lie ruins long lost, yet full of treasure for those brave enough to take it. The life of an adventurer is often short, but for some, the potential riches are worth it.

Adventurers come in many shapes and sizes. Some carry heavy steel and act as bulwarks, protecting the weak from the horrors ahead. Others summon the power of the arcane or the divine to aid their allies and push back the darkness. Some simply rely on quick wit and fast fingers, grabbing what they can and escaping before anyone can notice. There is no judgement. The world is a dangerous place, and survival trumps all else.

Who are you in this world? Only time will tell. Will you push the darkness back, or will you embrace it? The world is dark and full of terrors. Light your torch.

Purchase includes 50 tarot-sized monster print-and-play cards.

This is about the mechanics right from the Kickstarter:
In Torch & Dagger, the players have taken on the role of adventurers in this dark and scary world. As they progress through it, they’ll occasionally run into opposing forces that are designed to hinder their progress. As a general rule of thumb, whenever a player wants to do something opposed by another creature or with a reasonable chance of failure, they have to make a roll. Rolls are made using a number of six-sided dice equal to the corresponding stat and counting the number of 5+ results on them. These are successes. Depending on the difficulty of the action, multiple successes might be required.

Sometimes, the situation favors the player. Maybe they have the right tool for the job, or maybe they have the jump on an enemy. In situations like this, the player rolls with ADVANTAGE. Rolls with advantage succeed on a roll of 4, 5, or 6.

Other times, the situation is rather dire and the players find themselves between...See more

I was sad to see the Kickstarter campaign being cancelled. I would definitely back again. Especially so if the PnP cards were a physical add-on. Maybe that would be more cost effective than the custom dice.

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.
