The Totality of Ygg


PookaAt an off-center point of a lenticular galaxy, the purple gas giant Tartarus spins slowly around a dying star, cradling five moons in its gravitational embrace. A thousand civilizations have thrived and perished in the Goliath's porphyry shadow, worshipping a multitude of gods and debauching themselves in the ruins of their ancestors. Outside the walls of their cities savagery abounds, and great treasures lie buried beneath the wreckage of time. Do you and your Band have what it takes to wrest these riches from the wastelands, or will you join the multitudes that lie beneath the rotting stones?

These old school game rules contain everything you need to run your dark fantasy campaigns on the moons of Tartarus.

Fully illustrated, 403 pages, and completely free!


  • Character creation rules for four Tropes and four Species.
  • Full weapon, equipment, and treasure lists.
  • Fully built systems for Arcana (Leechcraft, Liturgies, Witchcraft, and Wizardry) and the Vulgate (Charms, Medicine, Sacraments, and Whispers).
  • Options during Downtime, including Research, Cunning, and Wonders.
  • A full compendium of monsters, with methods to easily convert horrors from your favorite modules on the fly.

The Totality of Ygg is an OSR fantasy heartbreaker written by Stefan Antonowicz and based off of work by Arnold Kemp, Skerples, Logan Knight, and Patrick Stuart.  These rules are free, and published under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.

Just downloaded this weekend and am still digesting it. The Totality of Ygg is clearly a labour of love and on track to becoming one of my new favorite things.

There are just two more things I would like:

* A print edition
* A community for discussing and sharing adventures, homebrew, tips and tricks based on this work.

Hi Mamading,

Just wanted to drop a note that the print edition is coming in a week or two - I just put in my order for the final draft from IngramSpark and if things look good I'll figure it out from there.

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.
