DreadLore - Getting Started Guide (updated) v.1.2

Suggested Price $0.99

This Getting Started Guide provides an introduction into the DreadLore system of mechanics for how to play and run a DreadLore game such as “The Keeping Cave” Adventure Module, the near-future "Into Space" Setting, or any Setting you like! It provides a game content on Character Creation, Abilities, Ninja Gear, Antagonists, and how to run the System.

DreadLore is a Storytelling Tabletop Roleplaying Game that allows Players to actually play the Character they want to play and to be at the center of the stories they’re telling.

DreadLore is Setting agnostic and can be used to run many different genres and settings. It is designed for dreamers, storytellers, and creatives. Players are given a lot of agency over the fiction. They “Bid” their Character Traits (resources) to affect the fiction and achieve their desired outcome. If the Arbiter deems that an action is difficult or opposed, Players have to Throw Down (dice) and are hoping to achieve more “Successes” than a target Threshold.

The Arbiter decides the stakes for success, failure, or meeting the Threshold, however the fiction is affected in any case – just not necessarily as intended. Players and the Arbiter (referee) go back and forth to build an amazing, cooperative story.

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.
