Flashlight: Tales of Terror


Flashlight: Tales of Terror

This is a rules-lite Role-playing game designed for use with a single d6+attribute+bonus system.  The name derives from creating a quick play game that can be played in a flash; and a rules-lite mechanics to resolve actions.  Therefore, the name Flashlight.  It is simple and intuitive to play and allows the Game Master and the Players to focus on the hoorific situations and how the character's react to them. 

Flashlight: Tales of Terror had the following design goals: 

  • Stripped down and simple mechanics
  • Ease of character creation with solid role-play hooks
  • The Game Master does not roll dice, only interprets results
  • This is horror, so the game is shaped by failure as much as success
  • The game leans into the death spiral as the game gets harder
  • Setting and period agnostic rules

The game comes with a character sheet, quick play guide, and a starting Tale of Terror to play.

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.
