The Best Summer Vacation Ever

. . . and maybe the last!

A crazy cult plans to destroy the world -- not just a school or the boring grown-up shops at the mall, but the WHOLE WORLD -- and it’s up to you to stop them. 

Now you and your friends, and your horrible friendly monsters, are taking on the Cult of the Ur-Monster from one end of the United States to the other. You'll explore creepy amusement parks, dusty tourist traps, and quaint roadside farms in the throes of violent revolution. Also, the land of Oz.

ROAD TRIP is written by Ross Payton (Curriculum of Conspiracy) and illustrated by Monsters and Other Childish Things artist Robert Mansperger, Jr., with color postcards by Kate Ashwin,  K.C. Green, Violet Kirk and Ean Moody.

The Good: Some nice twists on some classic situations. New, thematically appropriate mechanics. A wide variety in the adventures. The Bad: ORE still isn't the most intuitive system to me, but the game doesn't advertise itself as anything else. [...]

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.
