Sage and Sand Post-Apocalyptic RPG (2nd Edition)


Sage and Sand is a role-playing game set in an alternate distant future on planet Earth.  Nuclear war has occurred, with several countries having struck all over the globe.  Millions of people died from the initial blasts; resulting in nuclear winter, urban skirmishes, and of course the abominations.  No one knows for certain their origins.  Few abominations have been killed for research, none captured alive.  They have crawled, flown, and slithered out of bomb blasts and caves after the blasts.  Humanoid in appearance and yet very un-human, to notice one long enough to describe it usually means death.

This role-playing game focuses on story-telling and character development.  There are certain "factions" controlling the planet, with each character belonging to one of them.  Players in a party struggle for basic survival, and try to piece back their lives after chaos erupted barely over a year ago.

This is the Core Rulebook I and contains everything you need to play except pencil and six-sided dice.  Three factions and ten occupations to choose from for character creation, with all the basic rules covered and two sample scenarios included.  The 2nd edition has better art and better layout, with more material.  First written in 2010, and now updated in 2018.

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.
