A Road by Any Other Name (Untold)

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Untold Encounters - these nifty little pdf files are like two products in one! Untold players can use them either as a mega setup for Untold: Battle, or as ready-to-play scene that can be dropped into their regular Untold RPG's.

A Road by Any Other Name takes place during a sweltering hot day on a lonely and deserted section of ravaged road in the middle of a blasted wasteland. The sun is high and the winds are perfectly still. A lost and patch-worked force of High-bred soldiers with their unusual shaman-guide and two odd conscripts run into arag-tag band of Churl survivalists and their odd “mounts”. Both groups are struggling to survive in the blasted wastes, and both have resources that the other can use.

We've teamed up with Skeleton Key Games and tailored A Road By Any Other Name, to fit perfectly with SKG's OMEGA TILES 01: Ravaged Roads product. If you pick up SKG's PDF, you have a ready-made map for this encounter – and we show you how to build the map inside. All the rules and background information you need to play are also right inside the pdf. We give you the complete scenario setup, the breakdown of the forces, counters for all of the characters and creatures you'll be using and more.

So grab your dice, grab your friends and get your Untold Encounter on - TONIGHT!

Untold: Battle

Untold Battle™ is a fast-paced, exciting way for players to duke it out with custom built creatures and parties. Showcasing the many Battle Factions of the Untold universe, Untold Battle was created for two players to choose two opposing factions and fight with tooth, bullet, tentacle and spell until only one side remains. But Battle players are not limited - they can use all of the Untold cards to change and make their units unique, or even create their own character, just as if they were going to play the roleplaying game because the rules are the same. And Battle doesn't need to be two sided, the rules work for one-on-one, one-on-many, or many-on-many. Untold Battle Rules provide a brutal, bloody, and hard-hitting game that packs a punch!

The Battle Factions

Untold offers limitless possibilities for worlds and adventures. And on every world there are nations, corporations, shadow organizations, alien marauders, and so forth; we collectively call these Factions. We've built all the unique creatures, minions, soldiers, and things that go bump in the night and put them together in Battle Faction packs, so you can pick your favorites or mix and match to do Battle. Untold Battle offers an arena for all the forces of your imagination to duke it out. Now you can pit zombies against soldiers, or tentacled demons against steam punk robots. Or you can help shape the destiny of one of the Untold worlds: will the brave forces of the North American Union overcome the twisted Flux Horrors? Or you can help reshape the face of Europe as the Churl Confederation advances on the new knights of Novus Europa!

The Untold Rules

Untold Battle utilizes Untold Minion Cards because they are quick to use. Minions are one card, instead of a number of cards, that represent a single character, and that is important when your Battle has a large number of forces. And Minions still offer the limitless customization of Untold Powers through Swapping.

Once players choose their Factions and/or characters, Battle is as simple as lining up the cards on the table across from each other and taking turns between their minions. Battle utilizes Untold's simple and quick combat mechanics (see our Online Primer for more, or just refer to back of the handy insert that comes with every Battle Faction pack), and all the rules you need for the minions are on the cards!

Product Information

File Size:
14.69 MB
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.
