Dicey Tales #1

Watermarked PDF

Dicey Tales is a periodical that features articles supporting the Barbarians of Lemuria (BoL) roleplaying game. Our goal is to expand the reach of BoL beyond Sword & Sorcery into the full realm of the pulps. Every issue features official expansions of the BoL rules allowing the system to encompass all of the various genres of pulp adventure- Two-fisted adventure, Western, Outer Space, Lost World, and many more.

Issue #1 of Dicey Tales launches our two-part foray into the classic adventure pulps. With this issue of Dicey Tales the world of daredevils, soldiers of fortune, occult investigators and cloaked crime-fighters will now be fully incorporated into the BoL system.

New "Adventure Pulp" Character generation rules
New Careers
New Boons
New Flaws
New rules for Magic, Psychic Powers, Super Science Gadgets, firearms and vehicles
Two complete adventures

All officially approved for use with the Barbarians of Lemuria: Legendary Edition rules.

OK, this one took me a little by surprise. Evil DM took an already great system (BoL) and adds another genre (Pulp Adventure) to the list of playable games! Nice, concise rules, some nice boons and flaws that capture the feel of everything fro [...]

Althoug written for Barbarians of Lemuria, the text is incredibly clear and easy to convert to my own favorite system. Pulpy adventure at the end is a highlight. [...]

If you already are a fan of Barbarians of Lemuria and are looking for a supplement that will allow you to play in the pulp genre, then this is it. There really isn't a whole lot else to say. Just a great all-around pulp supplement for one of the best [...]

An excellent addition to the Barbarians of Lemuria "family"! Jeff Mejia (The Evil DM) has provided us with a really useful toolkit for full-on Pulp action. There are a wide range of careers, and Boons & Flaws for creating square-jawed her [...]

Full Disclosure: I have some bias, having helped with the editing of Issue #1. However, bias aside, The Evil DM, a.k.a. Jeff, has hit a homerun with Dicey Tales #1. DT #1 exudes pulpy goodness. The expanded boons and flaws just add icing. The Ev [...]

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.
