ROLF: The Associated Shades of Hades

Watermarked PDF

The Associated Shades of Hades is a social club whose members are, generally speaking, refined and civilized in their behavior; one would expect nothing else from a group that includes such famous figures as George Washington, Confucious, and Sherlock Holmes. But sometimes, tempers flare, witty banter fails, and out come the knives, pistols, and pool cues.

ROLF!: The Associated Shades of Hades is a supplement inspired by John Kendrick Bangs' classic tales of Hades (also available from NUELOW Games, in Houseboat on the River Styx). Now Shakespeare and Bacon settle the question of who wrote "Hamlet" with violence of the most savage kind, while Cleopatra beats the stuffing out of Captain Kidd just because she feels like it.

Featured within these pages are new things to wear and weapons to weild (such as an Egyptian-style bikini and a beer stein), 18 pre-generated characters (including George Washington, Queen Elizabeth I, and Sherlock Holmes), optional combat rules, and more!

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.
