Dyvil: First Edition (Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game)

Watermarked PDF

The War Between Heaven and Hell is Over. Heaven Won.
Man, Are You Screwed!

Once upon a time, NUELOW Games' Steve Miller made the statement, "Any talented game designer with an understanding of what makes an RPG work can write a fully playable, stand-alone roleplaying game in under an hour."

Veteran game designer and novelist Jeff Grubb (co-founder of the Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance fantasy worlds and designer for ArenaNet's MMO Guild Wars) decided to put Miller's notion to the test 

At the end of the experiment emerged Dyvil: First Edition (Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game), proof positive that Miller isn't completely insane, and an illustration of the difference between a "Gaming Legend" and a "Former TSR Visionary": Not only is Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game funnier and more innovative than Steve Miller's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game, it's comes complete with a setting! (All Miller produced was a generic rules set... it took the skill of a Gaming Legend to produce a setting along with the rules in the time allotted!)

Dvyil: First Edition (Jeff Grubb's 30-Minute Roleplaying Game) is a complete, stand-alone RPG. In seven pages, it presents character generation rules, task and combat resolution mechanics, and lots of good humor.

Never has gaming the Armageddon aftermath been so simple or fun!

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.
