Lacuna Part I. (second attempt)

Watermarked PDF

Sinister secret agents with shadowy employers and mysterious pasts. A bizarre landscape built from six- billion human minds. Arachnid-headed beings that guard a war-torn borderzone. And all the worst that Mankind has to offer, stalking the alleys and crumbling buildings of a place called Blue City.

Is it a dream? Is it a nightmare? Or is it just a game? And are you already playing?

Ken Hite, Out of the Box: “…fabulously cool.”

Paul Tevis, Have Games Will Travel: “…elegant and simple mechanics for resolving conflicts…the inclusion of the heart-rate mechanic is fantastic [and] it’s one of the best pacing mechanics that I’ve seen so far…”

Ron Edwards, Sorcerer: “It is, in my view, the best work from Memento Mori by a considerable margin, and if you haven’t been paying attention, that means I think it’s one of the strongest RPGs in existence.”

Luke Crane, Burning Wheel: “This game is amazing. I think, and I can’t believe I’m going to say this, that this is Jared’s best design. And I think Inspectres is one of the best RPGs ever written.”

Zachary Houghton, RPG Blog: “…one of the most unusual, thought-provoking, and limitless RPGs of the past 10 years.”

The more I explain about LACUNA, the less fun it is to discover over time/while GMing/while playing, so I'm going to very much shy heavily away from describing the actual content of the game besides maybe what a player would need to know on their first [...]

Beautiful deisgn work coupled with one of the most interesting concepts for a game I've ever come across. Never had a bad time with it, the rules are exactly as meaty as I like, and its quick to get to the table. [...]

Lacuna is a wonderful rules-lite rpg of surreal horror/mystery. It is a little difficult to classify as the game is only about half-done in terms of rules, and the rest is all left up to the GM to complete. No two games of Lacuna are ever played alike [...]

...I downloaded the PDF from DriveThruRpg and started reading. And didn't stop until I finished the last page. (It's not a large book, but I don't tend to suck down RPG manuals in one sitting.) My powers of Google were activated and I read everything [...]

Lacuna is one of my most favourite games. It has a light and tight rule set, just the right amount to play the game and invoke the right feel and pacing. Its setting is vague enough to be very extensible, yet communicated in an effective way through te [...]

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.
