Heroes of Oz: Instant Oz Quickstart Rules


The time has come! Be the Hero in your own Oz story!

Instant Oz cover

Instant Oz is the Quickstart Rules for the Heroes of Oz Roleplaying Game. 

Founded on the world-renowned Oz stories by L. Frank Baum, Instant Oz gets you right into the story. With character-centered play, players guide the story to create their own adventures in Oz.

The Land of Oz is like no other fantasy world ever created, and for decades, fans have been inspired to create their own stories inside the setting of the original American fairy tale. With 40 official books and over 200 fan novels, Oz has influenced many authors, filmmakers, artists, and comic book makers.

With more and more Oz-based movies, comics, and games coming out, Oz is the place to be in fantasy, and now it's your turn. With Instant Oz's easy-to-use mechanics (based upon the popular and well-supported Fudge System from Grey Ghost Games) you now can step into the land of Oz.

  • Rules-light to speed up play. Don't get bogged down with the rules
  • Flexible conflict - as family-friendly or bloody as your group needs it!
  • Four original characters to begin playing with - complete with filled-out character sheets!
  • Illustrations straight from the books for that authentic Oz feel
  • Guidelines for parents to play Instant Oz with children.
  • Many adventures and plot seeds on the way from Darkstar Eclectic Media

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.
