Have you ever longed for that feeling of wonder of your first role playing game?

Do you love fantasy and stories, but freedom and exploring too?

Do you love cinematic combat, but also fast and simple rules that don't get in the way?

Are you an experienced gamer or are you new to role playing altogether?

In all these cases, The World Beyond may be the game for you.

These are the first thirty or so pages of The World Beyond Basic Game, for a ridiculously low price.

You can build your own hero, and get some feel of the system. You'll find hero sheets, illustrations, templates,

and a glossary explaining about role playing.

It's excellent to introduce new players into an existing campaign.

Find The World Beyond Basic Game and Samaris Game Companion elsewhere on this site.

Hundreds of pages, most illustrated in full color, packed with adventure ideas, and simple rules rich with fantasy detail,

played and time-tested for many years all over the world. Curious? Try this sample!

Very good sample. Single d10 system, with single digit numbers to work with. Based on semi-fantasy, semi historical Europe, with what appears to be a fantasy Catholic Church (Crosstian). Easy to play. The artwork seems to get better on later products. [...]

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.
