Jurassic Ancestry Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Now the Unofficial  Test Edition...


Jurassic Ancestry is being brought back for revision, meaning that for now this version of the game is out for free to inspire interest. In the new version we at Joker's Playground hope to achieve:

-A "new" combat system that encompasses the Card system, but will also have a dice version that can be used along with the Card version as equals. This means that friends who prefer dice can use them while you use cards

-An Increase in Ancestries: The four basic Dinosaurs will no longer be alone. Added soon will be the Ankylosaurus, Packycepholosaurus, and possible others.

-Clearer rules: The rules will be reworked to include more situations and better, more thourough explenation

At this moment, this obsolete version is now Free To Play, and will no longer be updated. Buyers of this product will automatically recieve the new version when it is released. If you have any ideas for content that should be added, send an email to the email . We hope to see our fans increase and stick with us through this period of revision.

Around the year 2025 scientists began to notice strange occurrences in the human genome. This change seemed to lead people to become more savage, even killers. It was first labelled a disease much like rabies that would slowly turn you into a savage beast. Roughly 1 in 1000 people got it. But eventually a doctor by the name of Alfred Gurvenhowzer was able to pinpoint that these changes were not a disease, but a type of ancestral framework embedded into our DNA. It wasn't till about 2040 when Alfred and his scientists were finally able to conclude that the ancestry was not from our common ancestors such as monkeys or apes, but of dinosaurs.

Now in the year, 2059 the world is not a world at war, but a world of war. Join the fight by playing a superior super-soldier powered by your Dinosaurial Instincts, and the unique playing card based "Critical Bar" rule system. Welcome to Jurassic Ancestry!

This Core Rulebook includes:

-4 different Dinosaur Ancestries, each with 20 unique abilities, seperated into 4 catagories

-25 unique Human abilities, seperated into 5 catagories

-A How to play section that details how to use the unique playing card based Critical Bar system

-Basic history of some of the major changes in the new world

-A starter mission that puts your characters right into the world of Jurassic Ancestry

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.
