Baba Yaga: The Secret War


     You’re not safe anymore.

     Madmen and tyrants have unleashed their forces upon the world. Civilization is aflame, its ashes scattering before an onrushing storm. Can you defend your people? Can you stave off evil? Can you hold on long enough to outlast the forces of darkness?

     You’d better hope so. For if you fail, the most evil men in history will hold the world by its throat while they tread over your grave. You have no choice but to fight, so get your gun, soldier!

     But be careful.

     It’s a war out there.

     Welcome to Baba Yaga: The Secret World War II.

     A world where a few hidden enclaves retain fading traces of ancient magic - perhaps enough to give their partisans, spies, and agents an edge of their own to counter the mechanized onslaught of modern warfare.

     Baba Yaga includes the 132-page rulebook, a condensed printer-friendly version, and a set of player’s quick-reference sheets, covering:

     ● A complete universal RPG, Skill, and Magic system

     ● A guide to WWII Weapons, Equipment, and Combat

     ● WWII Infantry Gear, Organization, and Tactics

     ● The Creatures of Magic, Constructs, and the Undead

     ● WWII Events and Tactics - with a full Sample Campaign

     ● A guide to Magic Levels, Enchantments, and Artifacts

     ● Partisan, Anti-partisan, Tank, and other Tactics and Strategies

     ● Sample Characters and a guide to Campaigns beyond WWII

     Baba Yaga was designed to satisfy both our Wargamers and our Role-Players: Character creation is quick and easy, firefights are fast and deadly, and the magic system rewards creativity, rather than memorizing lists. It’s also entirely optional. While a touch of magic lightens and adds style to a grim, realistic, setting, our playtesters have run several no-magic campaigns without a problem. In fact, every one of our playtesters who game-masters has started at least one Baba Yaga campaign of his or her own - giving us a chance to play in Normandy, Italy, Hong Kong, the American Revolution, and even the far future in Deep Space with character types ranging from Elite Normals through Pulp Heroes and even Superheroes.

     The print-on-demand version is by their request. They all want a copy.

     Anyone who purchases the .PDF version gets six dollars off the print version if they buy it later on.

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.
