Darkest Dice


Darkest Dice is a pocket -sized  basic RPG rule set based on the OGL.  It is designed in an aesthetic similar to those infamous (hateful) religious tracts that pop up everywhere (around 23 pages in a 5 x 2.75 in. format).  Make copies and leave them in a Texas Roadhouse bathroom. Anyone should be able to pick these rules up and begin a game.

Physical 4 packs available!  Message for info.

My dearest Lord Bludd;
I, your humble servant, beg your indulgence of the following queries:

1. It strikes me that Darkest Dice does correspond to the 0e booklet "Men and Magic". Will there be subsequent booklets along the line of "Monsters and Treasure" and "The Underworld and Wilderness Adventures"?

2. Are you considering translations of Darkest Dice into other languages; i.e., Science Fiction, Superheroes, Horror, etc.?

Y'r ob'd't,

You have just planted some wonderful seeds for me to tend to. Who knows what the future holds? Stay tuned, brave adventurer!

The coldness of my bones and heart is warmed by your favor.

On a serious note, while you didn't cover races, it's done easily enough:

Dwarves: +1 CON
Elves: +1 WIS
Half-Orcs: +1 STR
Halflings: +1 DEX
Humans: +1 Player's Choice

Y'r ob'd't

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.
