Vincent Raven's Bones RPG... Now available from Precis Intermedia in its original form.

BONES is a fantasy roleplaying game in which characters, monsters, equipment, and obstacles are represented by customized six-sided dice. Simple, elegant mechanics keep the game moving and the action tight, and the rules include player narrative control, a mechanism for adjudicating actions and events that take place between play sessions and a modular system for creating non-player characters and monsters on the fly. With a magic system that allows complete customization, BONES belongs at your gaming table or at least in your collection. Even the GM gets to play. Embrace the dice and face your destiny!

Use with blank six-sided dice (and labels) or regular six-sided dice (both available from Precis Intermedia).

Bones is a great concept that is either under-developed as a story, or it is crushed under the weight of it's own concept. Now, the concept of making the dice themselves your character "sheet" is a novel approach, and that keeps the game from [...]

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.
