I came to WT from a friend running a Civil War early supers game. He's also the same friend who worked on the Devil's Brigade supplement so he knew the systems and how they would play. It was an interesting, fun game. I think I might [...]

Ran this for a group of friends who are mainly newbies or used to freeform RPGs. They picked it up in minutes, and we had a great time. If you're looking for a game with a fun mechanic and a lot of internal flexibility, this is it. If you're looking fo [...]

After having played in one campaign of Wild Talents and run another, I think it's fair to give my view on it. Spoiler alert! I was in two campaigns of it. It's really really good. Wild Talents is the (slightly) generic version of the One Roll En [...]

I honestly think that this is the best superhero system I have ever come across. It's brilliance lies partly with the ORE (One-Roll Engine) system itself, which is a fast and simple system based on rolling a number of d10 (up to 10d10) and looki [...]

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.
