Wayfarers (Original 2008 version)


This book contains a complete roleplaying game. The product of decades of evolution and gameplay, Wayfarers is an elegant mix of 'old school' and 'new school' sensibilities.

A focused skill system enables players to create classical archetypes such as the wizard, warrior, priest or rogue, or to construct an entirely unique persona. With dozens of interesting skills, four distinct types of magic, and over 500 spells, the possibilities for characters are limitless.

For the Game Master, this sourcebook includes hundreds of detailed creatures, enchanted items, useful analysis, optional rules, and the vivid World of Twylos campaign setting. The customizable system makes creating and running adventures both fun and exciting.

This book is all you need! Grab your dice. Your destiny awaits ...for good or ill.

Wayfarers is honestly one of my favorite fantasy D20 systems, because it does clever things. For example, there are two different types of skills: disciplines and proficiencies. With proficiencies you have to have the proficiency to do it (i.e. if you [...]

I have longed for a game that offered the D&D feel but previous and current incarnations of the D&D mechanics never quite did it for me. Wayfarers is no clone and has a personality of its own but yet offers the familiarity I was looking for. At [...]

Wayfarers is a hefty new RPG from Ye Olde Gaming Companye. Like many d20 products of the last few years, Wayfarers is a fantasy RPG using the Open Gamin License, but that is only a surface similarity and something that Wayfarers goes to some length to [...]

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.
