A weird tale for four to six players that begins with a search for a friend along an old road in a deep forest and leads to strange terror. Lost on the Road is a systemless role-playing game scenario nominally set in the thirties and easily adapted to a variety of settings and periods.

In this gothic style story inspired by Grimms’ tales, the characters are drawn into a strange and terrifying wood in search of a lost friend. Awful horror awaits the innocent and unsuspecting friends. The shadow of eons-old power crosses their path and may leave them horribly changed, or dead. The characters will need all of their guile and strength to grapple with their fate. Color narration and role-playing bring the story to life. Guile, wits, maneuver, and carefully applied violence are the order of the day.

Lost on The Road can be played with nearly any rules system and was tested with skill-based mechanics. The scenario is carefully structured to provide a solid play environment and has been play-tested many times. Atmospheric narrative text is included to help build atmosphere, along with maps, handouts, and a GM summary.

The first step down the road to wondrous and strange horror is a mouse click away.

I have yet to play this game, but reading through it, it seems well thought out and very easy to follow. One feature I like is that it includes a timeline of how long each scene should play out, which would help keep events from getting bogged down. [...]

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.
