The Adventures Dark and Deep™ Players Manual contains all the rules you need to create and run a character; character classes, races, spells, rules for combat, equipment, social class, skills, and much more.

The Players Manual is the first core rulebook for the Adventures Dark and Deep™ game, an expansion and revision of the original 1st Edition rules that defined the role-playing hobby for a decade. Based on the original plans for expanding the game, Adventures Dark and Deep™ gives you new character classes like the jester, savant, mystic, and mountebank; new spells; a new combat system; new monsters; rules for weather and natural hazards; new magic items, and tons more. And it's all compatible with most old-school games, so you can use it with all your old and new adventures, settings, and supplements.

If you liked 1st Edition, you'll love Adventures Dark and Deep™.

Is the omission of strength limits for human females vs human males intentional or accidental? Compared to all the other races that have that , this omission seems odd.

All humans can have 3-18 in all ability scores. The only difference between male and female humans is exceptional strength for fighters; females can only go up to 18/50, while males can go up to 18/00.

The rules for fighting with multiple weapons on p.89 of the player's manual seem odd, as they suggest that high Dex makes you worse (see the example of a Dex 17 fighter below the table explaining how cumulative penalties work). In the original DMG p.70, Gygax had a -2/-4 penalty, improved by reaction/attack adj. for high Dex, with the proviso that the positive modifier could only cancel a penalty and never gave a bonus to hit. Is the intention here to build on this system?

I really want to buy this, but I do nearly everything on my laptop with customization and heavy use of cut and paste.

Since the DRM on this prevents this (if I understood the review and sidebars), I cannot buy the PDF. It's not that I care about the DRM per-se, if there were another form like in software via keys etc, I would be fine - but limiting copy/paste impacts usability for me.

There is an irony for those like me who are waiting to buy this...

Man, people really have to start putting in actual useful content in more of these previews. No offense, folks, but the cover, frontispiece, set-up page, table of contents, foreword and Page 1 of the introduction is not giving me any reasons to buy.

What kind of info would you like to know? I'll try to get you the info you desire (if I remember to check back to the site in a reasonable amount of time).

A sample of how actual rules are written and presented would be useful, especially if the sample shows how this rule set sets itself apart from its close competitors. A page or two from the character classes section showing how one familiar class is handled. Maybe a page or two each from the spells, combat and skills sections. With so many versions of the old game available, and this being one of the more expensive, it would help to see what makes it special--a table of contents and introductory material really don't accomplish that.

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.
