White smoke rises when it’s time for the Trade Fair. The tribes and clans gather. Colonists from Port Morganti come too bringing some really special stuff. But no two years are the same. This year there’s a drought. Game is scarce. Dwarf zombies are creeping out of the caves near the trade grounds - maybe even eating young children. A magical rage infected barbarian hunter Mordain and he killed someone. Now he’s got to provide sons for the dead guy, so there’s got to be a wedding. Smoke rising against blue skies and autumn leaves? the clans gathering? a wedding in the offing? It’s a  picturesque surfacescape, but destiny projections aren’t that good for anyone here. It’s good you’re there on the scene with the party. Hear that terrified screaming above the ambient sounds of the Songbird Stones? That’s the bride. Start there.

Toys for the Sandbox is not a module, it is not a campaign setting, instead it is a framework for GMs to use to reinforce their own imaginations. Sometimes players zig when you expect them to zag, other times they take your plot point into a back alley and leave it penniless and bleeding. Each week we present a new location with a map and some flavor text. In addition we add 4 NPCs with a bit of history and a few simple thoughts on how to stat them for whatever game you are playing. There are also 6 plot hooks each with 3 ways to twist them. Added to that there is usually a table or two filled with rumors and encounters.

Great for use with Legends of Anglerre, Strands of Fate, Dungeon World, Risus: The Anything RPG, FUDGE, Harnworld, and easily adaptable to Dungeons, and Dragons, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Pathfinder, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, The One Ring, HERO, GURPS, BRP, Barebones Fantasy and many others.

Trade fairs and markets always have great potential for adventure, particularly if you enjoy intrigue and gathering rumours rather than merely being marched to the dungeon entrance... This one's particularly good, because it is the melting-pot m [...]

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.
