Modos IconGame masters, player-characters, my friends!
You're afraid that this is the same thing that torments me:
a game of countless hit points, number-crunching,
faceless heroes, and no fellowship of players,
but it is not this game!

This game we play for:

  • Character design that begins with character concept, not numbers!
  • Opposed roll rules that mean low rolls aren't automatic failure!
  • Direct rewards for good roleplaying!
  • Abstract combat positions for your imagination, not the tabletop!
  • Action-based combat instead of turn-based combat!
  • Streamlined rules, great for adding house rules or rules modules!
  • On-the-fly GM features like one-second-monsters and the average-person rule!
  • Many more cool features that let you roleplay the game you want!

What is Modos RPG?  A simplified roleplaying system that creates ambiguities in order to allow players and game masters to fill the gaps with imagination.  Roleplaying games have historically tried to define things like hit points, damage, and attributes in a conrcrete way; this game leaves the definitions up to its players.

A universal conflict-resolution system allows most things (combat, skill-tests, social conflict) to be resolved in a uniform way, while leaving room for GMs to customize each experience.  Furthermore, the game rewards (and encourages) roleplaying in these situations with a direct bonus to die rolls and the hero point, a daily power designed by the player.

GMs will find that this system supports multi-genre play and encourages them to design their own adventures and new rules for sharing in "modules."  This makes it easy to tailor the game to a particular group's needs, and to find or prepare a new adventure each week.

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.
