Dragon Age RPG Set One Cover Image

Game: Dragon Age RPG

Free Start: Quick Start Guide

The Dragon Age RPG is based on BioWare's popular Dragon Age RPG franchise, and brings the dark and gritty world of Thedas to your gaming table. This Quickstart Guide - originally featured on Free RPG Day - features rules, an adventure, and pre-generated characters so you can jump right into the action. 
DC Adventures Hero's Handbook Cover

Game: DC Adventures (with Mutants & Masterminds 3rd Edition Rules)

Free Start: Quick Start PDF

The county fair is being held in Smallville this year and Superboy, the town's famous local hero, is invited as guest of honor. But it's not all prize pigs and cotton candy, as Knockout has come to the fair, and she's aiming to make a big impression!

The DC ADVENTURES Quick Start includes an explanation of the rules, full game statistics for Superboy and Knockout, and a short adventure featuring a brawl at the county fair, so you can jump right in to the action.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Cover Image

Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying

Free Start: Quickstart PDF

These ENnie Award-winning Quick-Start rules and the adventure Journey to King’s Landing are mean to be your introduction to both the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game and to the fantasy world detailed in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series of novels.

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying is about Machiavellian court politics, family alliances and enmities, the rise and fall of kingdoms, and the clash of armies, but it is also about honor and duty, family, the responsibilities of leadership, love and loss; tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war, great victories, and terrible defeats. It’s about knights, both false and true... and it’s about dragons.

Welcome to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, and remember the words of House Stark: “Winter is coming.”

Excellent resource for M&M, and very good art, as well. Really almost a must-have for players as well as GM's, especially if you want to create certain characters, like martial artists. My only quibble is some of this information should have been in the [...]

Not sure what I expecting when I brought this item but with the other reviews I thought I was going to get something great but I did not find much with the 'covers' that I could use. LIKED: Some great ideas for use in a M&M game. [...]

I'm not too big on buying splat books, especially for supers games or games that I can apply as universal systems (whether or not that's their intention), but I'd have to make a HUGE exception with the Mastermind's Manual. There are options up the wazoo [...]

Well worth the money! Using some of the optional rules in this basically create a D20 version of the HERO system. This is the best of all worlds! I would highly recommend it. LIKED: Lots of optional rules. DISLIKED: Informati [...]

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.
