Description:

Some places and items are so evil or filled with Chaos that exposure to them marks a character in a very real and difficult-to-cleanse way. Taint is evil. It is a corruption so deep that it warps the very plane of reality. A weapon used to slaughter thousands of innocents, a forest grown on land soaked in the blood of an evil deity, or a book bound in the flesh of an archfiend for his own horrible purposes, are all sources of taint. Taint makes evil a physical threat to the well-being of characters and can have a lasting impact on characters, even killing those who remain exposed too long.

Sanity is the natural mental state of ordinary life. Normal mental balance is endangered when characters confront horrors, entities, or activities that are shocking, unnatural, and bewildering. As a character encounters monsters, witnesses horrible acts, masters forbidden knowledge, or casts spells, his Sanity score, and his corresponding ability to function as a normal character, deteriorates. Soon, all that is left is a gibbering madman.

This 28 page supplement contains all the rules that GM's and Players need to add Taint and Sanity to their RuneQuest games.

Requires the use of the RuneQuest(TM) Main Rulebook available from Mongoose Publishing.

Solid product, as it is compatible with BRP in general I can se the use of this in many other game worlds than RQ. If you want to add horror feel to your game, take a look at this. With some tweaking it can be made to fit almost any game system. [...]

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.
