Description:

Down below the streets of New York City, there exists a world of wonder and adventure, unseen by those above. Magic courses like blood through veins made from steel tracks and transformers. The UnderWorld is home to the Homeless, to the Freaks, to the Junkmen and more. Steely-eyed Bravos hunt their prey in dark tunnels far below the subways, while brave Taggers scout new paths between the varied Domains, and mark trails for all to follow. Creatures of Legend walk the platforms below the city, and brilliant Artificers build inventions of bizarre science, borne of madness.

This is a world of heroes and villains...

of magic and romance...

of gods and monsters.

Unseen. Unknown. Unforgettable.

UnderWorld is an adventure game, usable for either table-top or live-action play. All you need are the guidelines presented in this book, and a handful of coins.

In 1999, game designer Gareth-Michael Skarka let gamers witness the design of an RPG from the beginning, via a column on RPGnet. The game, UnderWorld, was released in 2000 to critical acclaim, and sold out quickly. Now it is available again, in PDF via DTRPG.

This is a fun sourcebook which is easily incorporated into most game systems. It is ecclectic and humorous and yet very flexible and rule-lite, making it a good fit for almost any setting involving New York City, fantasy, and with pariah-like themes (Shad [...]

This is a cool little game with a setting that reminds me of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and a unique coin toss task resolution system. The coin system and setting may take some getting used to if you've only played RPGs with more mainstream trappings. The [...]

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.
