QAGS Second Edition is recommended for mature readers.

"QAGS is about fast, fun and generally cinematic gaming. Most of all, it is about a group of players being able to say 'Let's play that Babylon 5-meets-Buffy-meets-Fear Factor-meets-Super Lesbian Troopers Seventeen game tonight...' and then being able to create characters and a game within thirty minutes."--Conan McKegg,

QAGS: Play better games. Have more fun!

Witty and sharp, and everything it purports to be. QAGS is for those who don't want to be bogged down with complex mechanics, endless tables, charts, or lists, or any of that other impedimentia. If you want straight-ahead gaming at a fast pace [...]

QAGS is a simple and flexible game system. As the authors put it, it is aimed at modeling fiction, so the focus is on character interaction and narrative, rather than simulation. This puts it apart from some other generic RPG systems. The first [...]

It is the acronym for Quick Ass Game System, and that is pretty accurate. What is QAGS or more to the point why is there a QAGS? Well QAGS grew out of the same need that gave us Fudge, Fate and GURPS and even d20. QAGS though is a little [...]

QAGS (kwags) is likable and easy to learn. The cartoony artwork fits the friendly style of the text; it's as if one of your buddys is explaining the game to you, rather than reading dry text. The downside of this product is the language. The war [...]

First off, a word of warning – QAGS pulls no punches and handles some material in a very Adult manner. The rules read at PG-13. Although the system is an ideal one for children, I highly suggest that the rules information be disseminated by a respons [...]

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.
