Description:

Play the game inspired by Beowulf and the Mahabharata, the King of Elfland's Daughter and the Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Contes du Temps Passé and the Thousand and One Nights, the Brothers Grimm and Baba Yaga.


In Seven Leagues, you assume the role of a fairy-tale characters--not just those of the classic stories of Perrault or Fontaine, but also inspired by modern tales of enchantment, Assume the role of fairy-tale characters--from the classic stories of Perrault or Fontaine, to modern tales of enchantment, from Mirrormask to Fables, Labyrinth to Neverwhere. Your character will enjoy powers and limitations well beyond those of the Mortals telling their stories--the only limit is your imagination.

Seven Leagues uses an extremely simple system of character creation based on words and narration. If you have a little imagination, can write a grocery list, and can add to 13, you can make a character in about 5 minutes. Roll 13, Seven Leagues' elegant action system, rewards good descriptions, not nitpicking over a complex set of rules.

Seven Leagues includes sample characters, Provinces of Faerie, and Antagonists, as well as three short adventures. Download the demo (2.1 MB).

 

This fine piece of writing and game design aims at putting the participants into the shoes of fairy tale characters, with a distinct sense of the weird, the wonderful and the woeful (not to mention the hilarious).

The mechanics are light yet evocative and intuitive, significantly more so than in the vast majority of available products.

All in all, it is a bold departure from run-of-the-mill fantasy gaming, a respectful homage to the fairy tale genre (literary criticism is a natural, painless part of the actual practice) and a great human experience.

Seldom will the expression "good, clean fun" be more appropriate.

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.
