I thought it was a great starter to see if the kids would be interested and gauge whether I should try more RPG-type games with them. It was a success! I learned that it was a little scary for my 4 y/o so I'm going to try creating my own advent [...]

We've tried several RPG's for kids, but so far, my children have liked rpgKids the best. Some reasons why they responded well to it: First, the entire ruleset comprises 4 pages, with one page of optional rules. The rest of the PDF gives advice o [...]

I played this with our 5 year old over the weekend. He looked after 4 characters and I did the GMing. We both had a brilliant time and he did not want to stop playing it. The rpg rules themselves need some work to make them clearer to read as to be rea [...]

I have very little experience with Rpg's and I was able to understand this game enough to run a campaign with my kids + their cousins and some adults in the mix! Very fun, very simple. Great for kids and their parents. My girls keep wanting to k [...]

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.
