This product is part of the “DrivethruRPG Priorities Sale!” 

As demonstrated by the defense of abhorrent material designed to offend victims of sexual assault, DrivethruRPG has taken a firm stance that the status quo which makes victims out to be attackers, and staunchly defends “free speech” so long as it’s comfortable for them. We’ve been asked to discuss a release before publication, because it might hurt the delicate sensitivities of a hate group. So this defense doesn’t go both ways. 

It’s important to note when priorities favor abusers over victims. Victims might be allowed speaking, but so long as their speech is shut down and framed as abuse, it might as well not even be speech. 

Typically, we try our best to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable with our work. But, in light of DrivethruRPG’s statement, we felt we would price ourselves beyond reasonable access. If we remove our titles, the only thing that happens is, we disappear. That’s what they want. So with this DrivethruRPG Priorities Sale, you can be aware that our speech exists, without actually hearing what we’re saying.

I remember the Void; the other side, and all the horrible ‘life' there. But that's brief, only after I've died and the memory never lingers long. I prefer the happy memories. My sucesses and my accomplishments, which are many. I am exceptional in every way and I use my body, every life time, as a vessal for my brilliance and my cunning. I draw on the skills from one hundred life times of success. The only thing I can't control is other people. And so it is, an army of well trained warriors holds not a candle to me, but one person can bring me to my knees. After all, it isn't about win or lose in cards or life. It's about what you're willing to put on the line while you play.

-Sahar, The Storyteller

What you'll find inside:

- Game rules that focus on conflict escalation and sacrifice, the real stuggle for immortals.
- A game that works well in a four hour block of time, or can be played over weeks, months, or years.
- Game action that involves improvised flashbacks to past lives, in order to influence current events.
- A game which supports stories of action, romance, politics, mystery, intrigue, and combat.

Amaranthine – A Review This is another great game from Machine Age Productions. Despite coming to this game with the expectation of it being rather rules light and being wrong, this game has a lot to offer and a lot to bring to the table. PROS: [...]

Perceptions If you are a gamer like myself. The word “romance” almost instantly turns you off from any RPG game. Commonly, romance is considered a side plot element within stories told around the table top. Don’t let the word “romance” though [...]

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.
