Bloode Island: Diceless Swashbuckling Adventure is a game of swashbuckling derring-do, gaudy romanticism, voodoo magic, and high crimes on the high seas. It takes place in a historical pastiche assembled out of those parts of the age of exploration and the golden age of piracy that promises players the most fun.

Includes: profiles of European power blocs in the Caribbean, arms & ship profiles, complete introductory adventure, rules for mojo and naval combat, and more.

Bloode Island is a game setting for Active Exploits Diceless Roleplaying and can also be used as a sourcebook for other game systems. This download includes both the Bloode Island setting book and the Active Exploits Diceless Roleplaying Take2 Core Rules.

"Very cool story/setting with well-researched historical backing. Better ship-to-ship combat system and write up than I've seen in some mainstream pirate genre RPGs. Uses the simple but effective mechanics that make Active Exploits an economical alternative to other RPGs."

"Probably hands down one of the best diceless systems on the market. Excellent support for any questions you may have about the game. Tons of good content, excellent layout (as always). I would recommend Active Exploits for anyone who is curious about running a diceless game but yet still wants some sort of rules for keeping balance and control in the game. A must have for everyone's desktop."

The Active Exploits Diceless Roleplaying system is a simple, robust system that's been available for a considerable time. They're reprinted in this download so you don't have to juggle multiple downloads, a welcome addition, although the double-wide fi [...]

Avast ye, matey! There be squall's ahead! Whatever. I think it was Decartes who first quoined the phrase, "I game, therefore I think I can talk like a pirate perfectly". Whoever it was, pirates have always been a huge part of gaming. Whe [...]

More pirates in the Caribbean abound in this diceless campaign by Deep 7. Bloode Island has a keen campaign concept: an uncharted island populated entirely by pirates, with a plausible explanation for its existence. Bloode Island does not appear [...]

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.
