 The Loss in Hanging Well
 Regular price: $0.79
 Bundle price: $0.00

In old Rict, pain haunts every home, fear its sloping lanes. The Officials murder freely.

But uneasily, for they themselves may be next: in Hanging Well, where daemons dwell. Those who choose vengeance go sooner; those who seek other paths follow the Hope.

But now the Hope too is to be hung...

The Loss in Hanging Well is an adventure with five locations, a map and a set of protagonists, all folding into a pocket format.

The elements weave into a chase through the deeps onto the edge of a society, offering wily adventurers the secret of a feared site, access to outlandish beings and opportunities among two emerging peoples. The material is suitable for rules-light gaming and designed for easy adaptation to various settings and systems, describing the key elements with a degree of uncertainty in terms open to interpretation. It assumes that dice are used for random numbers, but also offers a diceless number generator.

The adventure is especially well-suited to isophasmic light, a compact approach to gaming used in the creation of the profiles. As with isophasmic light, it is laid out for use as a PolyP booklet, to make it easier to play spontaneously and on the move.

Both The Loss in Hanging Well and isophasmic light are also part of the main bundle, along with Landscape: The Acrid Well and Landscape: The Vermian Maze, which could be used to replace both the Moot Sump and the Underdelta.

 The Winds of Foul Crack
 Regular price: $0.79
 Bundle price: $0.53

Times are good; tables full. Loads roll in over the Caustic Plains from New Churning, where the Young Wind turns great drives and wilds grow tame. New work comes to older realms; new crafts form. Bright vistas stretch away.

Spirit of the age? That's canny Old Wranglie. Pondering even now...

The Winds of Foul Crack is an adventure with five locations, a map and a set of protagonists, all folding into a pocket format.

The elements together allow wily adventurers to explore a change across the wilds of a harsh plain, offering the fruits of a great mind, opportunity with pioneers and knowledge of a potentially apocalyptic event. The material is suitable for rules-light gaming and designed for easy adaptation to various settings and systems, describing the key elements with a degree of uncertainty in terms open to interpretation. It assumes that dice are used for random numbers, but also offers a diceless number generator.

The adventure is especially well-suited to isophasmic light, a compact approach to gaming used in the creation of the profiles. As with isophasmic light, it is laid out for use as a PolyP booklet, to make it easier to play spontaneously and on the move.

The Winds of Foul Crack is the second adventure in the series, the first being The Lust in Skew Hollow - a strange quest.

Both of these adventures - as well as isophasmic light - are also part of the main bundle, along with Narrative: Abandoned Space, which can be used to develop the events further, and Being: More or Less Fantastical Olde Worlde Technologies, which can be used to inspire and detail the weird devices at Old Wranglie's and in the drives of New Churning.

 The Lust in Skew Hollow
 Regular price: $0.79
 Bundle price: $0.53

The Ducal Orb is found! But the Duke..?

Does this noble of ancient lineage ride the Wasted Glades while a common captain rules the Tower? Aye...

They call the Duke 'the Heartless', prince fallen to lust; the Schemer stole that heart and keeps it still: in a jar.

But now the Tower calls the willing...

The Lust in Skew Hollow is an adventure with five locations, a map and a set of protagonists, all folding into a pocket format.

The elements weave into a quest for a failing realm on a lonely coast, offering wily adventurers access to powerful figures, an altered people and a source of fuel, as well as knowledge of nefarious scheming. The material is suitable for rules-light gaming and designed for easy adaptation to various settings and systems, describing the key elements with a degree of uncertainty in terms open to interpretation. It assumes that dice are used for random numbers, but also offers a diceless number generator.

The adventure is especially well-suited to isophasmic light, a compact approach to gaming used in the creation of the profiles. As with isophasmic light, it is laid out for use as a PolyP booklet, to make it easier to play spontaneously and on the move.

Both The Lust in Skew Hollow and isophasmic light are also part of the main bundle, along with Narrative: Abandoned Space and Elaboration: Structure & Surface, which can be used to add more detail and develop the events.

 isophasmic light
 Regular price: $0.00
 Bundle price: $0.53

isophasmic is a tabletop roleplaying game for two or more people, as well as a system for resolving fictional problems.

Inspired by approaches to early adventure gaming, it provides a set of simple tools for exploring a shared world. Specific rules are created on the fly, allowing new players to jump in straight away, but also offering a challenge to more experienced gamers.

This version - light - is laid out for printing and folding into a PolyP booklet, two a time, to make it easier to play spontaneously and on the move. It can be copied for anyone else interested in joining in, and it's designed for open play, to help groups grow.

It's completely free, not even Pay What You Want. Download it, print it, give the second to a friend. And actually play it - that's what it's for. If you really do like it, and you find yourself nodding along, or it blows your mind and changes the way you game forever, you can always check out the other items in the range, or take the plunge with the main bundle.

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
PP0003POCKAD
Format
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.
