The Dark West

Watermarked PDF

The sun is hot, the wilderness wide, and the guns are smoking. Welcome to The Dark West. The Dark West is a pen and paper role playing game set in the old west. It uses a new game system designed by Noah Patterson called The Micro RPG System. What is a Micro RPG? Well, it is a pen and paper role playing game that is simple and fast enough for even the busiest gamer to pick up and play. This short and simple rule book will give you all you need to play games set in the old west. All YOU need is a deck of playing cards, 2 six sided dice, and a few friends. All games in the Micro RPG series are standalone games, but can also be combined with other games in the series. The Dark West was published under the supervision of WitchWorks Magazine Ltd.

I got this book recently and when we didn't have enough people to play our regular game, we decided to give this a try. We had a lot of fun. None of us had played it before and we managed to get through character creation quickly. While it will never be my favorite system, it is a good system if you want to play something with minimal fuss quickly. The system of card drawing was an interesting addition that added a unique component.

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.
