Anarcha Australis RAW

Multiple File Formats
Suggested Price $0.00


After the Total Economic Collapse of 1993, Australia became an anarchy, plagued by ethanol-fuelled biker gangs and Ronin from the north. Twenty-seven years later, how will you survive in the ruins of the Great Southern Land?

Anarcha Australis is a draft manuscript of a game I wrote up in 1992, emailed to someone, and then lost. Twenty-five years later, I stumbled upon a copy floating around the Internet!

I'm presenting it here as a manuscript of historical interest, but be warned it's by no means complete or polished. There's a reason this is the RAW version. There are a lot of missing pieces and rough edges. I'm ofering it as a PWYW product, so feel free to maybe leave a tip if you found and enjoyed the game in the intervening years, or if you'd just like to support me and my other work — but don't feel obliged!

This product includes a formatted PDF (with layers, so you can turn off the page texture), and the original text file.

I may clean up the rules and try to turn it into a complete game at some point, but I have no idea when that will be.

I still have the .txt file version of this game, I don't know where I found it back in '99. I've been itching to play it, and maybe now with a PDF version I'll finally be able to do it. Thank you!

The PDF might be a bit easier to reference, but this edition has exactly the same content as the original .txt file, errors and all. I only rediscovered it myself recently, and thought it would be fun to release an unaltered version as a historical curiosity.

I have started the process of cleaning it up, adding, expanding, and revising material in order to make a complete edition (BBQ, not RAW), but it probably won't be ready for a while yet...

*tests with tongs*

Nah, still raw... :/

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.
