Premier Series: The Roleplaying Game of Dramatic Television

Watermarked PDF

Have you ever wanted to be able to play a roleplaying campaign that plays out like one of your favorite dramas on television? Now you can! With Premier Series you will create your own "show" to serve as the world of your roleplaying game, the players taking on the roles of the main cast and series writers, with the GM working to control things as the showrunner.

This book provides tools to help you create a compelling series pitch to get started, formulate on-going storylines, generate fully rounded dramatic characters, and more. Your episodic gaming sessions will allow PCs to adventure in daring action sequences, and confront each other in tense emotional struggles, all while pursuing greater goals as the series heroes or anti-heroes.

Premier Series is inspired by DramaSystem written by Robin D. Laws, who opened up the concept of fictional dramas serving as a roleplaying universe. For those familiar with that game, this product has some similar concepts, but is designed around more extensive storylines and more series focused plotlines.

Please note, this game requires each participant to have a standard deck of playing cards, and also works best with tokens available to distribute.

Technically, PrimeTime Adventures opened up the concept, predating DramaSystem by several years.

That's a good point! Primetime Adventures did open up television-as-roleplaying over a decade ago.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
