This system, if one can call it that, is minimalist. 4 testable attributes, one mechanically useful, 1d6 roll low.
There's no exemplar character sheet, not that any old 3x5 card won't fit all the data, and it's 1.33 pages of text, and about 0.66 pages of art. It's not even laid out to fold to a nice 5.5x8.5 inch booklet, as the "inside" is 3 columns. I had no issues making sense of it, but it's so simple, and so short, that it's only real artistic merit is the table of "how we wound up there"... I think this is written for the "And sometimes we think about rolling the dice" crowd.
In fact, the heart of the system could easily fit in the review box - it may be minimalist, but It is just enough to call a "mechanic"...
it was a vaguely interesting 3 minute read; if it were to include a few more pages - it needs an example character, it needs an example for the 4 task modes, and it needs some setting ideas and some story-seeds, then it might be worthwhile....See more

This pdf is barely than 2 pages long and seems to stop right in the middle of character creation. Is it all there? I am a Burroughs fan but sadly cannot make use of this.

Hello Laura. The PDF is only two pages long, it is a minimalist game, aimed at quick and casual games, and it is not friendly for beginners, because it works with the idea that the participants already have a knowledge about the RPG and the theme.

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.
