Bury Mary: The Great Lich's Bake Off

Watermarked PDF

You are an adventurer-baker seeking a powerful cooking artifact. The Lich is a powerful but ennui-ridden spellcaster who longs to die. They are once again hosting an interdimensional competition to craft the dish that will set their soul free. Prove yourself in a variety of baking challenges, and over several collaborative storytelling rounds, try to out-bake the other contestants, earn the artifact of your culinary dreams... and destroy the Lich's phylactery by giving them the taste they crave.

Bury Mary: The Great Lich's Bake Off is a game of fantastic invention and friendly collaboration, combining a love for the friendly competition of The Great British Bake Off with the fantasy tropes of games like Dungeons & Dragons. It is a GM-less game for up to seven players that uses the Powered by the Apocalypse ruleset to keep the focus on a forward-moving, cooperative narrative.

Using your own imagination and the tables provided in the book, create characters like these:

  • Blanche Schreveport, an incomprehensibly Southern Lich who achieved immortality by pickling her soul in a mayonaisse jar!
  • Beartrude, a runic blacksmith from the North Pole who seeks an artifact to ease the suffering of her ailing mother!
  • Orioleoli of the Neverending Woods, a young druid struggling to live a vegan lifestyle!
  • Valerie, a faerie witch whose transmutation magic results in unimaginable and unpredictable bakes!
  • Svetlana Rasputina-Smirnova, a Goetic summoner who hopes to steal Blanche's power to crush the imperialist West!

Was fortunate enough to playtest this game in its infancy. It is right up my alley - a mixture of weird, fantasy, and humor. The perfect game for parties, and for those who want to explore their creative side. [...]

(Full Disclosure: I beta tested this game several times) This is an excellent extension of the Apocalypse world system into a light, easy to play, one-shot experience. It adapts well to several different tones, and can be played with humor and horror [...]

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.
