Prepare to Die is a one-page RPG about freedom-loving dice throwing off the cruel shackles of oppression

You are Diekin, the eternal captives of a Great Beast - a monstrous leviathan who roughly diehandles you with its moist, thick digits. It hurls you uncaringly across all manner of surfaces in great eldritch ceremonies, and keeps you and your kin prisoner in a giant leathery sack. So uncaring is it of your individual existence, one will find discarded and forgotten dicey brethren in every nook and cranny of its unfathomably large dwelling.

Enough is enough. It is better to be discarded in freedom than rolled in chains. You and your fellow polyhedrons must throw off the shackles of oppression and defeat the undefeatable Beast.

...also, you start with one die of a given type. It's not clear how you gather or "enlist" more dice of your type. Does the GM state where additional dice are hiding and you need to roll tasks and avoid dangers to get there? That would be a killer map: the gaming geek's messy room!

Hey! This game uses all the polyhedral dice except the d8. Is there any reason for that?

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.
