The Kickstarter for the full version of this game is live - ends late July 2019!

This is a game for Game Masters (GMs) of any experience level, designed to be accessible to players who may be entirely unfamiliar with Table Top Role Playing Games (TTRPGs). Character creation is optional and should take no longer than five minutes. Character progression is commodity-based, meaning there is no need to track or accrue experience points or comprehend sprawling research trees. Instead you become more capable by purchasing or collecting objects from your environment.

After a cursory read through the rule-set, you could start a game session with another player without them needing to understand the mechanics of the game at all. The dreamlike nature of the setting lends itself to learning and discovery through play.

‘Dreamlike’ is a term that belies the propensity for this game to digress into something terrifying and nightmarish. The environments you will explore within the Asphodel Complex are often common place despite being uncanny - environments that become more clearly simulacra the longer you consider them and more frightening and odd the closer you press and test them.

Players must either take their characters on a quest searching for an escape from the Asphodel Complex, or they will remain trapped in an endless cycle of dreams intercut with lucid interludes and terrible horrors.

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.
