Very good game. Only a part of what is to come but very well thought out with a fantastic flavour and some of the best spells & chants I have seen in an RPG. If you liked MERP you will love this.

Old school MERP with 2019 flavor. This will probably be the next system I will use for my RP game session. Planing to try it soon, I can't wait to see the full release of it!

Being an old MERP player, I've also been following this project with some interest. I'd like to mention that there are a few typos on the backcover (Sanderon, ispired, a mix of all the above ...) - you might want to fix those.

Thank you, we've taken note and we're already working on a small update to fix those and a few other typos!

This looks really good, can't wait to give it a try! Any chance for a form-fillable PDF character sheet, though? That'd come in handy when I prepare pre-gen characters for our group.

Thank you! That's a great idea, we'll see what we can do.

Have been following the development with excitement, it's great to have this awesome version now! Not only the clever rules, the whole "atmosphere" of this quickstart just makes me want to play it as soon as possible.

Just a note: the rule system tag "OSR" might be a bit misleading to some, as VsD is not based on old versions of the oldest RPG, but rather will make you feel right at home if you're familiar with RM, MERP or HARP.

Nikola S April 24, 2019 8:56 am UTC

Thanks a lot!
Yeah, we see what you mean, we'll check if it's still possible to change the rule system tag.

There is more to the OSR than just D&D-clones.
Customer avatar
Raoul H April 24, 2019 2:37 pm UTC
PURCHASER
Well, I know, but quite a lot of people do think of D&D first when hearing OSR, and so I said it could be misleading for some of those.

Will there be a POD option in the future?
Customer avatar
Matt S April 23, 2019 8:50 pm UTC
PURCHASER
It's only a quickstart for an upcoming kickstarter... POD would make no sense.
Customer avatar
Tamás I April 24, 2019 6:49 am UTC
PURCHASER
Actually, it would. The Kickstarter is still far away and in the meantime we're planning to playtest vsD with my group. A softcover PoD would come handy, since most print shops don't do it well or ask for a small fortune, leaving one with spiralbound as the only viable option.

We're still considering it, it might be possible but for the moment we're going for pdf only.

Format
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.
