House of Keys is a story roleplaying game about confusion and misdirection. Set inside an enigmatic mansion, riddled with cryptic messages, the game tells the story of fantasy adventurers unable to escape a trap laid centuries ago by unseen forces. Characters are adventurers at the end of a quest unable to escape a house of apparitions, dead-ends, eerie sounds, locked rooms, puzzles, and shifting corridors. How will they escape when all hope seems lost?

House of Keys draws upon the lore of the Iron Medusa game series, of which this is the first game. Set in the Slavic-inspired fantasy world of Ducrisa, each game explores a unique part of the setting. In this particular instance, an abandoned mansion draws the characters into a trap they may never escape from, as magical forces and spirits pin the player characters into an ever-shrinking (metaphorical) noose.

Each game in the Protocol Squared series includes rules for set-up and play for 4 or more players (though 3 is possible, just not recommended). This is the next step in the Protocol game series, involving more details, world information, character classes, and so on. This document includes 15 classes, numerous backgrounds, and 30 pages of world information.

File Size:

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.
