Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames

Watermarked PDF

Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames is a diceless, GMless storygame. 

In Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames, you and your playmates explore the life and times of an immortal (or extremely long-lived) Hermit who lives, either by choice, circumstance, or a combination of the two, in the liminal gap between the “mundane” world and the wide, untamed unknown. 

Every once in a while, sometimes every few years, sometimes once a decade, sometimes once a century, the Hermit gets visitors. Travelers, adventurers, investigators, and wanderers pass through on their way to deal with important matters of their own. Most stay for a very short while, a night or two, a week at most. A precious few stick around for longer, perhaps trading help around the house and the garden for a humble shelter away from the bustle of the world, a place to hide from their past, or the Hermit’s valuable tutelage. Everyone moves on eventually, of course, leaving our magical recluse to their own thoughts and devices.

Shut Your Eyes And You’ll Burst Into Flames is primarily concerned with those brief interruptions of the Hermit’s solitude when somebody (this group of adventurers, or that fated hero, or that couple of political dissidents on the run) stumbles across their home in their travels and petitions them for aid. Each distinct “round” of the game focuses on one such occurrence, but the brief story that emerges in any given round can absolutely involve the past and the future in whatever ways you and your playmates find to be most interesting.

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.
