Any chance a Form Fillable Character Sheet will be available for download or included with the product?

Great idea, especially when everyone's playing online. I put one together quite quickly - it's probably not the smoothest, but get's the job done! You can find it at

On page 7, in the example of play, Player 2 walks up to the table and asks to be dealt in to the card game. The GM has her roll.. to play the piano? TBH that threw me a little. Did I miss something?

Hi Rick - nope, we did. We had an older example of play, and clearly we didn't change everything. Good catch! It should say roll Persuasion to be dealt in to the card game. How you should persuade a piano, I have no idea.

Can you tell more about the game system? Basic rolls and combat? Thank you!

Hi Alex - Thanks for asking! I could describe the game in very advertiser-ish language and try to get you to buy it, but instead we've got a Starter Edition that includes character creation, basic combat and inventory, and some weapons, gear, and animals so people can get a feel for the game before buying. Check it out at!

Thanks for the link to the quick start edition!

I couldn't find any indication of the difficulty ratings for talent checks, however. Did I miss something?

Hi Francois - Good call. We didn't originally include it in the Starter Edition because it's part of the GM section, but we've now got the page for the difficulty levels on

Hi everyone - I'm the lead designer of MBG. We're working on getting the PDF uploaded and cleared for sale right now. It will be included with purchases of the physical edition. If you've already purchased the physical edition and didn't get the PDF, shoot me an email at and I can get you a copy. If you would like the PDF sooner rather than later, you can head to our site, to check out where to get it.

The description states it is a PDF, yet the only purchase option is for the hard cover. Can you please clarify?

I too would be interested in an actual PDF of this, but not in a hardback book.

Hi Carl - we're working on getting that PDF cleared for sale right now. Once it is, it'll be included. If you already purchased the physical edition and didn't get a copy in PDF, let me know and I will get you one.

Hi Patrick - You should be able to purchase the PDF independently once it's cleared for sale by the DTRPG team, but in the meantime you can check our website,, to find other places to get a copy.

Product 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.
