So you bought BESM Fourth Edition and have played a few games but you find yourself looking for more complex combat mechanics but can't wait for Extras to come out? This is the product for you!

After making the Character Spreadsheets to help you build your character (see, I've been working on some optional rules and mechanics to help Game Masters and players enhance their gameplay experience for those who are looking to do more with the BESM 4th edition system.

These are not official rules or mechanics, they are rather suggestions for Game Masters to use for their games.

  • Optional Actions (like Hiding, Searching, Dodging)
  • Combat Mechanics (like Flanking, Fighting with Two Weapons, Grappling)
  • Adventuring Mechanics (like Travel pace, Holding your breath, Falling damage)

Please consider purchasing the BESM Extras book when it releases to support the official creators!

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.
