A Crucible For Silver


A Crucible For Silver is a simplified OSR rpg system with a grid based inventory, rules for running a mercenary company, 1d100 weird backgrounds, 1d100 weird trinkets, and 36 spells that scale with the caster's level.

This RPG takes inspiration from numerous other systems: Mausritter, Knave, Old-School Essentials, Into the Odd, Electric Bastionland, and Troika! 

Some features of the system:

It is a simplified Old School Renaissance system with three attributes and a roll under system.

Time is a pressing issue for the adventurer party with an integrated system that tracks time and resources from combat all the way up to a strategic faction turn called the Company Step where players can run their Mercenary Company and level up.

Combat is incredibly simple but still quite deep and strategic.

Inventory management is done with a a 10 by 10 grid that is filled with items like Tetris shapes. This is done via papercraft.

Player creation is simple and highly variable with 1d100 backgrounds, race as class, and 1d100 magical trinkets.

Finally I have created a leveling system that integrates downtime into the action economy of the system. You spend silver found on adventures, dungeon crawling, etc. on various activities and get back a percentage of that as XP.

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.
