When are you going to do PoD or start shipping to the UK? Brexit 'restrictions' is a terrible excuse to not ship, no other company has any issue putting something in the post box and getting it over here. Or, you know, just set a PoD if you can't be bothered. I really want to support this game but with such a huge book, I really need a physical copy to do it and I find the unwillingness to ship to me really upsetting and offputting.

This is great - but it really needs a blank character sheet so it's easy to try this out?? Is one available anywhere?

Pretty complete for a QS.
Pretty clearly a retroclone of ICE's MERP, too. Including the trade dress.

Hey. The dowload links above (after one purchases it) show "Against_the_Darkmaster_QS_Deluxe_2.2.pdf" and "Quick_Start_Deluxe.pdf" but both download as the same file, "Quick_Start_Deluxe_2.0.pdf" Are there supposed to be two different files and/or a 2.2 (instead of 2.0) file? Thanks!

Hi, the Quick_Start_Deluxe_2.0.pdf is the correct file, not sure how the other versions got there, we'll look into it. Sorry for the inconvenience!

This looks intriguing! I pray you don't ruin the final product with hideous background art on every page. If the final product sticks to Black text on White background and the beautiful line art as in this Quick Start then I'll definitely spring for the hard copy when it comes out.

Very good game. Only a part of what is to come but very well thought out with a fantastic flavour and some of the best spells & chants I have seen in an RPG. If you liked MERP you will love this.

Old school MERP with 2019 flavor. This will probably be the next system I will use for my RP game session. Planing to try it soon, I can't wait to see the full release of it!

Format

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.
