Building Adventures
Regular price: $5.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF
A minimalist 96-page guide to creating memorable stories for any tabletop roleplaying system or setting. Building Adventures is a system-agnostic book about respecting player creativity and agency while reducing the burden of gamemaster preparation. There is a way to create tabletop roleplaying scenarios that don’t require the gamemaster to be ready for every possibility, without restricting players to a limited number of choices and actions. The gamemaster begins by setting an adventure goal, then allowing players to make the their own decisions and pursue that goal in their own way. Building Adventures is broken into eight sections: Introduction: A brief overview of what this book is about, the concepts that will be discussed, and ways that you can put it to use in building adventur...

Building Characters
Regular price: $5.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF
A toolkit for creating tabletop roleplaying elements for any system, setting, or genre. Building Characters explores what goes into crafting memorable and enjoyable tabletop roleplaying character backgrounds. The book looks at how they influence, and are influenced by, the worldbuilding, adventures, and rules of a tabletop roleplaying game. By the end you’ll have an entire toolkit full of ideas to work with and apply regardless of the system, setting, or genre you’re playing in. Building Characters is system-agnostic, meaning is was not written for one specific tabletop roleplaying game. It’s not exclusively for Dungeons & Dragons, Fate, Vampire the Masquerade, Call of Cthulhu, or any other particular game. The examples are high-level and generic, allowin...

Building Monsters
Regular price: $5.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF
A minimalist 96-page guide to creating memorable adversaries for any tabletop roleplaying system or setting. Books filled with pregenerated monsters are a staple of tabletop roleplaying. Not just for fantasy, either. Modern horror needs its share of terrifying creatures. Science fiction needs aliens and extradimensional beings. Even superheroes get their share of strange mutations and scientific experiments gone awry. Endless volumes have been written on how to generate statistics for the system of your choice and generate new and original creatures. Building Monsters takes a different approach. In this book, we’ll look at monsters as full-fledged characters. We’ll show you how to develop back stories, and motivations for their actions. By doing this, you’ll have more than somethi...

Building Theme
Regular price: $5.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF
A minimalist 96-page guide to creating memorable stories for any tabletop roleplaying system or setting. When discussing any other form of storytelling, the concept of theme will eventually come up. It doesn’t matter if the medium is a novel, a film, a television series, even a comic book or a song. The people having the discussion might be writers, readers, critics, or academics. Opinions will be exchanged about what the deeper meaning of the story is, and what the author of the piece was trying to say. Roleplaying games are different in structure, and the needs of the story, the gamemaster, and the players are unique. Adventures are still stories. Embracing theme can be an easy way to make those stories even better. It’s infinitely more interesting when the character...

Building Worlds
Regular price: $5.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF
A minimalist 96-page guide to help you create memorable settings for any tabletop roleplaying system. Worldbuilding can be a lot of fun. Whether you're planning a campaign, designing your own tabletop roleplaying game, or just exercising your creativity with no set purpose in mind, developing a setting of your very own is deeply satisfying. You can spend hours, days, or years adding details and creating a world with no limits but your imagination. Building Worlds isn’t a book full of checklists and random tables. This is about focusing your efforts, and assembling the key, critical elements needed in order to run compelling and richly-textured adventures. It can lean more toward top-down or bottom up design, but what matters most is your intention. Know the problem that you’re solvi...

Names and Their Meaning

Please read this product description carefully. Look at the preview. It's probably not what you'd expect it to be based on the title. Tabletop roleplaying has instilled in me three things: a love of history, a love of words, and a love of lists. While other people gravitated toward Appendix N, what I loved most about the 1st Edition Dungeon Master’s Guide were the tables and appendices filled with all manner of vocabulary that was new to me. Forms of government! Royal and noble titles! A person’s interests, collections, and approach to materialism! That stuff sparked me imagination, and sent me off in search of context for those words. That in turn led to the creation of some interesting player characters and oddly specific bits of worldbuilding. When I came acr...

Please read this product description carefully. Look at the preview. It's probably not what you'd expect it to be based on the title. Can we just take a moment to reflect on what an amazingly pulpy name Trench Johnson is? It sounds as if he should be fighting crime alongside Doc Savage or the Shadow, or getting beaten up in a rain-slick alleyway by Mike Hammer or Sam Spade. I can’t find anything on him other than the fact that he wrote this book, and was apparently an Englishman that lived during the Victorian era. There are no other titles credited to his name. We are free, then, to imagine him to be whatever manner of intrepid adventurer, hardboiled detective, or steampunk occultist we choose. It only adds more joy to the madness that is this hefty volume. I overlooked this book twi...

"You Have Purchased This Product"

Apparently I don't have a single product in the bundle.

Did I miss a canonical name change memo?

I'm in the same boat... "You Have Purchased This Product"
Can't download anything and nothing showing as purchased.
Is this something that can be addressed?
Thanks!

Was this ever resolved? I'm thinking about getting this and want to make sure I don't have any problems.

You may have purchased this bundle when the older editions of some of these books were in it. Those editions aren't available, and were replaced by newer editions as they became available.

People have been purchasing the bundle and downloading it without issue.

If you ever have difficulty completing a purchase or downloading items, you can contact customer service. They don't always see these comments (neither do publishers) and it's not an issue that publishers can resolve.

If you created new editions of the books, why didn't you create a new edition bundle?

By screwing all this up you basically made downloading the product for your original editions broken---you know, for those of us who purchased the original bundle of books.

Maybe you haven't noticed before, but publishers actually indicate new editions when published.

Thanks for nothing.

Hey there,

what is the principal difference compared to the Foragers Guild Guides? What do you suggest is better for GMs?

Kind Regads,
Michael

These are very generic, and look at elements of storytelling that apply to everything from tabletop roleplaying games to fiction to screenwriting. The Foragers Guild Guides are specifically targeted at fantasy roleplaying games and go a bit deeper in that direction.

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
DLP-910B
Format
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.
