Horror gaming that’s easy and exciting- it’s…  4Saken!

“Jamie?  Dave?  Where are you guys?  They must be in that dark cabin up ahead…”

Are you a fan of exciting horror cinema?  Does your top ten favorites include Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Evil Dead, The Fog, They Live, An American Werewolf in London, Gremlins, The Fly, Re-Animator, Night of the Living Dead or 30 Days of Night?  Then 4Saken from Purple Duck Games might just be the tabletop role-playing game for you!   Based on the popular 4C System for superhero roleplaying, 4Saken is a toolkit for crafting and playing your own horror-genre games, all nicely contained in less than 100 pages, scary stories and bone-chilling art included!  Players take on the role of Survivors, people just a little bit better than the ordinary potential victim strolling around, who get caught up in the strange, mysterious and deadly events that are taking place just beyond the prosaic veneer of peaceful everyday life… which is why the authorities don’t believe them when they say that the mayor is really a supernatural monster wearing human skin!  4Saken has all you need to start playing, including:

  • Survivor character creation rules, melding Background, Skills, Traits, Contacts, Gifts, and the all-important Instincts, which details what your Survivor does when they are overcome with fear!
  • Mechanics for regular play using the 4C Master Table and how to manipulate it, with details on combat, weapons, movement and hazards.
  • FEAR! –and how terror of the unknown and deadly hazards just beyond the edge of shadow can affect your Survivor!
  • For the Director, who crafts your journey through horror; a collection of macabre Menaces to challenge the survivors, as well as supporting cast and deadly animals.
  • Invaluable advice for Directors on how to make your 4Saken sessions give all the horror-movie themed game action you are looking for- fighting against forces you cannot comprehend, let alone hope to easily defeat…
  • Two spine-chilling sample adventures, Dead Man’s Recurve and Perchance to Scream, complete with maps, Director’s notes, and tons of horrific action your Survivor may not survive, should they choose not to run.

All of this, and more, in 4Saken, the 4C System-based tabletop RPG horror-themed game from the sympathetic serial-killers from Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

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.
