Genre and style flexible! As easily play a straight-faced game of serious ethical consideratitons as a wild, surrealist comic romp through time and space. Emulate your favorite mad scientist and wild inventor-adventurer cartoons, movies, and TV shows. Lean into whatever feel and style you love.

Uses a complete unified build of the Motif Game Framework, featuring the Motif Story Engine (solo RPG toolkit), Motif Character Engine (character/player emulator), and the Motif Action Engine (quickplay RPG system). The main rolls only use three standard six-sided dice. It produces interesting answers and rich results without complex charts to reference. A player facing system where only players roll, with NPCs and circumstances having consequences for player character failure.

Tuned for solo roleplaying! BLEEP includes story and character engines to provide a complete GM-ulator experience. It also provides modules for story plotting mysteries, handling story momentum, and introducing twists and turns. NPCs are quick to generate and obvious to run, but are additionally supported by a character engine to add uncertainty to their responses.

Exceed the laws of nature and explore a new world of possibilities! Enjoy a fast-paced, narrative-focused, free-flowing style as you pursue scifi, futurist fantasy, weird fiction, and comedic stories.

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.
