Very nice rule set. Is there anything in the works to take this to different genres, i.e. sci-fi, post apocalyptic etc.?

Sci-fi is the one I would like to do next. Nothing set in stone for a time frame yet however. Hoping to get started on it after the holidays.

Is there any way to get the book in main land Europe, without a hefty vat and tax?

You should be able to get copies on Amazon (.de .it, .uk, etc.) in both hardcover and softcover.

Perfect. Then I just need to brush up on my broken German :)
I notice a player guide on Amazon.
Whats that?

It’s just the players sections of the main rulebook (no monsters, treasures, or GM section). Just available as a cheap softcover book for the players to use at a table.

Ah. I see that now. Bought the pdf.
It´s a very nifty system!

Now you just need to publish more classes, an insanity mechanic and a corruption mechanic and we are golden!

Hi, I bought the hardcover on Amazon (nice soft touch cover, is the Lulu pod or Amazon KDP?), is there any discount on pdf?
A question about the Powers, why "if you attempt to cast the same Power the next round that roll is EASY"? Doesen't this lead to using always the same powers?

Hey Emanuele, thanks for buying a hardcover!

About casting Powers. If they try to cast and fail, and on the next round they try to cast the same power again, it’s easy (and if they fail that, it’s easy again the round after, until it’s successful or they quit trying and do another action instead).

There’s a small number of powers so you will get players casting the same thing over and over again anyway (which happens in d&d too, even with it’s 200+ spells).

And email me at for the pdf discount.

Oh I totally missed that the roll was EASY only after a fail on a casting roll, makes perfectly sense. Thanks!

Hi, is there a possibility of having a compatibility licence so fans can publish material for EBTT ?
Customer avatar
Scott M November 08, 2021 12:09 am UTC
Yep, it’s coming… probably not until right after Thanksgiving but I am putting it together with some “compatible with” logos etc.

Any Print on Demand incoming?

Yes, just waiting for the proof copy to arrive from DriveThru. May be another 2 weeks. But it is available in hardcover on Amazon and Lulu now.

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.
