So I own the 2nd edition box set of this RPG and was considering getting the PDF as well in the hope that it would contain corrections for some of the important errors in the manual, particularly updated examples. The examples in the printed materials are from the 1st edition and do not reflect important changes made in the 2nd edition such as the handling of traits. Can anyone comment as to whether this PDF was fixed before publication. The November 23, 2015 date for File Last Updated does not inspired confidence. Thanks!

I was very excited to start learning this game. I bought the hardcover online and came to Drivethru to buy the PDF separately. After spending another $20 (which should have been included in the purchase of the book) I found it lacking bookmarks, making it practically unusable at the table. Hopefully the bookmark situation can be fixed soon. I canceled my hard copy purchase as a result, and will hold off on pursuing this game further until the bookmark situation can be resolved.

You know you can edit PDFs and add your own bookmarks in? Foxit reader will let you do that. I'm not saying it's ideal, but I've done it many times myself, it's not that bad. I often rearrange bookmarks to suite my tastes.

It unfortunately doesnt :( The pdf is protected by a security measure that does not allow us to bookmark sections

I've downloaded the file and attempted to open it, but there is a brief message saying "The file is damaged, but is being repaired", followed by a textbox saying "There was an error opening this document. The root object is missing or invalid". I'm working to try and fix it, but does anyone have any advice?

It was just an easily fixable file error - should have just gone to the FAQ and written to help before complaining here. Thanks DTRPG staff!

Is there am "Experience Point" system that allows the characters to learn and get stronger over time? Or are they static like in Fighting Fantasy and Traveller?

There is an experience system although it isn't a flat XP to next level system.

Every skill (and attribute) has bubbles that you track to level that skill up. You have to succeed and fail and the higher the skill the more you must succeed and fail to level up. Why do you have to fail too? Because if you aren't failing you probably aren't pushing yourself very hard and you aren't learning from your mistakes. This encourages you to tackle bigger challenges when you are ranked highly in a skill and on top of that it makes failure rewarding in its own way so that even a bad roll of the dice isn't a useless result.

Does this have the cards in PDF to be able to print at home?
Customer avatar
Trenton A October 29, 2016 8:09 pm UTC
It does not although honestly all the cards do is have the word you have to keep in mind and some artwork. You can easily make your own and print them out or just scribble on some index cards and they work more than well enough. It is a shame that they didn't let us print out our own cards though.

I purchased the hardcover version of this book. The game is great. It's unfortunate that it's being published by Archaia Entertainment, as my multiple requests (twitter, facebook, email) for information on a discount of a PDF version for those who own a hard copy went unanswered.

I am very unlikely to further support this publisher.

Any significant difference between the 1st and 2nd editions?

I am curious as well. I have both hard covers, but have yet to read them.

Only changing some of the layout to make it easier to read, correcting a couple misprinted numbers.

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.
