So sad no print. Can't do pdf! Wish I could get a print of this. This would have helped me get into Dungeon World more. Dungeon World is really hard for me to GM as is.

I just can't understand why the author won't have a print option. It's been 5 years already. Make it happen and take my money.

How is this a Fate Core supplement? The preview only mentions playbooks...?

The content is presented for both DW and FATE. They also do a playbook style approach for FATE. I liked it, but it wouldn't be hard to adjust if you didn't care for it.

Playbook style for Fate? Hmm, actually that DOES sound interesting. Thx for the info.

Does this require dw core or is it standalone?

It's not standalone, but one of the best supplements out there for Dungeon World and Fate Core. This books adds a layer of Grimdark to your campaign with new classes, races, items and a few exclusives gameplay mechanics.

I have MANY Dungeon World supplements, and I think this may be the best one out there. Definitely top three, but it has stiff competition! A fantastic and worthy purchase no DW player or GM would regret.

Nearly a year on I'm still really interested in a PoD version of this. Any chance?

Great Supplement. Bought direct before it was up on Drivethru RPG. Probably the best Dungeon World supplement out there

I got the pdf of this as part of the Kickstarter campaign. This book is beautiful and extremely well done. I can't wait to see what they do next.

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.
