Vigilant Player's Guide

Suggested Price $4.99

Classic dungeon crawling meets a modernized ruleset in this tightly balanced, highly lethal tactical fantasy TTRPG!

Easy to pick up and jump in a game but with plenty of depth hidden beneath the surface, Vigilant provides a unique tabletop experience for veteran role-players, combat junkies, and newcomers alike.

Vigilant is built for players who like having countless options within the system itself. With plenty of viable ways to approach encounters as both the player and GM, Vigilant ensures that your adventurers will always face new and exciting challenges. If you've ever bemoaned the action economy of a classic d20 system, or felt like combats in your games become stale, deterministic, or same-y, then Vigilant is built for you! 

Play as a hulking bipedal catfish that can headbutt their way through a wall, a manic investigator whose very presence puts others on edge, a deranged healer who derives their power from alien gods, a wild sorcerer constantly at risk of having their head explode, or thousands of other combinations of archetypes, races, and perks! Vigilant puts the tools in your hands to create wild and spicy characters... or an edgy rogue with no friends! 

Included in the 205-page Player's Guide: 

  •  Intuitive systems for seamless play between narrative and combat encounters complimented by a flexible experience system to reward both! 
  •  7 Races, 6 backgrounds, 4 archetypes, 26 sub-trees, and plenty more spells and general options to pick and choose from to build the ultimate adventurer!
  • More than 30 unique spells, and some horrifying miscast tables
  • An extremely flexible action economy
  • Loads of combat options! 
  • Rules for permanent damage! Lose your freakin' arm! 
  • All the other stuff to make the game work!

The Vigilant Player's Guide is a living rules document. As more content gets released in Omnium-gatherums, expansions, and modules the important bits will slowly be incorporated into the Player's Guide.

There does not appear to be a separate character sheet download as is mentioned in the description, just the book file.

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.
