“Several decades ago, archeologists uncovered irrefutable proof that aliens had come to Earth in the distant past, shaping and sometimes ruling over early human civilizations. Scientists named these mysterious visitors “primordials,” and they found evidence that the aliens had once used humans to populate many other worlds, transporting them through a network of interstellar pathways.

After years of studying these findings and researching alien artifacts, scientists have finally discovered how to activate the primordials’ gateway device. A drone traveled through the wormhole and reported a breathable atmosphere on the far side, so now the next step is to send through a group of specialists.

You are a team of elite operatives, the first humans in millennia to enter a gateway. Your mission is to explore new worlds, recover alien technology, and find further evidence of the primordials.”

Designed for DriveThruRPG’s PocketQuest 2023 game jam, and inspired by science fiction movies such as Prometheus and Stargate, Paths Between the Stars is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twists. The PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

As per usual, another great one-pager for Richard's Tricube Tales system. It's actually rather fantastic from a designer perspective, the freedom to play around with a setting in such a limited way while relying on your main work to power it.

The main game has a POD which looks and feels great in the hand as well if you haven't picked that up. That + these easily printable One-Pagers are perfect to fill gaps between campaigns and whatnot). They work so well even as short brainstorming frameworks for similarly themed adventures, just giving you a few prompts to push you in the right direction in a quick prep session. Exactly up my alley, gaming-wise

I've purchased a handful of these various settings, and it's a great way to get a quick feel for a certain time/place. Richard is both proficient and prolific in his support of Tricube Tales.

Your output of these games is impressive. I’d like to see Sword & Sandal, and Sentai

I’ve been thinking of doing sword & sorcery, but sword & sandal would definitely be interesting too! Sentai is on my todo list — I’m still trying to decide how best to handle it

Sword & Sorcery has already been done in Tricube by other publishers, not that more wouldn’t be good. As far as how to do Sentai, the Lasers & Feelings hack of Power Rangers available for free here on drivethrurpg, might be a good place to start. The down side to that game is it doesn’t designate archetypes

I've been reading up on sword & sandal, and it's a fairly broad genre, covering clearly mythological stuff (like Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans, and Hercules) as well as loosely historical movies (such as Troy, Gladiator, Spartacus, etc). I think I could come up with a pretty fun Greek Mythology scenario about demigods fighting monsters, but I'd struggle with something more historical.

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.
