Blood & Treasure

Your world is crumbling at the edges, pressed in on all sides by the savage and pitiless darkness—monsters and other evils that prey upon light and life. Most of your people huddle behind walls, convincing themselves that your civilization will persevere and conquer this land.

But you don’t have that luxury. There’s naught for you in this world save blood and treasure. You’ve no inheritance, no dowry, no rich uncle, not even a job. 

You’ve come to this inn because you have no other options but to make your own fortune in this damned world. And if that means delving into ruins of a long dead civilization and slaying a dragon or two, so be it. At least you’ll live it up before the end. And who knows? Maybe you’ll carve out a stronghold of light against the vast, weird dark after all.

So you’re at this inn, looking for prospects, looking for a few companions to back you up, looking for a way out of this two‑bit town…

Based on the award-winning Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game, Torchbearer is a riff on the early model of fantasy roleplaying games. In it, you take on the role of a fortune-seeking adventurer.

To earn that fortune, you must delve into forlorn ruins, brave terrible monsters and retrieve forgotten treasures. However, make no mistake, this game is not about being a hero or about fighting for what you believe. This game is about exploration and survival.

You may become a hero. You might have to fight for your ideals. But to do either of those things, you must prove yourself in the wilds. Because there are no jobs, no inheritance, no other opportunities for your deadbeat adventurers. This life is your only hope to prosper in this world.

Is this only 4 pages. I really want to get this game and kick myself for not being part of the kickstarter but I don't see how paying 15.00 for 4 pages is something anyone should pay. So I'm hoping there's more to this.

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.
