The Plotonomicon

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $5.00

Oops, the heroes have ruined the story, again. They managed to get Camelot invaded by the peaceful Seelie while King Arthur was at war, to kill teenage Karl Marx while vacationing in Space·Time or to blow up the Magical University where the entire campaign was meant to take place. Also, they have just entered the Unknowable Dungeon of Unspeakable Death, for which you have no maps, or they are due to meet the Ambassador of the Qfew'dhi Confederation, the one you just invented by pushing random keys on your keyboard.

But you're not ready to give up on that story, are you?

What is the Plotonomicon?

The Plotonomicon is a very simple story improvisation technique that you may use for role-playing games, storytelling or even writing novels. You'll need the Plotonomicon itself (it fits on one sheet), a deck of cards (there's one included, but if you can use a Tarot deck, if you prefer) and... that's it!


How will King Arthur Pendragon react to news of the invasion?

How will history readjust itself without Karl Marx?

How will the Unseen Council protect the Mundane Sphere without the Sevenfold Anchor?

What evil lurks in the Unknowable Dungeon of Unspeakable Death?

What does a Qfew'dhi even look like?

The Plotonomicon knows!

(well, or at least, it can help you improvise an answer)

This products consists in:

  • The Plotonomicon, a simple rule to use the Space·Time Deck in your regular role-playing or storytelling sessions, presented as a short PDF comic;
  • The Space·Time Deck, a deck of 67 illustrated and interpreted cards, loosely inspired from Tarot, and designed to help GMs, Players and Storytellers answer any question that may show up during play, as well as improvising plots, settings, twists, characters, places, lore, ...

Warning Most of the illustrations are museum pieces. Some of them display the kind of nudity you can expect to see in a museum. You may wish to review the product before putting it in the hands of children. Or on Tumblr.

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.
