Companion Pieces


Del was bleeding; a strange mix of blood and amber from his woodfolk body. His friends and comrades were scattered around the battlefield, each exhausted from the frantic battle, but still willing to stand and fight. Denera, the God King towered over him, but that didn't phase Del anymore - today, for the first time in centuries, the god before him seemed winded.

"You call yourself an immortal king, but what have you done for the people, you tyrant!?" Del spat, goading the prideful god before him. Angered further, Denera swung wide with his bloodforged axe.

Can’t Anyone Save The World? 2nd Edition is a traditional 3d6 roleplaying game, inspired by popular classic RPGs. To play, you’ll need 3 six-sided dice, paper, a pencil, and imagination. This game is designed for 3 to 7 players, and a game master (or GM for short). This game is short and simple, while also being player-friendly and easy to read - ideal for new players who have never played before but want to start. Plus, when printed as a booklet, these rules look incredibly elegant!

Can't Anyone Save the World is not... a game. It barely qualifies as a rule system. It's a stripped down collection of rules taken from modern D&D, placed next to new concepts which are not fully realized, and a small sampling of the author [...]

Original electronic
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.
