X-Card from Hounds and Jackals - Proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders

Suggested Price $0.50

As a big believer in psychological safety in games and simulation, I love the "X" Card.

No point causing traumatic experiences when a few easy actions can reduce the chance of them occurring!

A really great review of some of the tools and techniques can be found at Safety Tools for Tabletop RPGs from Thomas Weinbeger, of Dramadice.

I truly believe in tools such as the “X” card.  Although it’s easy enough to grab a paper and make an “X”… I thought I’d make a nice one for people to print out to make it more 

“present” during the game, so people would not forget it.

The image of the Scare Dog is one from a cover image of the book the MIND SPIDER by Fritz Leiber.  I’ve always loved that image as a kid…. and it just looks wild!  It also seems canine, so totally fits the H&J doggo mindset.  I reached out and was given permission by the artist, Walter Rane, to use it for charitable causes.

Therefore, here is an X-Card as a free download to help promote mental health.  

If you feel like throwing in a few shekels, 95% of whatever you give will go to DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS. You can imagine the amount of psychological distress DWB is treating currently along with having to deal with their own reactions to current world events.


Play safe!

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.
