T.W.E.R.P.S. Basic Rules (2nd Edition)

Watermarked PDF

Complete rules, adventure, maps, character sheet and 60 cut-out playing pieces.  Designed for novice gamers who have never role-played before, or for veteran players looking for a simpler, more fun/less rules system.  Only the first adventure (which is included in this book) is fully scripted with explanations of how to use its four basic rules when they are encountered during game play.  Features some of the best of the worst punny names ever used in gaming.  Each game book in the series provides additional maps, characters needed for the specific genre covered as well as extra characters (which you can use to take the story in other directions or for crafting other original stories), character cut-outs and rules expansions allow you to specialize in any genre (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Science Fantasy, Horror, Space Opera, Martial Arts, Post Apocalyptic, etc).  This basic rule set allows you craft any genre you can imagine, while the expansion sets give more detailed information and guidelines for that specific subject.  This booklet is designed to be read and run immediately, without any prior study.

Essentially starting with an Adventure was a little confusing, but it was actually a decent, funny adventure. The system is intended to be really simple, I wish the expansions were available here. [...]

Scanned I can live with. This is a very bare bones barely rules system with which I see no way to that which is indicated. Five bucks for the entire set which WOULD feasibly allow one to play just about anything, would be more reasonable. These are jus [...]

It's TWERPS! In all it's 1995 glory! Sure, the pages are a bit grainy, and a part of me would have liked a new, souped-up and shiny version, but I just don't think it would be TWERPS then! The game consists of an introductory adventure that teaches you [...]

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.
