Here Be Dragons - The Rise of the Children of Sraghadaxos Dragon-Mother

Dragons are awesome

They are the mightiest and most beautiful creatures in the world, at least in their own mind. There’s no doubt, however, that dragons can take on whole armies, and are able to surpass any mortals in philosophy and plotting alike. In Here Be Dragons, you play a dragon across ages, to see what she becomes, and what becomes of the world because of her.

Here Be Dragons - The Rise of the Children of Sraghadaxos Dragon-Mother is a light storytelling/role-playing game about how the dragons change the world. That is, the players talk, and some parts of that establish a fictional world,
which the whole game is about.

Throughout the game, each dragon reacts to the events that happen in their domain, forging their place in the world and its history through manipulation, intimidation or destroying their

There are some neat ideas in here, but it's riddled with flaws as well and feels like a rough draft. It's free, but I sort of feel like I'd still be spending my time more effectively if I built my own system from the ground up rather than adapted this [...]

This is a very well thought out and interesting mini game that could be used as a basis for both world building and a different kind of game session. It seems like it would really give the players insights on the magnificence of dragons in the world ra [...]

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.
