Decopedia Volume 3

It's time to announce the release of the third volume of the Decopedia series, rather originally called "Decopedia Volume 3". 
It's the same type of content as wit the previous volumes... This book has been written for use with the role playing game Traveller. It's designed to give the referee "drop ins" for their game. Each entry is separate and self contained so you can take it and squeeze it into your own game. Inside you will find, 10 planets, 10 alien animals, 10 people of interest, and 10 story seeds.

The planet descriptions highlight cultural, political and religious elements that make the system interesting to visit, this isn't just a string of statistics. The animals are all designed to inspire or be a part of an interesting encounter. the people of interest are individuals who have made a mark on Imperial society for good or bad, and each story seed is a core idea for generating an entire scenario.

This product was designed for use with Mongoose Traveller, but is compatible with all versions.

Legendary: The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride is a rare and precious film, one that combines action, adventure, romance and humour into an epic tale of love lost, found, and fought for. A cult classic. (Buy the film it's awesome!)

The Legendary Encounters system is a fantastic set of board game mechanisms that allow the developers to produce thematic cards games that evince the feel of the stories they tell in a marvelous way. (Check out "Legendary Encounters: Alien" and "Legendary Encounters: Predator", they're as awesome as the films they're based on!)

So here I present a combination of these two fantastic flavours! The Princess Bride transformed into board game form!

Here are a few cards from the game to give you a feel for what the game looks like :)

This game is a fan-work given away for free to all who want it. It is designed for either 1 or 3 players, although you might try 2 but I make no promises about that. You can download the files and print them yourself or use some independent print service. The game consists of a 10 page rule book, a board, and 218 cards. You can print everything in black and white or full colour, as you wish.

Download and enjoy :)

Download the Print and Play package  (if the direct link doesn't work try this )

Update! Following demand, I have combined the cards images into PDFs to aid printing at home.

Download the card PDFs

New Update : This replaces the previous packages. It includes a small addition to the rules, and five cards have been updated and these changes are necessary fixes! The following cards have been updated. 001, 003, 041, 043, 090

Download v1.1 or if that doesn't work, you can visit the download page here.

Edit: I've uploaded the cards to a series of 4 decks that you can purchase via  ArtsCow.com , you'll need to order 1 copy of each of each. (I've carefully looked over these decks but I haven't ordered them myself to proof check them).
