Steam World (Core Book)

Watermarked PDF

A Steampunk Pen and Paper RPG drawing inspiration from the classics of literature that gave rise to the Steampunk movement!

  • Adventure in a world inspired by some of the Victorian Era's most proflici writers!
  • Five exciting Steampunk Classes: Scrapper, Punk, Big Game Hunter, Apothecary, and Clockwerk!
  • Steampowered technology and more, including Biomechanics and Champagne Sabers!

Steam World is a brand new setting for use with Dungeon World, but has some great materials that can be used in your own campaign, regardless of rule system. It is a world of Victorian Science Fiction (aka Steampunk) that is inspired by the works of authors such as Jules Verne, HC Wells, with a little bit of HP Lovecraft and Lewis Carroll thrown in for good measure. Steam World is quite diverse and provides for diverse Steampunk adventuring whether it’s in the sprawling Victorian metropolises, dinosaur filled uncharted islands, or city sized caverns beneath the surface of the world.

B. Wraven Wright has ghostwritten over 100 OGL D20 adventures and supplements for publishers large and small and also acted as a Slot 0 (beta tester) on over three dozen adventures for Living Forgotten Realms, the organized game play platform that was sanctioned by Wizards Of The Coast for Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition. He also created 2Die10 Games imprint and successfully used Kickstarter to publish his own game and setting, Excelsior.

I notice that this is 94 pages smaller than the other version. What would I be missing with this version?

The other rulebook is a core rulebook designed by 2Die10. It is a complete game that doesn't require any other texts to play. This book is a supplement to Dungeon World. You need Dungeon World in order to play this game.

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.
