What people have said about Yoon-Suin

"Yoon-Suin remains for me the original OSR setting and a huge inspiration." - Tom F

"One of the most original and fully-realized settings period in DIY D&D or otherwise." - Zak S

"This is probably one of the most impressive gaming supplements (let alone campaign settings) that I’ve ever come across...I can’t recommend this enough: this is a must-have for any DM or game designer. It is a fantastic work." - Necrozius

"My mind is blown. This a labour of wonder. It is as stepping into a very idosyncratic storybook, with step by step instructions on how to have a magical adventure within. It is 300 pages of love, allowing endless adventure." - Hack Slash Master

Beautiful layout and writing. I recently played in a campaign of this and loved it. Love the influences and being apart of a culture that felt exotic and foreign to a degree I hadn't felt before. The print copy looks great, especially for POD! [...]

A reviewer said that this product contains writing of a quality inferior to that of other OSR products. That reviewer is dead wrong. This is one of the few RPG materials that can be read as one would read a novel. The beginning features a fict [...]

Though marred by frequent typos and the level of writing seems not as good as other OSR products, there is no denying that Yoon-Suin is chock-full of amazing RPG goodness. It is nigh impossible not to read this and get inspired in half-a-hundr [...]

Yoon-Suin is tea and opium, sunset over the Yellow City, melancholy and a sense of stillness and still stand, slug-men and cockroach herders, impregnable high mountains and dangerous lush jungles, ghosts and demons, and being a foreigner in a strange [...]

This is a wonderful toolkit for building a RPG campaign (or region within) that will be identifiable but unique compared to others familiar with the same setting. It's wonderful, yeah I said that already but that's because it is. The author does more [...]

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.
