Something's wrong with the world and I don't know what it is.

It used to be better, of course it did. In the golden age of legend, when there was enough to eat and enough hope, when there was one nation under god and people could lift their eyes and see beyond the horizon, beyond the day. Children were born happy and grew up rich.

Now that's not what we've got. Now we've got this. Hardholders stand against the screaming elements and all comers, keeping safe as many as they can. Angels and savvyheads run constant battle against there's not enough and bullets fly and everything breaks. Hocuses gather people around them, and are they protectors, saviors, visionaries, or just wishful thinkers? Choppers, gunluggers and battlebabes carve out what they can and defend it with blood and bullets. Drivers search and scavenge, looking for that opportunity, that one perfect chance. Skinners and the Maestro D' remember beauty, or invent beauty anew, cup it in their hands and whisper come and see, and don't worry now about what it will cost you. And brainers, oh, brainers see what none of the rest of us will: the world's psychic maelstrom, the terrible desperation and hate pressing in at the edge of all perception, it is the world now.

And you, who are you? This is what we've got, yes. What are you going to make of it?

It'll be available in print soon, at apocalypse-world.com. I'm only holding off until the last of the backer rewards ship.

Thanks!

Cheers - thanks for clarifying :)

Is there a mailing list or something we could sign up to for notifications when they become available?

Bought the HC/PDF combo via your webstore (same email address as my account here). Thanks for the email letting me know the HC was available :) Assuming there is no way to get the PDF on DTRPG (I have already downloaded via payhip as directed from your website, but its easier to manage my library here). if not, that's cool...just thought I would ask the question.

Any news on a print version of this? Either POD or traditional?

I got the print version through the kickstarter - so they exist, and they're pretty swish, to boot. standard paperback format, a little bigger than A5 by my guess, 300 pages, nice paper - I'm sure they'll be on sale to the general public soon!

I'm not boasting, promise...

Goddamn it, how did I not know about this until now? I need to get a hard copy, if at all possible.

Is there a hardcopy book available soon? PDFs are nice but I like to be able to physically hold a copy too!

How big is the unzipped file size? Not much room left on my ipad.

We have no plans for PoD, but we're waiting as patiently as we can for shipments from our printers. It'll be available in print as soon as they arrive.

Hello!

Just NOW becoming aware of this whole thing. I am so far out of the loop it is not funny at all. Anyway, back in January your comment was made, waiting for shipments from the printers. Have all copies arrived and been sold now, or are you still waiting? I'd like to possibly secure one, but realize I may be too late.

Gamer for 35 years, heard about this system from my son, would really like to find a print copy at Gen Con this year? Chances?

I'm curious about this too, I couldn't even find a print copy for sail on the publisher's website.

is there any plans to release this as a PoD as I'm finding it hard to get a printed version anywhere?

Does this have a release so it can be printed out for personal use?

I clicked on this title for the express purpose of purchasing it, but after reviewing the comments section I've changed my mind. I WILL NOT purchase a pdf of this size without bookmarks. It is impossible to make use of an rpg book without them and treating them as an extra or a fun little DIY project is laughable. You might have gotten away with this a few years back, but Paizo and Evil Hat have set a standard that I have come to expect in all of my purchases. Fix this and you'll have an instant purchase.

Happy to add bookmarks to an RPG PDF if you want. Yeah, it should be expected, but also selling PDFs that aren't locked down so you can easily add your own should be expected too.

Sounds neat! Will buy once there's useful bookmarks.

It relaxes; as chaos sometimes does. Breaking free at that last moment ; to change what you can't live with. To fight against an imagined foe.

As others have said, please add bookmarks to the PDF! The game looks fantastic, but the lack of bookmarks makes using the PDF much harder than it needs to be.

Huh, yeah. A 300-page PDF with no bookmarks? Think I'll wait and see if bookmarks get added.

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.
