Rainbow World

Watermarked PDF

Rainbow World is a short collaborative world building game. With it, a few friends can generate a unique world, filled with wonder and conflict, in a half hour. It can handle original races and almost any setting or genre you can dream up!

It employs an economy of earning and eating Skittles candies as the history of your fictional world is unveiled. As the game progesses, the world shifts and changes, reflected by index cards piling up. The game ends when everyone agrees that a satisfying snapshot of an imaginary world has developed.

Rainbow World was first written for the 2016 200 Word RPG Challenge and can still be found on the challenge's website. This new version is mechanically identical to the challenge entry but features expanded text, play examples, and art to better explain the 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.
