Zach's Book

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $10.00

This book is the cornerstone of a bundle in support of Zach Best and his family. Zach is an RPG writer whose credits include BOLD, CRGE, UNO and TOSS. He is currently in hospice suffering from esophageal cancer. All proceeds from this book go directly to Zach to help deal with care and any other expenses.

Many generous publishers are donating their games to this bundle. Sending 10 bucks towards the Best family gets you all sorts of goodness to enjoy. Any publishers who want to get in on this bundle can leave a comment below and we'll get in touch.

I want to call out the people at Drivethru who've worked to get the bundle going. Chris Tang especially was very helpful.

Thanks, too, to the publishers, bloggers and others who spread the word and/or added products to the bundle:

Matt Sanders of Dwarves in a Trenchcoat for adding his Bags of Flavour supplement.

Steven Creech of DragonWing for including Darkwalkers, Well of the Twice-Born and Lore of the Gods

Robert Marriner-Dodds of Dragon Turtle for adding Dragon Drop Adventures 5E

John WS Marvin of Dread Unicorn for adding Gods and Icons, The Gods Have Spoken, and The Sun Below supplements

John Watts of Gypsy Knight Games for Hub Federation Ground Forces and Inroduction to Clement Sector.

CS Barnhart of Mad Martian for Ice Kingdoms: The Temple of Drawoh Rock

David Schirduan of Technical Grimoire for Mythic Mortals

Chris Stieha of thunder bunnyt press for several issues of his RND zine

Scott Malthouse of Trollish Delver Games for Romance of the Perilous Land

Joidi Black of Pinnacle Entertainment group for Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition

Bill DeFranza of BD Games for The Baron's Gold

Daniel Fox of Grim & Perilous Studios for ZWEIHANDER Grim & Perilous RPG

Sophia Brandt, Alex Yari and everyone on the Lone Wolf Solo Roleplaying G+ Community, and therpgsite.

I wish I had discovered Zach's creations sooner. They are a gift to all of us in the RPG community. I saw a message about his illness in a Yahoo group and was deeply touched by his situation. Like many, I'm a long-time player of RPGs, but distance has separated me from the friends with whom I used to play, and the demands of life leave little time even for solo play. More recently, my wife's cancer diagnosis and ongoing treatment have refocused all of my priorities. I can in some small way imagine what Zach and his family must be experiencing. My thoughts are with you all. I understand that every day together is a blessing.

Sorry to see the bundle has already been taken down. I - and apparently several others - had no idea it was only going to be available for such a short while as a week, and only learned so through a product that mentioned it was included, but released the 17th or so.
I send my best wishes and prayers to Zach and his family; our own family went through that with my mother seven years ago.

Product Information
File Size:
0.3 MB
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.
