Wonders Wild & Deep Core Set


"I've used it to run classic fantasy dungeons with great ease and fun. Highly recommended!" - Giuseppe R.

Wonders Wild & Deep is a pocket fantasy role playing game. It requires only the contents of this file, some pencils, erasers, and six sided dice (ten will be plenty). And of course, two or more players and a lot of imagination :)

The product comes in the form of a three-part PDF in A4 format:

4 Character Sheets that can be folded into Poker card size.

A Core Rulebook in pocketmod format, that can be easily printed and folded. It includes rules for Challenge Rolls and Fate Rolls, the passing of time, light sources, making camp and spending your hard-earned gold in town (resting and resupplying).

A Referee's Grimoire in pocketmod format too; this one contains tips on how to be a Referee for the game, how to write monster profiles, how to deal with magic items, and some optional rules that might spice up your sessions.

And finally, A Tuckbox that can fit the character sheets and pocketmod booklets for the game!

Wonders Wild & Deep is geared towards an "old school" style of play, but with light minimalist mechanics and a streamlined, simplified approach. The overall design goal was to make everything run as smoothly and quickly as possible. It uses a D6 pool system: in general, if you roll at least one 6 you're doing great; if you roll anything else you might lose this opportunity or achieve your goal but suffer a setback of some kind.

You should be able to run most classic adventures with this. And trust me, you can really fit the game in your pocket! ;)

Wonders Wild & Deep is a very fresh take on fantasy/dungeon adventure. Focus is shifted from single characters' feats to group's inventiveness and resources, and the basic resolution system always succeeds in pushing the players to evaluate risk/re [...]

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.
