Straw Boss • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price €4,66

Straw-Boss-DTRPG-Side-Image.jpgLet us tell a story of sacrifice and corruption. Enter the world of Straw Boss.

Belief defines reality. Members of the Scholars of the Hieroglyphical Monad know this to be true. Some might call it a cult, but you know everything they teach is real. The power you and your fellow Scholars wield shores up the crumbling sands of reality where myths both new and ancient seek to enter our world. Because sometimes, bad people believe bad things and by doing so, call them into being. You must recruit the bad things as Familiars, bound to help you in your mission, or destroy them. Walk the gritty road between light and dark in Straw Boss, a Fate World of Adventure by JR Evans.

Straw Boss requires Fate Core to play. This 45-page supplement includes:

  • A new aspect structure to define the character as well as their role in the cult structure
  • Rules for demonic (or other) possession in Fate, including new skills and stunts
  • A new currency—Corruption—allows characters to boost their performance at a cost
  • Simple Vigil and Inquisition prompts to help the group develop their cult’s identity and storylines
  • A unique flippable character sheet to allow players to flip back and forth between their character and their Familiar
  • A sample adventure: The Thief on the Cross

Fight the darkness with your faith... and the monster hiding up your sleeve. Straw Boss.

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.
