Description:

The obSESSION Beta Edition is a release designed to be used to playtest and improve the system before it's full commercial release.

This Beta Edition contains

  • The final release Core Rulebook, complete and ready to use
  • Samples from the forthcoming Simple Fantasy genre supplement
  • An "Extras" booklet containing additional material


Purchase of the Beta Edition will entitle you to receive the Core Set when it is released, including the full versions of the Appendices. Over the course of the remaining development the Beta Edition will be revised to gradually bring it closer to the final Core Set. This will involve both the addition of the Appendix material and the removal of the "Extras" and the samples, though some material which originally surfaces in Extras will likely end up in the Appendices.

obSESSION is more than just a Role Playing Game, it is a set of core mechanics designed for use with any setting, genre or game style. The fully expandable rules contained in this book are adjustable for a variety of playing styles and can be used to model any reality that the GM or designer can imagine.
Additional optional rules from Obsessive Compulsive Design are fully compatible with the rules found within, expanding upon rather than contradicting the core rules and ensuring that any optional expansion is usable with any obSESSION game, not just one or two.
GMs and designers can choose the level of realism they desire and balance it against a number of player-friendly options to create the game and experience that they want. By building from a consistent base model of reality obSESSION allows for the rules or settings to be “tweaked” without losing compatibility. It’s internal consistency also allows for a minimum of mechanics to cover a maximum array of potential situations and makes “on-the-fly” rules decisions simple.

The Core Rulebook contains enough to begin using the obSESSION system with a little work from the GM but these rules are expanded upon and complemented by the material found in the Appendices. Optional, alternate and advanced rules make obSESSION adaptable enough to fit what YOU want from a game, whether for your home campaign or a planned publishing project.

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.
