FOR COIN & BLOOD is an old school fantasy roleplaying game with a twist...

...a twist of the knife!

Embracing the literary genre known as "grimdark", and inspired by stories of mercenaries, sellswords and blackguards, FOR COIN & BLOOD keeps you on your toes, as you tell stories about the terrible things that happen to people, when they head out in search of coin, passion, and revenge...

FOR COIN & BLOOD uses a modified version of Swords & Wizardry: WhiteBox, but is a complete game.

IMPORTANT: ALL ART IN FOR COIN & BLOOD IS BLACK AND WHITE. In order to offer premium paper quality copies, they have to be printed on "color" paper. However, the interiors are fully Black & White.

The softcover edition features the excellent art by Jeremy Mohler on the cover (as pictured above.) 

The hardcover edition features the Kickstarter funded Faux-Leather mockup (as pictured below.)

I've tried on several different computers, and I'm still getting an "Error: pdf document failed to load" message.

I've tried to view the preview multiple times now and I keep receiving an error in Acrobat saying the file is corrupted.

Hey Thomas!

That'd been fixed previously and required a cache clear and refresh. I put a ticket into DTRPG to see if there was a new issue.

I'm not very happy to see that my kickstarted softcover is completely missing the "Enemies and Opponents" section.

Hi Samuel,

I saw your comment on Kickstarter, and I've already reached out to you via Kickstarter Message to address this for you.

So just to confirm, if one were to order the Hardcover B&W book, do we get the green faux leather cover featuring just the game title (a really slick look in my opinion)?
Or a cover featuring the art of the swordswoman by Alan Bahr (nice art, but I prefer the plain green cover appearing in the KS page)?

If you order the hardcover, you get the green faux-leather cover!

The softcover has the art pictured above! (and it's by Jeremy Mohler, not Alan!)

Excellent! Thank you.
I stand corrected on the artist.

Getting a message saying the preview file is 'plain text' and therefore can't be viewed.

Hi Carl!

Are you referring to the preview? If so, we're working to get it fixed. We're not sure what happened (we've uploaded dozens of products with no issues), so we've had to engage DriveThruRPG.

I was, I thought the 'plain text' bit might be useful (I'm no computer geek), and thanks for working on the problem. I'm impatient though and bought it anyway!

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.
