Parable of the Pit

Watermarked PDF

The Basics

Parable of the Pit is a decidedly un-heoric “survival horror dungeon crawler” in which the players take on the roles of ordinary people trying to survive and escape an extraordinarily unfriendly place. It aims to emphasize risk-reward, resource management, and creative problem solving.

Notes on the Ashcan   

The Ashcan Release contains everything you need to play and run the game. It is mainly an ashcan because I may add art and optional appendices in the future (additional Warden/GM resources, for example), and because I may yet adjust a few things here and there based on feedback, if I receive any. I may also periodically go back to the document and fix any typographical errors or inconsistencies that I hadn't managed to find the first few times around. 

Note: Parable of the Pit is a Powered by the Apocalypse game, which is a tabletop roleplaying game inspired by the excellent Apocalypse World by D. Vincent Baker and Meguey Baker).

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.
