A downloadable guide

I just wanted to play Caves of Qud. That's how it started. I always had a hard time getting into roguelikes, so I started out gently by reading the Beginner's Guide. This turned out to be a bit of a long read, so I thought it would make sense to print it out, and while I was at it, why not print it as an retro game manual, fittingly for the oldie roguelike style? This project took a life on its own, and I soon forgot about actually playing the game. So, here's the Beginner's Guide, ready to print!

If you don't have it already, you can buy Caves of Qud here.

Just printed out my copy, too.

I had some initial difficulty with the instructions and rotating the pages. In the end I found, for my printer, printing double sided and choosing short edge, on landscape, was easiest and most effective.

Very happy with this now.

The pdf ends on page 15 i  mid sentence. It's incomplete. The epub version is fine.


The .pdf isn't designed for onscreen viewing, but for printing: You print the odd pages, turn the stack over, print the even pages, and fold the stack in the middle. As you might gather, this requires the pages to be presented in a rather weird order! :-)
