My Delving Deeper Print Copy Has Arrived!

I'm a big fan of early-edition clones. I like their low page-count, and all the vast room they leave for rulings rather than rules. I don't think I've met an early edition clone I didn't like. Right now, Immersive Ink's Delving Deeper is at the top of my list, and I plan to use it the next time I start a new campaign.


It's not so different in content from other clones. But it has (IMO) the tightest, most intuitive organization of all the early-edition clones. It also fits into my personal "sweet spot" of being rules-light, while also having just enough rules on things I want to have already ruled for me, while leaving out what I don't need.

Granted, that's all a question of personal taste, and it may not be your cup of tea. But if you aren't already familiar with Delving Deeper, you might want to give the rules a look. The free reference rule pdfs are available at the Immersive Ink Forum. The $4.78 print version is available at Lulu.

  1. Glad you found something that you like. The price tag looks pretty good. I like when stuff is under five.

    Happy Saturday. We are in the movie room right now. Tim is gaming and I am reading blogs. Lady Bug is in the middle, sleeping. It's a good Saturday, though feels more like a Sunday.

    1. Ha! After all the times you've done that to me, I owe you! :)

      But hey, for under $5, how can you really go wrong?

  3. Been thinking of getting this for myself as well. I already have Delving Deeper box set and while I have never been able to play the game, I certainly find it interesting.

    1. Hi Matt: The content is more or less the same as the boxed set (as far as I can tell -- I haven't actually done a page-by-page, point-by-point comparison). The presentation is slightly more polished though (e.g. nicer binding). I should mention there is very little art. The title page for each section has a full-page drawing; otherwise that's it -- not something that bothers me in the slightest, but some folks might not like that.
