Description:

Originally published in 1996 by ICE, this new edition of Castles and Ruins has been digitally remastered by The Guild Companion.

Castles and Ruins is a sourcebook dealing with the details of castles, construction of dwellings, and the aging of ruins. Designed for use with the Rolemaster Standard System and wholly compatible with Rolemaster Fantasy Role-Play.

Inside you will find details on the history of castles, the construction of castles, the folk who dwell in and around castles, as well as how castles age to become ruins.

In Castles and Ruins you get:

  • Many new Training Packages that represent the vocations and lifestyles of the folk around castles - including a selection of Training Package Spell Lists.
  • Details on the processes used in castle construction (finding sites, materials, labor, etc.). Guidelines on costs are also provided.
  • Details on staffing of castles as well as notes about the day-to-day operations of these bastions of power.
  • Guidelines on how castles age, becoming ruins. These ruins and other structures are often the sites of lost treasure and many adventures.

Castle and Ruins is mostly game rule independent and a real treasure if you want to fill your campaign world with an economic setting where castles are actually produced and fits with the overall setting. In far to many game worlds you can find castles [...]

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.
