Description:

EnnieSilver Ennie for the "Best setting" category at the ENnies Awards 2010!

Alephtar Games is proud to present the long-awaited supplement "Rome: life and death of the Republic" for Chaosium's Basic Roleplaying. Written by Pete Nash, it is the first non-Cthulhu supplement for BRP that Chaosium licensed to an independent publisher. We would like to spend man lines to describe what is in this 220-page sourcebook, but it is certainly a better idea to let a more competent voice speak:

"Any game master who wishes to run realistic campaigns set during the ancient Roman Republic will be thrilled with the lavish resource that Alephtar Games offers. These painstakingly researched rules not only provide a staggering array of historically accurate details, but , more importantly, they succeed in evoking that sense of otherness we feel when we come into contact with a culture very different from our own. It brings republican Rome to life as a dangerous setting ripe for adventure, often stepping modestly aside, providing juicy excerpts from ancient manuscripts and letting the Romans themselves describe their world to us directly. Riots, bribery, mythical creatures and spectacular chariot crashes - it's all here!"

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.
