- Basic Fighting Styles! Learn about single weapon, double weapon, two-handed and weapon and shield fighting styles!

- Advanced Fighting Styles! Whether you want to benefit from the bad hand deception, cloak’s skullduggery, diviner’s trick, double inverted grip, Hovaran’s pretense or any of a dozen more advanced fighting styles, this section has it all!

- Prestige Classes and Packages! Here are the dwarven axelord, gnome tumbler, halfling slinger, hand of the deity, iron fist, melee weapon master, ultimate archer and voyageur!

- Dueling Societes! Whether visiting the Disotal Academy, seeking an audience with the Swords of the Circle, or petitioning the Unvolen Adventurer’s Guild, characters discover new dueling societies, while DMs gain new organizations to add to the world around them.

- Common Dueling Weapons, Accessories and Armor! From the adarosh to the two-bladed, this section contains a wide variety of dueling swords, as well as new weapon accessories, and common legal and illegal dueling armors.

- New Feats! Whether you prefer the dirty sneak, double strike, effective footwork, expert feint, masterful parry, off-hand guard or twin-weapon fighting, there’s a feat here for you.

- Skill Options! New ways to use Balance, Bluff, Intimidate, Jump, Knowledge, Sense Motive and Sleight of Hand await a clever duelist’s eyes!

- New Spells! Along with detailed listings for spells commonly used in duels, this section also contains new spells, such as create obstacle, taunt, and vanishing armor!

- Types of Duels! Choose to fight to the grave, to the death, to the pain, to first blood (or second blood), to the knockdown, to the knockout, and to the fall. Learn about ranged duels, jousts, and even duels of mental intellect over the chessboard!

- Provoking a Duel! Learn about the unintended offense, intended offense, vengeful offense, and the honor or reputation settlement! If you want to provoke a duel, this is how!

- Steps of a Duel! Discover how to proceed with a duel, once you’ve initiated one! Find out about seconds, moderators, spectators, and the rules of magic.

- Duels and the Law! Read about how kingdoms regard duels and those who practice them, as well as punishments for illegal dueling.

- Dungeon Master Tips! Along with details on integrating duels into your game, this section provides suggestion for the rules of interpretation - how you may interpret the rules to better represent a character.

 

 

Although usable in any campaign, this 64-page supplement uses the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting as a base for descriptive text and cultural details. In this realistic, dynamic world, complex political alliances mix with marauding bands of humanoids, and medieval technology and culture come face to face with magic and the fantastic. Whatever type of adventure you seek, you can find it here.

 

This book is intended for use by d20 or D&D players and Dungeon Masters (DMs) and HackMaster players and GameMasters (GMs) alike. To use this book in a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, you need a copy of the D&D Player's Handbook and the Dungeon Master's Guide.

By the Sword is a fun little book with some great information, HOWEVER the way they formatted it cramming each entry with Hackmaster AND D&D information makes it a little hard to read. I really wish they would have just split the book in half and had [...]

Format
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.
