Description:

Castle Builder Volume 1: Strongholds is the first installment in a 10-part series designed to help Game Masters and players plan their ideal fortifications in a step-by-step format from the ground up.

* Various material types ranging from the historic to the fantastic;

* How to consider the most logical layout for your needs and the story potential this holds;

* Ways to integrate a stronghold's existence with a local community; and,

* Everything you need to quickly lay out your stronghold with standardized rooms, as well as free-form guidelines to make anything uniquely suited to personalizing your designs!

Howard, Swords of Kos: Hekaton is the second entry in Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s fantasy fiction series and follows Swords of Kos: Necropolis. In this anthology, the island and city of Kos and the lands around it are explored through the stories of eleven authors and original illustrations and cartography by nine artists. All are set during the Hekaton, centennial observance of the great volcanic cataclysm that reawakened magic, the elder races, and all manner of fell monsters, in a fantasy world that draws upon the myths, legends, and history of the Mediterranean, Europe, and the Middle East.

Balsley, “The Misadventures of Bjoric” by Brendan Cass, “The Rite” by Christopher Van Deelen, “To the Dragon Apeiron” by Lissanne Lake, “Unfamiliar Ground” by Sharon Daugherty, “The Day Pateon Fnordseeker Gave Up Drinking” by Eric Lis, M.D., “Nithernons the Ale’er” by John Giddens, and “The Price of Land” by D.M.

This is probably a seminal RPG work. It's that good. This is not going to give you floorplans, but it's going to teach you all about the basic thought processes and considerations that went into real castle-building. This is a book that should sit next [...]

This book is good for giving the reader ideas on how to use the the structures in the book for the advancement of their game. It will not give you step by step instructions because it is about helping the reader use more care with something that may not [...]

A good read for GMs and Players, and not just for gaming purposes it's a good historical reference on it's own, and very well written so as not to get dry or boring, even through the minutiae. As a player since 1st edition I always liked making my charact [...]

A great product that works for any fantasy system, although the art is lacking. Thankfully I did not acquire this for the art. Instead I found a well written, and extremely useful product and I look forward to the rest of this product line [...]

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.
