Ptolus: A Player's Guide to Ptolus


A city of mysteries, secrets, and dark histories, Ptolus lies forever in the shadow of a towering stone spire reaching impossibly high into the sky, itself an enigma and a reminder of evil long past. Ptolus is a place where the supernatural is expected, and treachery lies around every corner—or is it that the supernatural lies around every corner and treachery is expected? Either way, Ptolus is a city of danger, magic, intrigue, and above all: adventure.

“Some place needs to be the worst place in the world. Why not here?”—Brusselt Airmol, well-known rogue adventurer

This 32-page guide is designed to introduce you as a player to the fundamentals of Ptolus, so that you can create and run a character with plenty of knowledge about the world. The city is rich enough in detail that it’s difficult to absorb it all at once, so keep this information handy to reference while you play in a Ptolus campaign—and be prepared to discover that what you learn in these pages is only the very briefest of overviews.

The guide includes a full map of the city of Ptolus, as well as an introduction to the city and sections on campaign look and feel, the various local districts, noble houses, organizations, history, NPCs, religion, the larger world, character creation, magic, equipment, and more.

All this material also appears in the Ptolus book, which builds from the information found in this player’s guide.

You can download the Player’s Guide to Ptolus free here as a PDF or buy it in print at your game store for only $2.99. For more information, visit

The precept of the Ptolus campaign setting, Monte Cook does it again with this explorative adventure - this is the 4th time I have run it using the Pathfinder rules - and its extremely exciting. [...]

A must-have for any fans of Ptolus! It really sets the mood for the players and they really feel like they know the city, which they do, of course. A great idea to make a player's guide to a setting, saves the GM a lot of work! [...]

Monte Cook's Ptolus was a well thought-out incredibly detailed product. However, his campaign world suffered from unfortunate timing. When the bottom dropped out of third edition, it kind of left his books stranded. If you want to know about Ptolus, [...]

An RPG Resource review: This work is an attempt to get around that common problem of your character knowing more about his surroundings than his player does! Distributed as a free PDF or sold as a bundle to pass around the table so that each player [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
