Fantasy Roleplaying in Worlds of Epic Adventure

Curumir wiped blood from a gash over his eye as he peered through the fog and gloom of the pine woods. Storm clouds were gathering, casting a deathly darkness over the boughs surrounding him. The sweet smell of sap filled his head. If he weren't fleeing for his life, the place would almost seem pleasant.

He'd been hounded for days, and his pursuers were gaining ground. A vast cracking noise split the darkness, and a huge inhuman monstrosity, slimy grey skin mottled with black scales, charged out of the dim wood. A great snarl erupted from the beast's tusked maw as a group of ragged-clothed bandits rushed up behind it.

"Give up the staff, wizard" growled the leader, inching forward, gripping a poisoned blade in one gnarled fist.

Curumir muttered an oath, and stepped forward. Eldritch flames instantly leapt up the length of his blade, casting a greenish glow across his attackers.

"There will be blood spilled tonight, Ranalf" Curumir spat at the bandit king. "But it will not be mine."

With a cry, Curumir rushed forward...

Enter a world of fantastic adventure, where your destiny is limited only by your imagination. Where powerful sorcerers manipulate the very essence of reality, and where warriors decide the fate of kingdoms with blade and spear. A world of magic, myth, and menace... a MAGIC WORLD!

MAGIC WORLD is a self-contained fantasy roleplaying game using the classic Basic Roleplaying system. The game allows you to play characters in a world of fantasy, adventure, and excitement. The rules of MAGIC WORLD are simple to grasp, while having enough options and complexity to suit any gaming style. Characters grow in experience organically, without relying on artificial constructs such as classes, levels, etc. Any sort of fantasy character you can imagine, you can play. MAGIC WORLD contains:

    • Full rules for creating characters in a world of magic and fantasy.
    • A robust magic system with nearly one hundred spells. Any character may become a spell caster with the right combination of raw talent, and training!
    • Detailed, yet streamlined skills and combat rules.
    • Complete rules for nautical adventures.
    • A bestiary of more than sixty creatures to use as foes for the characters, or as the characters themselves! Play as any species imaginable: Human, Elf, Orc, Centaur, Troll, Talking Beast, and more!
    • Gamemaster advice, and resources.
    • A gallery of enchanted items which might be found in your characters adventures.
    • A complete sample campaign setting, "the Southlands", to jump start your adventures.
    • And more!

PURCHASER
When I bought this, there were three files: CHA2028book.pdf MagicWorld.pdf MagicWorld_Revised.pdf. They are each a copy of the book, with little in the way of obvious differences. Both of the MagicWorld* files say they are revision 1.1. I'm assuming that MagicWorld_Revised.pdf is the latest and greatest, but can someone please confirm?

Your best bet might be to go over to brpcentral and ask the author Ben Monroe. He frequently posts over there and should answer your query very quickly. Hard to say if your question will get answered here.

That said, as far as I could tell there isn't any material difference between the various files and yes this is the "latest and greatest."

I asked Ben about this on the RPG.net forum recently, and he said it should be the version with errata updates.

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.
