Dark Albion: The Rose War is a 275 pages long, OSR RPG campaign setting, set in a fantasy medieval England during the War of the Roses (15th century). Think England + sorcery + demons and fairies + some fantasy twists to the world. 80% of the book is system neutral, so can be used with most role-playing games. Nonetheless, this book is designed with OSR games in mind, and will run best with Fantastic Heroes & Witchery (also available on RPGNow/Drivethru), and similar games such as Osric, Swords & Wizardry, etc., as well as the 5th edition of the most popular fantasy RPG! Note lastly that layout and art have been given great care to make the most visually pleasing book as possible: this means 10 maps, and two illustrations per pages on most of the 275 pages!

The zipped file is 140 MB, and contains the fully bookmarked PDF file of the book (61 MB), plus 19 maps (in high resolution enabling large printing), including both GM (hexmaps) and player variants of the eight major maps.

DAA1 - The Ghost of Jack Cade on London Bridge, an introductory, 1st level adventure for Dark Albion is now available on RPGNow!

As a big fan of medieval, historical based RPGs, this is my go to book. A wealth of information that is system neutral and more vibrant than any make-believe setting.

Are there any plans to offer this book as a Print + PDF bundle? I'm interested in owning it in both formats, and I noticed the adventure DAA1 is available in such a bundle.

I must solve the problem I have with Lightning Source that prints dull colors on the cover. I didn't get any satisfying answer so far...

Hi! Just bought this and looking forward to reading it. The problem is that I use a tablet to read RPG books, and the file is so big I'm not able to download it. Is it possible to make a slimer version? I don't remember seeing a book this size before.

The download file is 140 MB, but the PDF itself is around 60 MB (the remaining are maps). I could make a lighter PDF of the book, but it will have low resolution images, and that will not look nice. (And I would need an email to send the lighter PDF.)

I saw there was an option of adding it to dropbox. So I did that, and managed to download it to my tablet from there. Thanks anyways, problem solved. Looking forward to reading it.

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.
