The Maelstrom Companion


The Maelstrom RPG, published in 1984 was a small but popular game, released partly on the success of the Fighting Fantasy books, also from Puffin. Written by Alexander Scott, a teenager at the time, the game soon gathered a loyal following. Despite being in print for only a short time, the game has developed something of a cult following, and the herbal section has inspired many net-based RPG herbals.

In 2007, Arion Games acquired the license to re-release the original book as a pdf, and since its re-release has been very popular. However, the 24 years of game design since the original release have produced many new thoughts and theories, and Arion Games wanted to bring the game into the 21st century. Thus the companion was born. We wanted to plug a few gaps in the available livings, expand and clarify the combat system, especially gunpowder weapons, expand the magic system and provide some setting information. And here it is! We hope that this book will enhance your Maelstrom games and campaigns, and provide even more Tudor adventure.

It's a supplement that fills some important holes in the original game, including adding info on the Reformation. And seriously, any game set in this period that doesn't address one of the greatest problems of the time, would be lacking - so this was [...]

I can't fathom the original review posted here. I'd like to offer something I feel is more balanced, based on owning the PDF. Basic Summary: The book is an odds and sods expansion for the original game. This gives it a disjoin [...]

What the Maelstrom Companion does is try to fill gaps in the original Maelstrom game. Maelstrom is the kind of game that is open enough in design that you can plug in pretty much any mechanic and get a desire playable effect; that is to say if you want [...]

A nice idea, poorly executed. There are a few things in here which should be great. Alchemical recipes, firearm rules, new classes including the barber-surgeon, a lengthy description of the town of Bury St Edmunds. But they are poorly thought ou [...]

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.
