Deadly, brutal mass mayhem at the behest of his lord is a knight’s duty. When thousands of men gather to kill and die, your knight can now lead the way. Battle is the never-ending scenario, the adventure that is repeated a hundred times, different every time.

This book is about your small unit amidst the dust and blood as hundreds of knights as confused or brave or murderous as you confront their fate with weapon in hand. Battle resolution uses the existing King Arthur Pendragon rules system, allowing you to concentrate on the over two dozen tactical maneuvers at your disposal.

The system allows your knight to be involved throughout the battle.

And yes, you can turn the tide of battle, for better or worse!

We did offer those who bought the 1st edition of the book a discount on this 2nd edition. Please adjust your DTRPG settings so that you receive emails from Nocturnal! We sent a coupon code to everyone who bought BoB 1st with a discount link to the 2nd edition. You are always welcome to contact us at info (at) However, when you compare these editions you'll see that the 2nd edition is much more than just errata.

I have to buy Book of Battle 2nd edition even if I have buy the first Edition. Since it seem to me that 2nd Edition is more an errata than anything else, i'm not so happy to have to buy the 2nd edition in full juste for slight modification. It seems to me unfair, as can I say in an understatement more akin to english people. May be a cut in price fot the 2nd edition would be a fair bargain.

Original electronic
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.
