The Way of War - Full Version

Watermarked PDF

The Way of War is a tactical turn-based role-playing game for the table top. The game can be played with action figures or miniatures and is a hybrid of tactical strategy games and role-playing games. Buying this product you will get a manual for playing the game with action figures and another manual for playing the game with miniatures. As this is the Core Rulebook you will need this book in order to play any of the Campaign Books.

The game setting is set in a real 3-D environment with characters that improve with experience and training. Game turns go back and forth in the classic "you go, I go" system. Each character gets a certain amount of Action Points per turn, which determine what that character can do that turn. Moving, shooting, operating a vehicle, interacting with terrain, using equipment all costs Action Points limiting what you can do each turn. There is also an interrupt system allowing you to interrupt the opponent during their turn if they move into your line of sight.

Some of the features include:

  • Characters that improve with experience
  • Over 150 different types of weapons (guns, explosives, melee weapons)
  • Over 100 different types of equipment
  • 25 different types of armor
  • 6 different character cores, each with at least 3 specializations (providing 21+ different character styles)
  • 30 different Stats
  • Over 100 different Talents
  • 60 different types of Vehicles (land, air and water)
  • Over 45 different types of Special Training (Sniper, Pilot, Machine Gunner, etc)
  • A Morale system
  • A Random Mission Generator
  • Animal rules
  • A Mysterious Escape the Dome Campaign

As of August 2020, Version 3.0 the Layout Version has been released. This new version is more organized, but may require more arts and crafts time. To find out more about my game visit my website:

The site was down for a few years including 2017, but it is up and running again, so no the game has not been abandoned.

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.
