I was wondering if the new buildings had their equivalents in Downtime Rules. If they don't, do you have any tips or guidelines into how to do an appropiate conversion from Kingdom Building rules to Downtime Building rules? Thanks, and sorry for the weird question.

I have a question, will this book be helpful if I don't play Pathfider? I could really use a guide like this for AD&D 2nd Edition, but this seems like it might work.

There are a small number of rules elements that relate to Pathfinder/3rd Edition rules, namely those related to skill ranks and to ability score bonuses (since those all use a standard system in 3.x/PF, rather than each stat having different modifiers in 1st/2nd Edition). It would be pretty easy to adapt those elements to 2nd Ed and to replace the bonuses for skill ranks with a similar bonus for a relevant non-weapon proficiency. Other than that, the numerical elements of the kingdom-building system are all self-contained and can work in any system.

Moi et mes joueurs adorons cette book, cependant il y a un problème a propos des règles.
Certains bâtiments de la table C2 n’ont pas leurs descriptions dans les pages p23-26.

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.
