Ambition and Avarice is an action-adventure roleplaying game with an easy-to-understand OSR chassis. The characters are rough and ready adventurers. No more moralizing paladins and clerics. Even the religious characters are willing to get a little dirty in the pursuit of their goals.
The game brings a fresh look to medieval fantasy with 10 unique classes that each bring something special to the table. Each class features; 

- Expertise in a class-specific task; like the Sorcerer's counterspelling ability or a Cultist's ability to sacrifice humanoids to curry favor with their god.

- Identification of something in the world; like the Priest's ability to identify divine symbols and beings or the Savage's ability to spot weakness in combat.

- Companions to serve as henchmen; like the Knave's ability to recruit spies or the Conjurer's ability to create imps to serve them. 

The five magic-using classes have a varied selection of new and exciting spells. There are easy methods to create your own enchantments, raise unique undead to serve you, or craft cursed items to give to your enemies. The non-magical classes have their own rich choices and don't fade away in importance as the magical characters advance in level. 

These classes can then be combined with 10 classic fantasy races; from elves and dwarves to orcs and lizardfolk. You can combine them however you wish, creating everything from goblin knights to dwarven brigands.

The entire package is designed to allow quick character generation and presented in a format that is clear and easy to read. The text is packed with expanations of not just the rules, but the reasons behind the rules. It is an ideal choice to hand to a new player who is looking to get into the great game, but turned away by thick rulebooks with byzantine organization. The adventuring mechanics are also OSR compatible and allow easy integration with a variety of old school campaign material. You can pick up this game, grab an old module, and get playing in a very short amount of time.

Game on!

Three years later and a handful of change, this is still one of my favorite OSR style games. I hope the author releases a future version based upon The Black Hack system. That would certainly rock my socks off.

PURCHASER magic items either. It gives the impression of being a complete old-school game and it is beautifully written but it looks like the author ran out of steam before he finished the project. Shame.

I'm fairly sure I wouldn't have bought it if I'd known but ti does have some really good bits. Shame.

Reply about both your comments, as someone who ran the game for several sessions and took the time to get some prep done:
The lack of monsters is negligible at best. You are given way more than sufficient tools to produce any monster you'd like easily.
As for the lack of magic items, the unspoken assumption is that this is an OSR game, making magic items both rare and unique. Thus, it is assumed that you either draw inspiration from the spells or make up your own, with little regard to anything but rule of cool.
At least that's how I experienced the game and saw it.

Um...loads of spells. No monsters. Odd.

@Malcolm M.: I saw that glaring hole in the class lineup as well and offer you this in response:
It's a Warrior class I've written up. I think it fills the niche quite well and stacks up well against the other melee classes.

Original elektronisch
Eingescanntes Buchformat
Diese eBooks wurden durch einen tatsächlichen Scan eines gedruckten Exemplars dieses Buches erstellt; das Ergebnis wurde dann in ein PDF umgewandelt. Jede Seite wurde durch eine Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Software analysiert, um den gedruckten Text zu erkennen. Das Ergebnis des OCR-Vorgangs wurde dann unsichtbar auf den Seiten platziert, damit du den Text durchsuchen kannst. Trotzdem kann es vorkommen, dass Text vor manchen Hintergründen sowie an Handschriften angelehnte Schriftarten nicht von der OCR-Software erkannt wurde - diese Texte können leider nicht durchsucht werden. Ähnliches gilt für einige besonders dicke Bücher, die umgewandelt werden mussten und daher keinen durchsuchbaren Text enthalten. Einige besonders alte und vergriffene Bücher können sogar nur in Form eingescannter Bilder angeboten werden.
Originär elektronische Formate
Diese eBooks wurden direkt aus einer elektronischen Original-Datei erstellt und sind daher komplett durchsuchbar. Auch ihre Datei-Größe ist meist deutlich kleiner als die von Büchern, die eingescannt werden mussten. Die allermeisten neueren Bücher liegen in originär elektronischer Form vor.
