Maelstrom was one of the classic Roleplaying games of the 1980’s,
innovative in design and setting alike.

Revised, rewritten and updated for a new gaming generation, Maelstrom
Domesday is a game of supernatural investigation in Anglo-Norman
England. Rebellion, horror and fear stalk the villages, towns and cities of
the new Norman Kingdom, and only a brave and disparate band can
prevent a decline into anarchy.

A lifepath system creates characters that are both deep and yet competent
for the tasks ahead. Rewritten and expanded rules provide fast and
flexible gameplay whilst still covering most in-play situations. The
original Maelstrom free-form magic system allows a magical character to
accomplish almost anything…at a price.

This core book also includes a full guide to life in 1086 and a richly
described setting complete with dozens of important personages,
adventure hooks and locations. There is enough in this one book for
years of play and hundreds of adventures.

So grab your dice, open this book and enter the world of Maelstrom

Is it worth buying the Maelstrom Fantasy Monster book for extra monsters?

Are there Downtime rules for Maelstrom anywhere. The campaign has 1 adventure a year so i'd like to see what happens between those adventures.

There will be, as soon as Vol 2 of the Campaign is published. It is not far away, but again is a huge book with a lot in and is taking longer than expected. Should not be too long though...

I'm confused what are the valid books for the new edition?

Any of the books with the brown cover and white text are for Maelstrom Domesday. (Investigators Guide, Beast of Ledsham, Maps & Charts, Yuletide Spirit, North Yorkshire Moors) and also Maelstrom Gothic and Maelstrom Rome. The other books were released for the original Maelstrom, but will still work with MD with some adaptation.

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.
