The Marquis of Ferrara

Selected Option:

A story game about passion and politics in Renaissance Italy.

The Marquis of Ferrara is dead. 


Niccolò d’Este, the Lord of Ferrara, Modena, Parma and Reggio. The bastard son who inherited the beautiful city at just ten years old. The brave general of the Papal Armies that once held the mad Duke Visconti of Milan in check. The generous patron to whom countless works of art were dedicated. The wise statesman who assembled such a court that it was envied from Roma to Venezia. The Marquis is dead, and the whole of Ferrara mourns.

And one of you murdered him.

This is a GM-less role-playing story game for 4-6 players.

In a single evening, players will explore characters as they struggle for control of the city and of the hearts and minds of their fellow nobles.

This digital version is a bookmarked PDF for screen viewing.

Too early to review, but this definitely looks worth getting, especially as a Deal of the Day.

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.
