It now has been a year since our gaming group finished a long champaign using Mundus RPG! Even though I wasn't the GM, Mundus provided our group an awesome ground for exploration and character development, that I would truly recommend for anyone who has any interest in historical Japan mixed with epic fantasy!

Both the detailed combat system and the 'game lore' were used extensively during our champaign, and they combined nicely with a story extending from demon hunting and Samurai traditions into epic battles and high-level political intrigue. Additionally, this game was a perfect playgroung for people who like character optimization for combat situations. And the feeling when you finally got your ninja with those nine tails... Damn, it was awesome!

I don't get why you would have a gender pronoun section and declare you're going to use "she" as your default. The entire point of not using "he" as a default pronoun is to be inclusive and not alienate people. Using "she" doesn't accomplish that goal, it simply marginalizes a different group of people.

The pdf seems to be heavily broken. The first page give an error, and the third asks for XFZMFZ+Roboto-bold police. Incidently half of the document show blank pages. If you have any solution I'll be very happy.

Have you tried to download the pdf again? I'm suspecting a possible file corruption since this is the first time I hear of this kind of an issue. What pdf reader are you using?

MundusRPG really stands out with the original Japan-oriented setting and clear and precise yet fairly complex rules. Plenty of combat and magic techniques and combinations to explore and lots of detail has also been given to develop the feeling of the world. Browsing through the games in DriveThruRPG I get the feeling that MundusThis really is no run-of-the-mill rpg. This game is a real find for players who enjoy cool, detailed and gaming oriented asian/anime combat.

So far Mundus seems to deliver what it promises. The world is interesting and the combat system seems well balanced and is of course what the game is mostly about. I am not a challenge oriented player myself, but could imagine challenge players enjoying this game. As a more storytelling inclined player I enjoyed the rich world, atmosphere and the "power hierarchy" (of characters) that introduced a genuine feel of dread and awe. This is the type of game you want to play long campaigns with.

Playing Mundus has been fun so far. Very interesting life-module based character creation that makes the characters with rich histories. Also the combat mechanics seems pretty balanced and versatile. Since it's such a huge book it has material for a long time.

The one thing that bugged me was it took some time to learn the system and the book. So it's not the lightest system & world out there. Still now that I spent the initial time and effort it's good fun. Especially since I've been in Japan for some time so I can use that and anime knowledge to create a very interesting settings in Tentaika.

I agree with Tuomas here. One of the reasons I got excited about Mundus was the fact that it felt familiar yet had so much to learn about. The game system itself can be a bit hard to handle but if you're interested in combat oriented game play and in-depth character customization, this game might be just the game for you.

So you guys know that it shows you as the publishers of this game, right?

Jacob R: Yes, and I like the transparency. Neither me or Tuomas were part of the developer team though, and I found it important to comment why it was interesting enough that we wanted to publish it.

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.
