The gravest threats of Dungeon World do not always reside in a stinking lair, troglodyte cave, or windy ruin.

Some are smiling faces in drawing rooms and salons, whispers in the wrong ear, and rendezvous by

moonlight. Some are rough brigands upon the high road, or leering pirates on the briny deep.

Welcome to L'Empereur's Salon!

Within you'll find

  • New Folk of the Realm
  • New Monsters
  • New Fronts
  • New Gear
  • New Item Tags
  • New Magic Items
  • and a new Playbook: the dashing Swashbuckler!

What can I say that wasn't already said? The class looks like it would work well in play (I have yet to try it though). The first section, "Folk of the Realm" has a couple antagonists, statted out individually they look like they could [...]

At Last, the swashbuckler class that everyone has wanted in dungeon world since its creation is here. The list of archetypes for your game is also a fantastic addition [...]

Overall, the Swashbuckler as a class looks balanced and has an above average amount of options. The monsters, magic items and tags complement each other and the tone of the writing. However, some of the effects on the items and moves seem a lit [...]

I'm not as familiar with Dungeon World as I am with say, Dungeons and Dragons, but I have enjoyed the time I spent playing not that long ago. In that light, this book is a nice supplement to your game, if you're looking for more to do in the political [...]

Where to begin with reviews has always been a bit tricky for me. Let's start with the good, I suppose. This supplement is very well written. It's put together well, and the diction of the overall piece is worded in a way that conveys the setting and is [...]

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.
