The Second Age of Man is a savage time of sorcery and bloodshed, where strong men and beautiful women battle with warlords, priests, magicians and gladiators to carve a bloody path to the Throne of Lemuria...

Barbarians of Lemuria is a heroic role-playing game set firmly in the sword-and-sorcery genre. Lemuria is a post-apocalyptic world thousands of years in the future and unrecognisable to anyone from today. The continent has returned to an almost prehistoric state – a land of steaming jungles, vast untamed wildernesses, horror-filled swamplands, and sunbaked deserts. Massive man-eating beasts roam the unexplored regions of Lemuria and beyond, from island-sized sea serpents capable of sinking wargalleys, to the huge jungle-dwelling dinosaurs that can swallow a man whole. 

Plain cover versions can be found here.

Included with the pdf purchase are:
- the main pdf in full colour
- the main pdf, print-friendly version
- a high resolution pdf map of Lemuria
- cover with artwork
- plain cover.

The BoL system is now available for adventures in all settings, called Everywhen. See here for the core book and available settings.

I bought the standard hardcover, but managed to select the buying option of physical book only. I meant to buy the book AND the pdf (there is no cost difference).

Is there any way we can fix this?

No, BoL itself does not. But the forthcoming Wyrd Sails: Vikings vs. Eldritch Horrors supplement written by Garnett Elliott for EveryWhen: Powered by Barbarians of Lemuria will have a few.

When I click on the link for Everywhen in the above description (or the category on the main page), it goes to an empty page with just the "Everywhen" graphic and a statement that there are no items.

If I order the print edition do I get the cover shown in the BOL_Cover_artwork.pdf or do I get the blank cover on the actual rules PDF?

Please tell me the download includes a print-friendly version of the PDF that won't kill my toner-budget. Even at grayscale, I don't want background art on my PDFs. When I want to read something I want to see "text" and not something trying to compete for space on an art gallery wall.

I obtained a copy of the first edition PDF available for free at the Beyond Belief Games website and liked it thoroughly. Enough to want to support continued development. That was, until I saw the preview here. *cringe*. Background Art.. dammit. Just Stop Already!

Speaking of the "actual" art.. there's only a couple of art examples that one can see in the preview. But based upon that and from what I can see of the art on the other material in this product line, then I must say it completely lacks the pulp "swords and sorcery" vibe. It looks like Saturday morning cartoons. I half expect to see Skeletor somewhere. Sorry.. it just turns me off.

If there's a printer...See more

As has been stated, yes there is a printer-friendly version. Sorry that the art and layout is not to your tastes. However I believe the ratings show how others appreciate the book.

2.7 was a minor editorial update we made for the limited edition PoD available through the Kickstarter, which we also made available to the regular PoDs available on RPGNow / DriveThruRPG. It has not yet made its way to the electronic pdf.

We are currently busy getting Everywhen (the core set of rules for BoL:ME) ready for release (and the three setting books). When they are complete will will look to getting the electronic BoL:ME pdf updated.

The electronic pdf version has no impact on the PoD version. the PoD is at the most current version.

This is XXX-backwards, Phil! Usually it is the PDF which is updated first & the hardcopy later if at all. The non-updated PDF has an impact: you are missing at least one sale, mine... as I do not want to order a hardcopy until I have seen the (few, needed) corrections!

It is was it is and I explained why above. The PoD document is different to the electronic pdf document. If you don't want to buy the most up-to-date version of the hardcopy because the electronic pdf is missing some *very minor* edits, then I can't help you at this time.

No. The previous version was Legendary, this version is Mythic. It uses it's own system.

When this says "Mythic edition" does that mean it uses the "Mythic" rules put out by Word Mill?

No, Barbarians of Lemuria has nothing to do with Mythic Roleplaying Game, The Mythic GM Emulator or Word Mill. The previous edition of BoL was the Legendary one, this is the Mythic one. This ties nicely to a BoL mechanic where a legendary dice result can be boosted to an even more unforgettable & devastating mythic result by spending a hero point.

On the other hand, BoL: Mythic Edition does include a saga generator to help the GM create adventures by throwing a handful of dice. It takes a few pages at the end of the book.

Can other publishers publish material compatible with or based on Barbarians of Lemuria? I'm asking both because I've seen other companies and projects based on BoL and I think that Barbarians of Lemuria's system would work for a project I'm personally working on. Thanks.

Thanks for the link, but would that cover new games that use the BoL engine or just supplements for Barbarians of Lemuria? Sorry if I'm just missing something, but I can't tell.

No it wouldn't include different settings using the BoL system. You would need to contact Simon for that.

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.
