Black Death

Watermarked PDF

Black Death is a grim romp through Europe set during a fantastic version of its religious wars. Disease, damnation, musket fire, holy relics and landsknechts - it's all here. Roll up a character, drop some groschen on a zweihander and buff coat, and set out to make a fortune ... or maybe just survive. All you need is a pencil, some paper, this book and some good old fashioned six-sided dice.

How does magic work? Is it a make-it-up-as-you-go type of thing, or is my pdf missing rules?

John, how many of my images did you use in this one? I'm pinching my pennies at the moment, but I might pick this one up if you've got a lot of my stuff in it.

John, does this use the same Melee/Wizard style system as Swords and Sandals? I really like the magic system in that book. I just ordered two print copies on Lulu. I'd by a print of this, if it's the same system when available. It's refreshing to see complete games with options in less than 50 pages.

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.
