Blood & Treasure 2nd Edition Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Blood & Treasure is the fantasy role-playing game for people who want to spend less time arguing over rules and more time playing, and the new 2nd Edition continues this tradition.

Compatible with old school games, it strives to be rules lite and options heavy.

You get ...

  • Thirteen character classes, as well as suggested variations on the existing classes
  • The classic fantasy races
  • A streamlined and easy optional feats system
  • Hundreds of spells and magic items - you can run games for years without running out of new things to try
  • Optional scientific treasures for those who like science-fantasy
  • Quick and easy rules for exploration, combat, mass combat, naval combat, strongholds and domains and a simple task resolution system
  • Guidance on designing dungeons, wilderness, settlements and even the cosmos
  • Suggestions on converting to other old school systems and changes between the first and second edition

Blood & Treasure 2nd Edition is designed to give you years of enjoyment in just two volumes, this book and the forthcoming Blood & Treasure 2nd Edition Monster book, which features over 600 monsters to challenge players.

Blood & Treasure doesn't want to tell you what kind of fantasy game you should enjoy, it just wants to put all the tools in your hands and let you play YOUR GAME, YOUR WAY

Is the NOD Companion compatible with B&T 2e?

The NOD Companion is for 1st edition. The revised version of it is probably the one you would want since it fits perfectly with the 2E version. Its renamed Esoterica Exhumed.

Vancian but with all of the spells from the D20 srd. It has tons of magic options for the Spellcasters.

Is there a plan to do a Dead Tree version of this new edition...?

Currently, there is a POD version at Lulu. I haven't leapt into the POD here at Drivethru/RPGnow yet, but might in the future. And I apologize for not replying much earlier, to this and other questions - I was unaware of them. From what I can tell, there's no scheme by which publishers are notified of comments on products (though I'm probably just missing it).

PDF not working.
Bought the rulebook but many pages just don't work. Display issues.
PDF size 18.2 MB (19,108,333 bytes). Tried with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2015.010.20060 and foxit reader 6.1.

I downloaded the thing again (in a zip file) and it was fine the second time.

Questions about the Monsters book, please answer:
1) Will there be more pictures of monsters than in the 1st edition?
2) Any estimation on when it will be ready?

There seems to be something wrong with the full-size preview. I can't get it to show properly--and I tried two different browser programs.

I'd consider updating if the multi-classing rules are fixed.

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.
