The Overlords: Fantasy Battlescape Wargame is a unique strategy wargame where players take control of an Overlord and a small army of Monsters. The goal of the player to to venture forth with that army to recruit and expand their army of Monsters and to wage war against the other players.

Overlord's unique "Battlescape" game system turns each hex territory on the main game board into a separate battle board. Each terrain type offers a different "battlescape" board to play on. When two armies clash, both armies are moved over to the Battlescape for that terrain type, where that individual battle will actual take place. In this manner, each battle between monster armies is a separate tactical engagement.

There are three ways to achieve victory. The first of these seems simple enough, though is only simple if your opponent is really "bad". If you can engage and destroy the enemy Overlord in battle, you win. Failing that, victory can be achieved by strategically beating your opponents and capturing all of their Keeps. To that end, special hexes on the main game board, called "Chaos Gates" allow armies to move quickly across the map from one Chaos Gate to another, providing a way to seriously out flank other players. But that's a sword that cuts both ways, plus the pesky fact that travel through the Chaos Gates is completely random, so you might not end up where you hoped. Lastly, if you find you do not have hours to dedicate to a single game, you may play using victory point conditions.

Keep in mind that your "player opponents" are not all that you have to worry about. Each and every hex you move into brings the possibility of battle. When a player's amy is not present, there is a chance you will be engaged by NPC monster armies there, where that army is based upon the type of terrain of the hex. Additionally, special hexes on the map contain towers, where non random, challenging NPC encounters await. Victory over such challenges can provide great bonuses to your Overlord and to your army, but don't dare think this will be easy.

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.
