Babylon On Which Fame and Jubilation Are Bestowed

Watermarked PDF

NOTE: This product is for the First Edition of Babylon On Which Fame and Jubilation Are Bestowed.  First Edition products have been superseded by a new Second Edition, which introduces a new ruleset and significantly more setting information.

Over 3,700 years ago, Hammu-rapi reigned in Babylon.  Known today for his law code, this Amorite king took a minor city-state located on a branch of the Euphrates and created an empire which rivaled any the world had yet seen.

Babylon On Which Fame and Jubilation Are Bestowed is a roleplaying game set in the world of Hammu-rapi, specifically the 25th year of his reign.  Whether players choose to situate their game in historic Mesopotamia, or in some fantastic variant, BFJB gives players and gamemasters the tools needed to experience the cultural milieu and personalities of Babylon in the eighteenth century BCE.

Included in this volume is a complete rule system, along with detailed entries on the peoples, cities and gods of the Kingdom of Babylon in 1767 BCE.  In addition to this book, a group needs only paper, dice and their imagination to play.

I am intrigued by the premise of this game -- love Bronze Age history, fiction, games, etc. Would you describe the game system?

OK. ...found the answer on the website: a classless d20 system.

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.
