Heroes Rule!

Ultimate Rulership is a massive expansion to the 5th Edition rules for building and ruling a domain of your very own! Building upon the rules introduced in Kingdoms from  Legendary Games, Ultimate Rulership provides new rulership edicts for festivals, espionage, and more, as well as expanded guidelines on founding and investing in your kingdom alongside a vast array of noble titles and forms of address. Build villages into towns and cities as your population expands with your territory, and enhance them with magical improvements, natural advantages, over a dozen new buildings from aeries to lumberyards, or construct magnificent hanging gardens, lighthouses, or a magnificent colossus, or an entire exotic settlement from cliff dwellings to treetop cities and underwater cities! Add to that a new system of danger in managing kingdom events and over 70 settlement attributes to make each city unique, from natural geography like resettled ruins and strategic location to a legendary marketplace or rumormongering citizens, or even magical attributes like a planar crossroads, slumbering monster, or a god-ruled city! Plus dozens of tables to reference every rule. Your heroes can establish their own domains, raising cities and monuments to their glory and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the campaign world, striking out into a position of leadership with amazing depth and detail.

Grab this fantastic 48-page 5E supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary!

If we already purchased Ultimate Rulership, how different is this version?

Kingdoms is available for Fantasy Grounds VTT. Any plans for Ultimate Rulership as well? If so, ETA?

We've got a lot of stuff in the queue at Fantasy Grounds, so yes it's somewhere on the way, but unfortunately I can't give you an ETA on when they'll get to it in the pile. I think their coders have been mostly focused on adventures, but hopefully they can peel some time away to integrate this book as well.

Great. ThanX for the reply. I've coded a few things for them privately, but am not a member of Smiteworks, nor a representative of theirs. Just a huge fan! Love "Kingdoms"!

If I own Ultimate Campaign for Pathfinder, can I make use of these rules without also needing to purchase Kingdoms?

You can. Kingdoms handles the 5E rules conversion and cleans up and includes some additional material that is not in the Pathfinder Ultimate Campaign, but you can probably manage it if you choose to go that route.

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.
