War in the Sea, Sky, and Beyond!

Ultimate War (5E) takes mass combat far beyond the battlefield! This incredible accessory for 5th Edition campaigns builds on the basic kingdom-building and warfare rules in Kingdoms (5E) and expanded further in Ultimate Rulership (5E) and Ultimate Battle (5E), providing a richly immersive but still abstract integrated system for taking your traditional land battles into the skies above, across the seas beyond, and under the waves into the ocean depths without having to change systems. You'll find dozens of new vehicles, from traditional naval vessels like galleys and longships to ironclads and submersibles, alongside fantastic aerial vehicles from flying carpets and drogue wings to war rockets and solar sailers, with an array of specialized tactics and rules for dogfighting, ramming, strafing runs, flak, and more! We also bring you a ton of great material for siege warfare, including magical siege weapons and siege tactics from blockade to escalade! You'll also get exciting new command boons like cornucopia, surgical strike, and falling dusk, and a elegant new system of modular unit construction and interaction, allowing you to design combined arms units capable of a little bit of everything.

Whether you're using the base rules in Kingdoms or the advanced kingdom and warfare options in Ultimate Rulership or Ultimate Battle, your heroes can stake their claim to power in the campaign world, daring anyone to stand against the forces they command! In addition, we provide detailed record sheets for your domain and your military! Grab this fantastic 44-page 5E supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Need the Ultimate series books in a bundle.

We might do that at some point. We also are working on probably two more books - Ultimate Strongholds and Ultimate Armies - as separate volumes, after which we might look at possibly Kickstarting a compilation of the whole collection. That'd be sometime in the middle of next year at the earliest, though.

Sorry - we've just got a really stacked end of the year and beginning of 2019 already. Working to finish a bunch of "close to done" projects to get them ALL THE WAY DONE before opening up new ones. It's coming though!

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

Hi there - just saw your comment. They're completely separate products covering different elements of mass combat. Ultimate Battle focuses on big expansions of the base mass combat rules in our "Kingdoms" book - new tactics, command boons, equipment, special abilities - plus laying out the core concepts of battle zones and so on.

Ultimate War adds more of those elements, but it also takes the base system and broadens it out to integrate air, land, and sea battles as well as siege warfare.

I own both and they are excellent products, each adding to Kingdoms as a whole. They compliment eachother nicely and your not flipping back and forth to see if rule counter act eachother.
Nicely done in my humble opinion. You keep writing them and ill keep buying them

Thanks for the kind words. Glad you are enjoying them! If you have a minute or two, we'd love it if you could write up a quick review for either or both of those books!

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.
