Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, B&W Book

Welcome to Sherwood Forest, a place of mystery and excitement. Band together to oppose the forces of the Sheriff and Prince John in England during the Third Crusade. Create your characters to do whats best for England and King Richard by protecting his interests at home.

This setting book allows you to play in the Medieval England of the period of the Third Crusades. There are classes designed specifically for that period. The book is designed to not only emulate the historical period, but also the mythical one as well. Play in any level you would like from historical to mythical, emulating various novels, stories and tv shows about Robin Hood.

This setting can be played in either historic or mythical mode. Historic is more realistic, leaving out magic, but in mythical mode, magic has been added to the setting allowing you to play in the fantastic. In addition to this we have a special type of Action Points called Swashbuckling Points. What these do is allow your character to do the impossible, from swinging on a rope chandelier to climbing up the wall using only a knife. In a style that emulates the early fantastical stories of the genre.

Is the Savage Worlds version of this setting ever going to be posted on this site (RPGnow/DriveThruRPG)? I believe I have seen it on another site, but it would be nice if it was open for availability here, as this site is probably the best I have seen at managing these products. And besides that one, are any other system versions of this setting upcoming?

I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. We are in the process of revising the Savage Worlds version, and will put it back up for sale when we are done. It was not suppose to be available at any site during the revision, so we will have to check around and make sure its pulled from there as well. And to answer your question, currently the existing versions, plus the upcoming Savage Worlds revision are all that are planned. Thank you for your patronage.

Thank you for your reply. I got the old version pdf at Paizo's website (the Pathfinder guys). The old versions of the d20 version of Sherwood, and a possibly old version of Gaslight Victorian Fantasy (also the d20 version) are also available there as PDFs alongside your more recent stuff. I don't see why you would need to pull those PDFs completely since you should still get money from the prior edition sales [although maybe up-marking the price would help, to encourage buying the newer version(s)], but it is you call. I think you would be fine just focusing on the new version, but I am also someone that likes having older versions of these books to compare and contrast changes over time.

Either way, the new version sounds fun. I look forward to it.

Well, we do want to encourage people to purchase the latest version, so we will think about your suggestions (thank you very much for offering them). I do hope that you enjoy the products you purchase from us, and we try to make everything perfect, but sometimes things fall through the cracks.

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.
