Twenty-Five Personalities of the Kingdom of Babylon


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  First Edition products have been superseded by a new Second Edition, which introduces a new ruleset and significantly more setting information.

Need the best-made leather armor in the whole city of Babylon?  Go see the leatherworker Bahli-bašti, but make sure to bring your purse.

Need to research a Sumerian ritual, not performed since the Deluge?  If anyone knows where to find more information on it, it’ll be Amat-Marduk, a naditum familiar with the archives of Esagil.

When a wealthy awilum is found dead near the Market Gate, will players be able to track down the bloodthirsty fortune-teller Nanna-girgal, or will the incredulous judge Rip’a-malik attempt to arrest them first?

How is the moneylender Lawi-la-Addu implicated in the night-time burglaries of the acrobat Ana-Ayya-uzni, and what, if anything, does his latest spate of bad investments have to do with the criminal alewife Ruttum?

Twenty-Five Personalities of the Kingdom of Babylon supplies twenty-five pregenerated, non-player characters appropriate to a fantasy roleplaying game set in the world of 18th Century BCE Mesopotamia.  These individuals are not kings, queens or other powerful, socially remote officials whom players are unlikely to affect through their actions.  Instead, they are interesting, unique personalities whose involvement can add a bit of flavor to adventures in Mesopotamia, or around whom gamemasters can create whole scenarios.

As with our previous material for Babylon On Which Fame and Jubilation Are Bestowed, all game mechanics are presented using BFJB’s “classless” d20 system.  However, this material is easily adapted to any system of your choice, or to other fantastic campaigns set at other times and places in the Ancient Near East.

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.
