Tribes and Armies

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  First Edition products have been superseded by a new Second Edition, which introduces a new ruleset and significantly more setting information.

Tribes and Armies is the first major supplement for Babylon On Which Fame and Jubilation Are Bestowed.


The first portion of this book fills several gaps in the setting information originally presented in the Core Rulebook, namely those associated with the pastoral and tribal populations of the Ancient Near East.

Players who want to create characters who hail from the world beyond the cities’ walls will find a discussion of pastoral existence, new skills, new weapons (like the lasso and the throw stick), and tribal magic items.  Additionally, for groups using the optional Feats system, this book includes several feats appropriate to migratory life in the arid world of Mesopotamia.


The second half details the organization and equipage of a city-state’s armed forces, and describes rules for adjudicating mass combat situations, along with associated tactics and a method by which player characters may help or harm opposed units.

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.
