Get Lost in the Heart of the Byzantine Empire!

Constantinople . . . one of the greatest cities of all time. GURPS Hot Spots: Constantinople, 527-1204 A.D. presents the jewel of the eastern Roman empire, detailed through more than 600 years of history. This gamer-geared guidebook brings the city to life in a hundred ways:

  • Discover the breathtaking sights as you approach the city from land or sea, plus locales inside the imposing walls. A handy map points out major landmarks.
  • Learn the history of this magnificent metropolis, from its early beginnings in the seventh century B.C. to its Ottoman conquest in 1453. It includes a timeline and GURPS City Stats descriptions for three iconic eras.
  • Understand the apparatus of power that guided the city and empire to greatness, and how it was ahead of its time. Learn about the importance of the emperor and his household; the various civic, religious, and military officials; the relationship between the Orthodox Church and the state; and the spectacles used to keep it all together. Decipher the relative standing of various offices with a handy table showing equivalent GURPS Rank and Status levels. Get tips on how to fight battles with the Byzantine military and GURPS Mass Combat.
  • Be introduced to several prominent political and cultural figures, with backgrounds, physical descriptions, and personality profiles.
  • Get a glimpse into daily life: basics of the economy, family life, clothing, food, education, technology, sports (and other entertainment), and more.
  • Note the adventure seeds throughout, providing exciting ways to insert Constantinople into your campaign. The city makes a destination for historical or pseudo-historical intrigue; it also works in countless crossover campaigns, including GURPS Banestorm, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, GURPS Infinite Worlds, and more.
  • Delve deeper using the extensive bibliography, including suggestions for appropriate music.

With GURPS Hot Spots: Constantinople, 527-1204 A.D., you'll discover a city that can only be described as iconic . . . in more ways than one!

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.
