Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, B&W Book

Broadsword is an epic fantasy adventure game that seamlessly brings together elements from classic board games with elements from tabletop roleplaying games to result in something truly extraordinary — not quite a full RPG, but much more than a simple board game.

Inside this package, you will find:

  • Complete Rulebook - Everything you need to play the game. Just grab some friends and either a gridded game mat or a virtual tabletop and get ready to start your adventure!

This does not include any other components of the game.

To get a better Broadsword experience, make sure to also pick up the Quest Book titled "Conquering Despair" and all the extras - character sheet, tokens, VTT cards, and more!

Although the Complete Rulebook includes descriptions of every card available in the game, for the most complete gaming experience, get Just the Cards printed, and hold the power of all your spells and skills in your hand!

In addition, Bloody Eye Games has partnered with Heroic Maps to provide all the tilesets used in the "Conquering Despair" Quest Book in one convenient bundle, and at a 20% discount. Click the image below to check it out!

Game looks good, are any basic map tiles included? If not which Heroic Maps set would you recommend? I wouldn't want to buy the bundle for $75 just the minimal to get started.

Hi Joe, sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

There is only one map included in the Extras package, custom created for the game. I can't resell the others. As for recommending a set, I would suggest your choice of Heroic Maps' Geomorphs sets. Even if you have a map or tileset that doesn't match the image in the Quest Book, you can adapt it as you see fit.

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.
