Rulers: Core Rulebook

Watermarked PDF

Rulers is a tabletop roleplaying game of civilisation and conquest. Create a world, populate it with kingdoms, resources and cultures. Define your realm, forge a dynasty, and build your rmpire by trade, politics, or brute strength.

Rulers: Core Rulebook contains all the rules and instructions you need to play this tabletop roleplaying game. Featuring more than 25,000 words across some 68 pages (this rulebook has no art).

This game was created out of passion, for me and my friends to play when we were at University. Since then I have tinkered with it until it has reached the form it is in today.

Admiteddly, I am not entirely satisfied with Rulers. If I were to start it today I would approach it quite differently. That being said, me and my friends have had a lot of fun with it - from weaponising the local Laser Pheasants, to the successful invasion of the Demon Body-Snatchers - and I would like to share Rulers with people like you, while I focus on other projects (for the time being).

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.
