Maelstrom Rome

Selected Option:

Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

The year is 50AD and the Roman Empire stretches from Parthia to the Atlantic Ocean, from Britannia to Africa. But politics threaten
to tear Roman society apart and weird and supernatural events are common and frightening.

You, a normal Roman citizen of ordinary background, must gather other like-minded associates under the patronage of a significant
Senator and investigate these events.

This RPG is based upon the classic Maelstrom RPG from 1984, innovative for its time and still regarded as a cult classic.

This new game features:

# A full lifepath character creation system

# Easy to learn game rules

# A probability-based Magick system

# Rules for Cursing

# Standard people and supernatural creatures

# Setting information

# and much more.

So grab your Gladius and Scutum, take a deep breath and face the darkness that threatens Rome…

That is a very poor excuse for a "Full Sized Preview". Please do better than what looks like part of a character sheet. We want a glimpse of the rules and how they are presented.

I think it might be because I added a character sheet to the download files for this, and the previews were looking at that. I have enabled the quick preview again, but the full size preview is still showing the 2nd page of the character sheet. Hopefully that will revert to the proper preview shortly.

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.
