Fantasy Baronial Lifestyles

Written as a simulation of castle life, the materials herein are suitable for any campaign of High fantasy.

For the most part, castles in fantasy adventures take the antipodal roles of both sanctuary and dungeon. They exist as set pieces, the place where the players receive their task, the contract mission of the adventure.

Then on the other end, castles become the evil fortress, which the band of players must infiltrate. Those are both fine, but there is so much more possibility in between. As a focal point, each Fantasy Castle deserves more than to be treated as mere seat of the Fairy Queen’s Court and Count Vlad’s Lair. Consider a world littered far and wide by garrison structures, and each one has a story.

Free-style play suggests an alternative to pictures without meaning, talk without gaming mechanics. Not all player Refs are cartographers nor social scientists, and these events generate themselves.

Here’s a nice generation system for finding out what greets the players at each days’ end. Whether the party of players gets involved or not is entirely up to them.

As the players become powerful and create their own sanctuaries, or take prized locations from the original owners, there should be an easy way to keep tabs of the backstabbing and kingmaking, which will occur as the character is out “being a player character” who bores of sitting at home counting his four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie. Where there is a need, there is a quick and dirty system to support.

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.
