The Players’ Guide to Dunromin – nearly 300 pages of quality FRPG City Guide:

Dunromin is the capital of the Land of the Young and (probably) the greatest city on the World of Barnaynia.  About its labyrinthine streets loiter innumerable citizens all looking to make a fast coin or two from naïve adventurers passing through.  Save yourself that discomfort with this marvellous guide to all the significant organisations, buildings and people in the city, including a history of all the major events in the land over the past 600 years.

Dunromin is a fantasy city like no other!  Conceived and designed as a setting for low- to mid-level fantasy role-playing games (up to about 18th level depending on your style), it features all the resources you need to have a consistent, detailed yet flexible and innovative setting.  The Wonderful City of Dunromin can be used for city-based adventures; as a base to explore the Land of the Young and the surrounding wilderness; to get embroiled in wider campaigns; or just to use as a safe base for your characters to rest up, train and relax.

What size are the hardcover books? Are they A5 like the other OSE books

Hi Jeremy, sorry for the slow response. The books are based around A4, although the hardbacks are slightly larger than the softback. Not the A5 of the core OSE books.

This is good stuff I just wanted to point out a very unimportant typo.

There was a misspelling of Christianity on page 12. Not a deal at all but it just sticks out to me when I read through that page.

Anyhow looking forward to going through the rest of the catalogue and future releases.

Hi Ajay,
Thanks for pointing this out. We're not sure how it made it through all the proof-reading we did but thank-you for bringing it to our attention!

I can't give this a rating/review, I guess since I am a "competitor", but this is an utterly fascinating book

Glad you like it! I hope there's some stuff in there you can use too. Even more in the DM's Guide to Dunromin; loads of interesting NPCs and plot hooks.

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.
