Adventures Great and Glorious

Selected Option:

What if there was something for high level characters to do
other than kill bigger monsters? Now there is.
A continuation of the possibilities set forth in ADVENTURES DARK AND DEEP™
and other fantasy role-playing games, ADVENTURES GREAT AND
GLORIOUS™ lets you take your game to the next level, letting your players
become lords of their own territories, courtiers at the royal court, scions of
their own families, and even creators of their own demiplanes of existence.
Fully compatible with most old-school role-playing games, this book includes
sections on:
• Clearing territory and attracting followers and settlers in the wilderness
• Becoming functionaries and courtiers and sharing in the intrigues of a
royal court
• Governing territories, collecting taxes, creating mines, and dealing with
the unexpected events of rulership
• The Long Game, with campaign turns, events, and growing families
• Mass combat, with simple rules that let the players take center stage at
the critical moment and help decide the outcome of the battle
• New secondary skills, treasure, magic items, and spells

Please note this is a rules supplement, and is designed to be used with other rule systems. It is not a complete game unto itself. While it is written with the Adventures Dark and Deep game in particular, the references have equivalents in most other popular OSR games, with the exception of the new character classes in Adventures Dark and Deep. Unfortunately, due to limitations of the OGL regarding indications of compatibility, we cannot provide precise cross-references for other games.

Are any/all of the contents of Adventures Great and Glorious included in the Book of Lost Lore and/or Book of Lost Beast? I already have both of the latter.

Other than the generalship secondary skill (which is also included here, but has been greatly expanded due to the nature of the material dealing with armies and such), there's no overlap. The material in this book extends and expands on what's in the Book of Lost Lore.

I think I got lost in the shuffle here. I found my PDF link on rpgdrivethrough for the PDF but I don't see the hardcopy at cost link anywhere. I searched my orders and I've not gotten a hardcopy but I do have the Pdf...

I’m disappointed that there wasn’t a clear notice that you need ADVENTURES DARK AND DEEP GAME MASTERS TOOLKIT and several other books in the line to use this book. Even basic things like pricing out a keep is dependent on those other books.

The description has been updated to hopefully make the situation clearer. You don't necessarily need the ADD Game Masters Toolkit, but the OGL says we can't tell you where to look in other games for the equivalent information, because we can't indicate compatibility with other games. Hope that helps!

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.
