Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, B&W Book

Mehliu: blood ‘n bone is an old school roleplaying game built on a decades-long tradition, mixing the classic Chainmail essence with the newest rules iteration of the world’s most famous RPG (in its 5th edition). The result of this alchemy is the D+D=2D system: using a pair of d6 on all rolls, everything is decided easily, quickly, and with a nice bell curve to boot.

But there’s more! After all, we have simple and lethal rules, allowing heroism and foolhardiness to be properly rewarded. As challenges wait for the intrepid adventurers, soon you’ll find them facing monsters in fast and tactical combats, ready to plunder treasures worth of kings.

So, if you wanna dungeon crawl, border exploration, village intrigue, and fight against dangerous monsters, you’ll want Mehliu: blood ‘n bone in your gaming table.

What will you find in this book? Read on!

  • Full character creation rules
  • Classes as Warriors, Clerics, Sorcerers, Thieves, Dwarves and Elves
  • A simple skill and talent system allowing you to emulate other character classes
  • Simple follower rules for those characters who want an entourage
  • Thematic spells you’ll cast in a non-Vancian way
  • Quick and lethal combat rules
  • A bestiary focused on the main creatures of the valley
  • Player and Game Master tips alike (presented in an easy-to-understand way)
  • Essential adventuring gear
  • A complete adventure for 1-4 players to get their feet wet
  • A small setting based on Mehliu valley

And remember: you’ll need only a pair of six-sided dice, pencil, eraser, a few blank sheets and your friends*!

*friends, like the other items on this list, not included to play, so you’ll need to provide your own.

I'm not allowed to post reviews because I'm a publisher (no affiliation to the author of this book), but I posted a review in my blog:

The book starts with a few pages introducing you to RPGs - good, but not especially necessary for most of us, I'd think - and then starts describing the area that gives the book its name [...]'ve got the "usual suspects" of fantasy creatures (elves, dwarves, trolls, etc.), but they are used in creative ways, with elves being the aggressors and trolls apparently being invaded twice over (although they resemble ordinary monsters int he bestiary).

This pattern will be followed in most of the book: usual concepts with small creative twists (for example, sorcerers replace magic-users, and clerics use Charisma instead of Wisdom).

Anyway, the next few pages describe this setting with just the right amount of detail for my tastes, answering all the relevant questions (where to find weapons and treasure, how to learn...See more

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.
