Axes and Anvils Quickstart Rules

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $2.00

Axes and Anvils is all about dwarves! Here is a quickstart with everything you need to make characters and start playing.

The introductory adventure provides a dwarven road through the mountains. No matter what kind of characters the players make, you can send them home in the first adventure, choosing a starting point on the road based on how much time you have to play. Dangerous foes and breathtaking backgrounds will make a great first impression!

Make characters together by printing out cards with traits so the players can swap skills and combat roles as they customize their dwarves. United by loyalty to the clan, the dwarves are ready to set off on adventure in this rules-light and intuitive game that is fun for all ages.

I guess it doesn't much matter - if you're getting print you're almost certainly getting a full rulebook instead of this - but still one thing I find a little odd is that physical copies are only sold as full color premium paperbacks - though the only color in the whole book is the front cover. I'm guessing it's a print quality thing, or something?

It is a format issue. I wanted saddle stitch for a short book, and in order to get it 8.5 x 11 the color option was the only one for that size. The quick start is printer friendly as I anticipate people would get the .pdf and print the parts they would need for the table, cutting out the cards and handing out the references. Thanks for asking!

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.
