New Knights of the All Mind

Watermarked PDF

The New Knights of the All Mind digest-sized booklet is the first in Direbane series intended to be playable with Advanced Labyrinth Lord™ and other OSR rule sets.

Our local San Francisco East Bay group gamed first edition of The World’s Most Popular Role-Playing Game for nearly 3 decades, from 1978 to 2005, and recently (in 2019) made a switch to the then-new Advanced Labyrinth Lord. Because Labyrinth Lord is at its root version B/X (even Advanced Edition), there are still a few nibs missing we needed from 1e. Hence this “New” Knights. We had to have extended strength above 19, thief’s reading languages, and certain magic items, but to form a whole booklet I delved into divine intervention, death and dismemberment, weapon to-hit adjustments by armor type, and even variable weapon speed a-la J. Eric Holmes (from whence our game began).

And there’s more! I didn’t imagine this so much as figure out what would be cool for Advanced Labyrinth Lord™ from our old game and put it in a supplement. So if you want to experience some of the more esoteric corners mainly from our origins of OSR, please check out this booklet. I hope it brings some joy and new perspective to your group’s game.

(This product is formatted to print 2-sided in Adobe Reader's "booklet" format, but for best presentation 2 extra files are included. One is a “cover” file, for printing in color on high quality photo paper as a cover to the booklet. The other file is the interior which may be printed in greyscale on regular paper.)

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.
