Adventurers spend a lot of their time delving tombs, hunting monsters, and righting wrongs. In a vacuum these are good things, but campaigns don't often exist in a void. Those tombs, monsters, and wrongs are located somewhere, and most somewheres are under the control of someone. 

Rooting out a spy ring isn't likely to gain you many favors from House Rell if its shadowy leader is the house matron. On the other hand, if that spy ring is operating out of Count Beaumont's holdings, he'll likely reward the adventurers. It's possible he'll turn to them in the future if he requires quick blades and quicker wits. Even campaigns that rarely stray from the dungeon need their downtime to take place somewhere, and the material herein can give that location more heft and depth. 

How Do I Use This Book?

This book sketches out ten noble houses for your campaigns. Each house is laid out on one page; the top half contains the house name, its motto, a representation of their heraldic device as it would appear on a shield, and an information block detailing important personages, numbers of troops, and vassal houses. The lower portion provides enough detail about the interesting characters of the house to get the GM's imagination going, but leaves plenty of room for a GM to add their own details.

The simple layout of the pages makes them easy to print with enough room for a GM to write notes in the margins. 

(Please note: a 5e version with 5 stat blocks is also available)

Format
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.
