A game about allegiances, motorcycle jousting, and the wagers people dare with fate in search of glory.

D&D 5e presents a class - the Warlock - that exemplifies a cool concept done wrong by lack of rules support.

There are no mechanics associated with a D&D warlock's relation to their patron. No metagame consequence if the player fails to follow through on their character's obligations. Indeed, even in the fiction of the character creation there is not much explanation of what a warlock has to do at their end of their pact. Really, a warlock should carry as much fictional burden as does a paladin. A pact is simply a different word for an oath, and both the warlock and the paladin pledge fealty to an entity as payment for their powers.

That brings me to this game, Liege. The game runs on Jason Tocci's 24XX engine, but the key innovative mechanic is a Fealty die. It is a kind of usage die for supernatural power, attained by invoking the character's immortal liege. Even if the character acts to further the liege's interests, the invocation may displease the liege. There is always a risk of condemnation for presumptuous and excessive reliance on the liege's power. But with that power, impossible things can be accomplished!

The game's Gear list combines medieval and 20th century items; swords and shotguns, horses and motorcycles. The setting is implied to be a timeless mashup of motorcycle monks and contemplative bandits, all devoted to vigilante-style righting of wrongs they perceive. What those wrongs might be, and how to set them right - and whether the act of righting them will please or infuriate the characters' liege(s) - those are questions that one must play to find out the answers.

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.
