Arduin II (aka: Compleat Arduin books 1 & 2)

Watermarked PDF

The wait is over...

Here is Arduin, the renowned fantasy role-play system, totally revised and reorganized. This is both volumes of the "Compleat Arduin," it contains book 1 rules and book 2 resources. 

  1. Step-by-step character development, with three complete examples.
  2. A modular format, allowing use of part of the system with many other popular role-playing systems.
  3. More than two dozen fully-developed character classes.
  4. Twenty-two distinct character races.
  5. Comprehensive conventions for handling the development of split-class characters.
  6. New, simple and fair rules for awarding experience.
  7. Comprehensive rules for the use of magic.
  8. A complete description of the Arduin Battle Factor combat system, including all you need to conduct realistic melees.
  9. Over 125 melee and missile weapons, including random critical hit and fumble modifiers.
  10. Over 50 different kinds of armor.
  11. Rules for a variety of firearms, including pistols, rifles, automatic weapons, muzzle-loading cannon, modern artillery, and energy weaponry.
  12. A new, simpler system for sequencing combat.
  13. Price lists for most anything your character might want or need.

...and much, much more to include bonus materials such as as the errrata, Doomguards, Arduin Courier Service, Travel in Arduin, The Art of the Deal, Multiversal Trading Company, Highwaymen & Slaver Classes. 

This was the first real attempt to get all of the Arduin rules into a cohesive easy to use book. Put together by Mark Schynert to carry on the Arduin torch for David A. Hargrave and at the time Grimoire Games. A difficult task indeed.  This verison of Compleat Arduin is provided in the way it was presented originally in 1992, only the cover and title were changed.

Scanned image
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.
