700 Lordly Houses


The Story

Great Noble HousesThere is the power of the throne, and then there is true power. The seven hundred Lordly Houses have long held the true power in this part of the world. This theme adds six major lordly houses and a host of lesser houses and their rulers, webs of alliances, intrigues, clashes, and politics to your game.

Your adventurers will learn the art of acquiring power, and will cast bitter rivals into ruin and disgrace. Inevitably, they will be pulled into alliance with one or more houses, making allies and enemies alike, and their actions may put them at the head of their own lordly house. But remember, the higher the house, the further the fall!

Social characters such as bards and rogues will shine, but 700 Lordly Houses is suitable for any type of character. There are opportunities for intrigue, as well as more straightforward adventures at the bequest of the lords.

The Structure

Written by Wolfgang Baur, the founder of Kobold Press, this adventure module is system-agnostic. You can use it with your game system of choice. You will need to create stats for the characters and monsters at an appropriate level for your players. 

There is a linear central plot line, experienced by visiting a variety of unique locations and running specific adventures.  The remaining points of interest and adventures can show up anywhere in your world you wish, and add to the narrative flavor and depth of this module. Also included are a list of rumors – some true, some not so true – that your NPCs can relate to the players.

The 61 page PDF contains 7 high quality adventure maps, and includes portraits of 40 important NPCs. 

All maps, portraits, and major images are also available as separate files for use in a Virtual Tabletop (VTT), or to otherwise share with your players.

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.
