Reign: Enchiridion

Selected Option:

The REIGN Enchiridion contains the essential rules for Greg Stolze’s fantasy roleplaying game “REIGN: A Game of Lords and Leaders.”

REIGN expands the frontiers of fantasy gaming by elevating the action to an international stage. Monarchs, mercenaries and merchant princes gamble armies and fortunes to win nations in a rich and vibrant fantasy setting. REIGN’s simple but complete rules model the triumphs and disasters of societies as small as a village or as large as a realm-spanning religion. With REIGN, your characters can defend threatened nations, bring prosperity to desperate provinces, make laws and perpetuate justice… or, if you prefer, loot, conquer and pillage on a vast and awesome scale. 

Powered by a fantasy-optimized version of the One-Roll Engine (or ORE) popularized by Godlike, Wild Talents, and Monsters and Other Childish Things, REIGN can take your characters from beggars to emperors. The ORE resolves events in delicate detail without cumbersome layers of contingent rolls.

The group-resolution rules from REIGN are self-contained and modular. It’s a simple matter to stack them on top of any other RPG system. Want a concrete way to model what happens to the city when your superheroes destroy the Cult of Moloch Triumphant? Use REIGN to stat up the city and the cult. Ever wonder who’d win if two rival government conspiracies went head to head? REIGN lets you measure their weaknesses and strengths, then test them against one another. Fantasy kingdoms, cosmic empires and secretive cabals can all be easily managed and modeled with REIGN. 

The REIGN Enchiridion includes: 

·       The essential rules for REIGN, without the detailed setting-specific elements that are in the larger core book.<o:p></o:p>

·       Material from the first two years of online REIGN supplements, such as rules for building new spells and new schools of sorcery from scratch.<o:p></o:p>

·       Two new gamer-friendly tools, included by popular demand: “One-Roll Spells” and “One-Roll Monsters.”

The REIGN Enchiridion is a handy, indispensable reference for any REIGN game table.

Just want to point out to anyone interested in this title, that this is not the "full" core rule book; That book is not available on dtrpg but can be bought and downloaded in pdf format on other websites at the same price. Kind of annoying, as I paid extra for a physical copy as it's currently at a discount...

Are there any good resources, beyond Greg Stolze's website, for discussions on using Reign, especially for companies? I am looking to use Reign as the basis for a country vs. country role playing game.

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.
