All the Treasures of the World: JEWELS


Impress the barmaid when you casually lay your hand on the bar and your massive gold ring catches the torchlight. Command respect from shopkeepers as your half-dozen silver armbands advertise your wealth. Gain an audience with the Baron when they notice your bronze medal of valor from the hand of the King himself. Everyone who's anyone wears jewels, from the mightiest ruler with his crown of nineteen rubies to a shaman with his amulets of bone; from to the roughest adventurer sporting his fortune in platinum rings and diamond buckles to the simplest goodwife who would never be seen in temple without her grandmother's earrings. Plain or expertly wrought, of polished stone or tin or electrum, tiny studs or massive chest-plates crusted with gems: all these and thousands more fabulous items await in ALL THE TREASURES OF THE WORLD: JEWELS.  

This companion to ALL THE TREASURES OF THE WORLD: GEMS provides exhaustive rules for random generation of jewels and determining the value a piece, including:

  • Over 50 types of jewels, from rings and necklaces to snoods, lockets, and spurs.
  • Five Decor Classes, from wood and leather through platinum and gold.
  • Alloys like electrum, white gold, brass, and bronze.
  • Eighteen construction styles and their effects on value.
  • Plating, foil, and studs in 10 different metals.
  • Abstract and representational patterns, from plain to artistic masterpieces.
  • More than 80 decorative motifs, from classic meanders to grinning skulls, plus variations.
  • Gems: Number, value, and arrangement, from cheap pips to dazzling arrays.
  • Detailed examples.

Go beyond the basics to a world of stylish, beautiful, and precious objects. Spice up your treasure rolls with JEWELS!

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.
