Villages, towns, castles and places for my adventurers to visit. Its really just maps with a couple of tables that you may find useful. No scale is given and that is okay. I'm a smart enough guy to figure out my own scale. The maps are versatile and va [...]

This is a fantastic system-free product: just maps of villages, and some small towns, a few of which even have castles! These can be used for any fantasy game system, allowing the GM to get on with the important stuff, like fleshing out the adventure [...]

Very interesting product. When I bought this I thought "Ah, I'll get some 50 village maps. They'll save me a lot of time as I don't need to spend time mapping such in a long time." but I was completely wrong there. There isn't any scal [...]

One of those classic products of Judges Guild. For the price, the product is well worth using for the busy GM. Although I own the original, having a printable one is an excellent way to integrate the product into an established 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.
