Village Book II (1979)

Watermarked PDF

A 64-page booklet containing 50 pages of maps of various small settlements, villages, and hamlets, intended to fill the needs of any active campaign Judge to populate a large area for his fantasy role-players. The book includes nine pages of tables on the generation of various heraldry and coats of arms. The maps are printed on light gray hex fields to facilitate modifications by the Judge; colored felt-tipped pens can be used to great advantage to code buildings and other terrain features. This is a Judges Guild Campaign Hexagon Sub-System, created and approved for use with D&D.

JG 0104

Note: These Judges Guild PDFs are scans of actual original classic print products produced 20 or more years ago. These are not recreations or reproductions. This is the real thing.

More of the same of what is found in Village Book I... 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 [...]

I found the maps well made and clear, even if a little too generic probably for my need. They're perfect, for my direct experience, for military simulation and battle tracking. On the roleplay part, i tend to prefer more "scenic" maps that ca [...]

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. [...]

This is just a book filled with small villages mapped on the JG hex grid. It has really limited use, but what do you want for 2.25? [...]

Great little book, well worth the $1.99 price tag. Even $3.00 would have been ok. Neat little villages, all sorts, from river and shore to plains and forested. Yes there simple but thats is the beauty of them. Plus the added data on heraldry isn't bad [...]

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.
