Realms Second Edition

Watermarked PDF

Realms is a huge and rich fantasy setting to adventure across, with rules for character generation, magic, combat,   the environment, innovative experience rules that really reward role playing, and a good range of monsters and challenges to allow the gamemaster to fine-tune adventures.

And now in its second edition Realms is even better, more in depth and rounded. The game mechanics have been completely overhauled and everything has gotten even more detailed and interesting. So if you're a mage who needs to make rent on your wizard's tower, or a minstrel who needs some new material to keep the crowds happy, it's time once more for some adventuring.
Realms also includes detailed information on buildings, culture and customs, cities, governments and what goes on in the underworld. There are some interesting new challenges, some beasts to challenge the most powerful characters, and some lower level creatures to be chopped down in the most gratifying way.  There are also details of the motivations of the realms, princes and fairy queens, including how they interact with each other, what they think of each other, and some history to show how some powers have risen at the expense of others. It all makes a rich backdrop for court intrigue, to delight players who require some thinking along with their action.
Realms has a realistic approach to sword combat and armor, and lots of other weapons too, without getting bogged down in too much detail. This leaves more space for fun stuff like magic, monsters and adventure, but if you choose the wrong equipment, or you just can't afford it, things can get tough. 
There are lots of examples of magic items, fearsome monsters, the effects of the environment, realistic city life, and the likelihood of finding shelter in the wilderness.  And at the center of the system is the character. Everything is built around them, to make the character, and the gaming experience as in depth, character centered and fun as possible.

It's time to see what's been going on in the Realms...

Original electronic
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.
