ZIP File

In the world of Roma Imperious the Roman Empire has discovered, developed and uses magic. They are not the only ones though, the Chinese, called the Jade Empire, have refined the art of alchemy. The Skandians to the north have Odin, Thor and the other gods living amongst them. Over all of them the Kingdom of the Black Wizards, the Kingdom of Alkasas, is ruled by the gods in the northern bounds of Asia. Rome stands against the Alkasatians while expanding there borders north and east. More that a book about Rome, this is a book about the Roman Empire, their enemies and their allies.

Simply wonderful! A source book which provides a smooth combination of historical information with an arcane twist. The contents are easily transferable to alternate gaming rule systems and the Iridium System itself is easy to use and clearly defined. [...]

Roma Imperious is (obviously) Roman themed fantasy RPG. Roma has strong fantasy elements to it, so if your are looking for a strictly historical Roman RPG this game is not for you. The basic premis is that instead of the Roman Empire falling C [...]

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.
