The Chronicles of Ramlar Player's Guide


The Player’s Guide for the Chronicles of Ramlar Revised Edition fantasy role-playing game presents the expanded A/B System (“Armor/Body”), usable with any game world. The game engine features:

  • Critically acclaimed Demeanor/Theme system that reinforces and rewards character goals; character advancement is not hand-waved but through roleplaying
  • Incentives and bonuses for building a solid character concept, so the effort won’t go unrewarded
  • Innovative Momentum mechanic to encourage teamwork and swing the tides of battle
  • Freeform Expertise to express a character’s unique qualities and skills however you like; perform “stunts” to dramatically stretch the limits of your expertise
  • Improvisational Magic so you never have to cast any spell the same way twice
  • Resource Level that eliminates bean-counting
  • Imagine and create your own devastating combat maneuvers, not from someone else’s pre-defined menu
  • Customize armor, weapons, and virtually any provision on the fly
  • Streamlined combat; “tactic” is a product of dramatic narratives rather than hardcore number-crunching
  • Intuitive percentile resolution to support thrilling heroics; the importance of your action to the story will actually determine the difficulty modifier
  • Three styles of play: Heroic, Adventurous, and Mortal to tailor the rules to fit your campaign

The Player’s Guide is a toolbox for players to create both dynamic characters and stories, although you can use it for straightforward dungeon crawls just as easily. Is it a “fantasy heartbreaker”? We don’t think so, as evident by the great emphasis on roleplaying, but we invite you to judge it for yourself. We do believe, like many players and reviewers alike have discovered, you will find the game system a versatile, affordable (at $20), and exciting alternative to the traditional fantasy fare.

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.
