(Playouts) Small Keep

Playouts are layouts to be printed and used at the game table during play. In this PDF, you will find a small keep. It is four stories high with a sub-level that includes storage space and cells for prisoners or beasts. Consider the staircases somewhat fudged for use with a five-foot equals one inch grid. One could claim this keep has a garrison from one dozen to three dozen guards, if one considers the beds as bunk beds and assumes that those on duty give up their beds to those who are not. The artillery is somewhat downsized from the great siege machines and meant to be akin to spear-throwers. The final two pages include a blank background and Playouts bits in case you wish to add to the keep, change a few things around, or build something of your own in the same style. This small keep is perfect as a roadside toll collector, a starter-stronghold for up and coming PCs or even as a wizards tower of sorts. A GM could also claim it has long since been abandoned by civilized folks and now must be scourged of evil creatures.

Small, 6 level fort that is adaptable. Took a while to figure out all the images as there are many objects in each room and no key. Includes sheet of many items and blank floor tiles to create your own room/floor. [...]

Though this product doesn't have the versatility it makes up for quality. Only thing I've found a bit confusing was that the only way to reach the top of the keep was through a secret passage behind the masters bed. Now why the only way to man the ball [...]

While the maps are well-drawn, I was disappointed in this product. It literally is 6 rather simple maps. There is no key (I assume the red dots are torches, but don't know what the curved things are in some corners, or the grey boxs with dots in them [...]

I like the versatility that this playout gives me, keeping elements simple yet easy to customize. I'll be using this a lot in my own campaigns. [...]

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.
