"It's an impressive amount of work and the approach seems good. I like it... It reminds me a little of our original idea of what the Rules Compendium was supposed to be" (Monte Cook, designer 3rd Edition, used with permission).

"Put your game to the SORD" (Shane O'Conner, staff reviewer)

PLAYERS and GMs...

Are you tired of...

  • Players searching through books at the height of your encounter, just to Demoralize an enemy.
  • Determining the AC mods of a character Fighting Defensively?
  • Figuring out the Armor Check Penalty of a Heavily Encumbered Chainmail-wearing elf trying to jump across a 10-foot chasm?
  • Searching for all the details of one rule across four or five pages spread all over the place  in your handbook..
  • Spending 45 minutes running a 4 round combat encounter.

Then SORD  is for you!
Whether you are a player or gamemaster, SORD puts the rules in their place - Literally!

All the attack types are found on a single page, from Attacks of Opportunity to Coup de Grace. SRD_001_SORD_Page_09.jpgSRD_001_SORD_Page_32.jpg
Need a Banded Mail's Armor Check penalty because your hero is climbing a rope? It's on the armor class page with all the other important Armor Class modifiers. SRD_001_SORD_Page_08.jpgSRD_001_SORD_Page_07.jpg

And so much more! Skills, Special Attacks, Damage, Weapons... it's in SORD.

Did you notice all the examples mention a Single PAGE!? That's right, SORD has a 1-page design. For each major component, AC, Attacks, Damage, you name it, the rules are contained on a single page!

This is an amazingly useful product. Having the vast majority of the more commonly referenced rules, each on a one sheet easy to find, view and use page... Amazing. I wish our group had found this product the first time we were playing 3. [...]

OK, so back when 3.5 first hit, someone put out a little 4-page PDF that circulated for free that condensed most of the more important charts into little cheat-sheets. And my group has used that ever since. SORD takes that concept and expands an [...]

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.
