Ancient Warriors: Sons of Sparta


The Most Famous Warriors...of All Time

            Even though they lived thousands of years ago, we've all heard of the legendary Spartans. Maybe you saw them in a movie, or on television, or read about them in a book, or just heard about them in history class, but chances are, you have a pretty good idea what and who the Spartans were.

            There's a reason why Spartans are so famous that they are remembered, even now, as paragons of war. Ancient Warriors: Sons of Sparta aims to allow you to bring a little piece of that infamous city-state and its warrior culture into your game. It might be as simple as an alternate class feature or two, or even just a Spartan trait, or it might mean rolling up a hoplite, a new base class introduced in this book which specializes in spear-and-shield combat and allows your character to make the most of shield wall tactics. The book even contains a short history section, giving background on Spartan culture and ideas for what Sparta might look like if the ancient world had had more of the elements of a standard fantasy game.

            From the makers of Ancient Warriors: Way of the Ninja, and A Necromancer's Grimoire: Marchen der Daemonwulf, Ancient Warriors: Sons of Sparta will leave you in no doubt: This is Sparta.

Nicely written. If I want to put something small that should be my choice. [...]

Admittedly I skipped through most of the write-up about the spartan past, but that doesn't mean I didn't read it. Truthfully I would have preferred that the meat of it was AFTER the class, but that's mostly hearsay. I liked reading about the hop [...]

I downloaded this PDF on suggestion from the publisher. Honestly, I skipped the 'story' bit at the beginning. I just didn't find it interesting. I found the Introduction to Spartan society to be decently written, but more importantly, to the poi [...]

Spartans have been in vogue around the game table ever since a certain movie gave us tailor-made gamer quotes like “Tonight we dine in Hell!” and “Spartans! Prepare for glory!” The archetypal real-world warrior culture, the warriors of Sparta [...]

I have received a copy of this product as a free download and reviewed it at the publisher's suggestion. I'd like to see a hoplite class done well, as I've mentioned in regard to another attempt. I'm curious how class features for the barbarian, [...]

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.
