The Elder Scrolls Call To Arms Core Rulebook


Welcome to Tamriel – a realm of adventure and wonder. Where danger lies around every corner and where fame and fortune await the bold. It is a realm you can enter today, if you have the courage to answer the Call to Arms! 

The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms is a tabletop wargame set against the epic, sprawling backdrop of Tamriel. From the teeming cities of Cyrodiil to the towering mountains of Skyrim, across the ash-plains of Morrowind, and through the steaming swamps of Black Marsh, you must lead your Party of bold warriors on the path to glory. In this game, you must select a mighty champion to lead your Party, surrounding them with heroes and staunch followers. Players can take on quests, unearth magical artifacts, and fight roaming monsters as they do battle against their opponent, using a combination of strength, stealth and magic to win the day. Call to Arms is a simple game to learn, but a challenge to master; your Party can be assembled in an almost endless variety of ways, each unlocking new tactics and abilities with which to test your skill as a commander and challenge your enemies.

Whether exploring trap-filled dungeons, or battling in some windswept wilderness, Tamriel is yours to explore – or exploit – as you see fit, building your forces to take on all comers. This rich setting gives players the opportunity for a vast array of different game types and play styles, as well as collecting and modeling highly detailed, characterful miniatures from The Elder Scrolls universe.

I thought this was going to be a medieval version of Fallout3 or Dishonored TTRPG rules. After checking the rulebook is closer to a skirmish miniature game (Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone is a fair comparison), which is odd to find here.

Any idea when the main rulebook revision will be out, along with the chapter 3 cardpack, chapter 2 campaign book? This was announced almost two years ago.

I thought DriveThruRPG was for RPGs not miniature wargames.

There's a lot of games that cross the divide between RPG and miniatures now :-)

So a miniature game with delusions of an RPG.

Or more accurately it appears to be a cross between Mordheim (a skirmish level war game) and WFRP 3rd ed (a poor mix of a board game and an RPG). Blech.

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.
