For the Glory of Camelot

Britain is in ruins as lords and chieftains fight for supremacy. From this chaos will rise Arthur and a golden age of chivalry and wonder - and a dark time of betrayal and bloodshed. Take the role of a knight at court and make a name for yourself. Can you save Camelot? Will you make your own legend?

An Epic Roleplaying Game in King Arthur's Britain

* A new edition of the classic roleplaying game, undertaken by Hall of Fame game designer Greg Stafford.

* A complete roleplaying game of Arthurian adventure and glory - players portray knights who grow in power and reputation. Play sessions occur between winter seasons of character "downtime" meaning a campaign can span the entirety of the Arthurian era.

* Provides details on the five distinct periods within the Arthurian era - from before Arthur's birth to the fall of Camelot - allowing for many different campaigns and true epics. Players will tell the stories of three generations of characters - assuming their knights survive the brutal realities of feudal life.

* Maintains the much-loved game mechanic, with its emphasis on passion traits and detailed life events.

This is one of the most outstanding roleplaying games I've ever played. The details on the setting are plentiful, giving you a good feeling for 5th-6th century England. There are several maps on both county and country based scale with many plac [...]

An excellent game that elegantly captures the tone and feel of the Arthurian myths. The 5th edition is designer Greg Stafford's masterpiece: the tone of the text is consistent throughout, and Stafford's deep grasp and love of the Arthurian cycle [...]

La mise en page est curieuse, avec un décalage du texte, mais je pense que c'est pour permettre de faire des trous pour les pages. :) [...]

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.
