Demesnes & Domination

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Selected Option:

Simplify Domain gameplay! Expand the scope of your preferred OSR game by making Strongholds mean something! Don't be burdened by new mechanics! Streamline time at the table with simple and familiar rules used in new ways! Grow your domain, engage in diplomacy, and go to war all without having to learn new systems!

Demesnes & Domination is a rules supplement designed to compliment OSR games by allowing players and referees to introduce high level campaign concepts without feeling overwhelmed. Domain rules are managed by the Demesne Turn which represents one month in game where the action at the table zooms out and allow players to choose what to invest their treasure in, engage in Domain Encounters, and make meaningful choices to maintain a settlement's morale before zooming back in to the boots-on-the-ground adventuring the party already does. All of this is done using familiar mechanics that players and referee's already use at their table for easy and quick integration.

To aid with the Demesne Turn procedure, the referee is given a variety of tools to help them create interactive situations and help them generate meaningful events for players to engage with. Invest in expanding your settlements and the people that populate them to gain passive treasure from the growing population! Engage in diplomacy to scheme and plot, go to war and have both tactical mass combat or quickly calculated auto-resolutions if desired! Create an endless sandbox of medieval fantasy for players to explore! 

Demesnes & Domination also includes additional content to expand and enhance ongoing campaigns and provide referees with an expanding toolkit for creating more diverse and interactive game! Additional sections include -

  • Advanced Adventuring: Randomly generate settlements and explore them! Incorporate wilderness survival to add tension to your hexcrawl! Reinforce your camp against raiders, monsters, and worse!

  • Wicked Wizardry: enhance your campaign's magic option to allow for more interaction with magic crafting and development. Dabble with Alchemy and streamline magic crafting that works in conjunction with the demesne turn. Research demons and bond them to be familiars! Generate unique denizens from hell, angels, patron Saints, fairies, Eldritch beings, and more!

  • Simple Psionics: incorporate some high strangeness into your milieu with streamlined and easy to use psionics inspired from classic game sources.

  • Compelling Classes: expand your stock of character options by playing as an Alchemist, Inquisitor, Hexer, Swashbuckler, Psionics-User, and more!

  • Tying it all together is miscellaneous encounter tables and looting tables to upgrade your encounters, treasure, and searching bodies and rooms!

Demesnes & Domination is your go-to source for essential Companion rules for your preferred Old-School role playing game!

I've enjoyed the pdf thoroughly, but unlike most other game books, I cannot print selected pages without a password.
Can you provide one, or do I need to buy a special pdf?
Thanks but I don't want to buy a full hard copy.

Thanks, it works for me now. FWIW I use Mac pdf readers.
I'm Curious: what were the old and new formats might have caused this?

DTRPG offers certain content locks by default as does Adobe so I just had to fix those! I work on PC so I'm not sure how well these things transfer to a Mac PDF reader but either way, I'm glad it worked out!

Just some very minor errata and grammatical fixes! The only errata chance was removing the damage multiplier in mass combat. A full list of all errata changes since release in July 2023 is available here!: https://arcanesword.blogspot.com/2023/10/demesnes-domination-errata.html

Just checked message settings and everything looks good. Still never received it. Must be something I'm doing wrong, but I can't figure it out. Is there any other way to send it?

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.
