Hello, after reading the mass combat chapter, I must say I don't understand how the military units are build. FOr example an unit of 100 militians have 100 HD and cause 100d6 of damage?

I know this comment comes three years after your question, but putting this here for anyone else asking this.

It's statted out for Labyrinth Lord, but there are plenty of resources online for converting older statblocks to 5th edition. All of Kevin Crawford's books are excellent resources for anyone looking to run any RPG and I cannot recommend them enough.

Some issues I noticed

A) There aren't any units with the guardsman trait, except the Red Jade Templars which are not a unit PC's can be expected to have access to.

B) Unit statblocks aren't explained. I have no idea what SV stands for (seems to be a letter/number combination-Is it the type and level of building you need to access them?)

a) I noticed this too. PCs can gain the "vigilant watchman" ability when gaining Champion levels, which seems to be the only way (RAW) to gain guardsmen. I suspect this is intended to encourage players to deal with military/disorder obstacles personally (e.g. take down a thieves' guild, hunt monsters, and so on). But it would be straightforward to add a new unit type to the support unit list that has the guardsman trait (e.g. cost 2M 0W 0S, no attacks, guardsman trait) - I don't imagine this would break the game at all.

b) The statblocks refer, I believe, to the Labyrinth Lord system, which is modelled on OD&D. There are guides out there for adapting OD&D to newer versions, and with a bit of thought I'm sure it would be straightforward to convert these units to non-D&D systems.

For guardsman trait, whether an oversight or not with normal units not having it, this is not necessary for overcoming a military obstacle, it just provides a bonus (which fits in with the mythos of the Red Jade Templars).

SV is Save. So MU5 is save as a magic user level 5 and F2 is fighter level 2 using the Labyrinth Lord rules.

Hi, i will start a game using "An Echo Resounding" in my sandbox game where my players are participants of a war effort to recolonize a continent that the hobgoblins won a war and slaved/killed the humans and elves who lived there. Since i never used "An Echo..." and i have some doubts about the system i came here to ask:
1- When i build a building asset as Palisade, are there any upkeep?
2- Some building assets have -1 value in Wealth or Social, what does it mean?
3- The values in Military, Wealth and Social on build assets is to be added to the Military, Wealth and Social of the domain or is it just used to set the difficult of "Establishing an Asset" action?

Thank you for your attention guys!
ps: Sorry for my english, it isn't my mother language.

1. As far as I can tell, many assets give you income (in Military, Wealth, or Social points) rather than costing upkeep. So the palisade adds 2M to your domain totals.

2. Negative values in M/W/S are upkeep costs. Some assets add to your domain totals in one value, but subtract from another (e.g. walls add 4M to your total but subtract 1W).

3. The values are both used to establish the difficulty of the "establish an asset" action, and added to your domain total.

All of the above are just my interpretation of the rules - I didn't make this. It seems to work out well; the domains I've built that hold one town and maybe a resource end up with enough points to support a small army, allowing them to take meaningful actions and defend their base.

My one criticism of this product is that the rules are not that clearly explained - it could do with a one-page summary of everything.

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.
