Welcome to the fall of civilzation. In 476 the greatest empire the world has ever known lies in ruins. Through the rubble stride barbarians, conquerors who will remake the world of Europe in their own image through blood and fire and iron.

Welcome to the Dark Ages.

Legends of the Dark Ages brings the world of Europe from the fall of Rome to the death of Charlemagne to your favorite role playing game. Using mechanics introduced in RPGObjects' Ennie nominated Legends of Excalibur and further popularized in Legends of the Samurai, Legends of the Dark Ages brings this grim era to life.

  • 5 bloodlines of humanity: Slave, Serf, Barbarian, Lesser Nobility and Royalty.
  • 12 new core classes: Charlatan, Hermit, Marauder, Mercenary, Monk, Noble, Nomad, Priest, Seer, Skald, Soldier, Thief.
  • New weapons and armor detailing the wrought iron weapons in use during the dark ages, as well as the monetary system of the times. The equipment section also features the two exotic materials used in the dark ages, meteoric iron and Damascus steel.
  • A complete history of the age from 476 to 814.

Great game using d20 and set in a realistic Europe after the Fall of the Roman Empire. Plenty of classes and feats to keep players happy. Great background material and maps and the book is also very nicely laid out. If you are looking for gritty, no ma [...]

(I wrote a long detailed review, but the site timed me out I lost it, so ...) Good: several alternate character classes suited for a humans-only, low-magic setting. Good: 14-page summary of the history of Europe from the fall of Rome unti [...]

Original electronic
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.
