Swashbuckler PBM/PBEM fast play roleplaying game

Watermarked PDF

The Glory of Kings PBM/PBEM is very involved and can be an expensive game in which to participate, both in terms of time and money. For God, King & Country was introduced many years ago as a roleplaying variant to allow players to take part as a single character rather than trying to run an entire nation or pirate brotherhood. It ran for a few years reasonably successfully but was then brought to an end. This brand new game, Swashbuckler, has the same basic premise. What then is that premise, I hear you cry?

It's this: Swashbuckler runs within the game world of The Glory of Kings. That means the nations and larger organisations are run by the players of The Glory of Kings, while Swashbuckler players take part as a single character or person, someone further down the social scale with less power but still with a desire to make their mark in the world. The result is that Swashbuckler players can take part but their turns are cheaper, and also faster for them to deal with. So, Swashbuckler is designed to be quick to play and cheaper on your wallet - if you want more, then that’s what The Glory of Kings is for!

This gives the games a unique layer. For example, if you want a commission as an officer in a royal regiment, you will have to write a letter to the king to stand a chance of getting such a lofty appointment. And the king will be another player with different objectives since he is playing in The Glory of Kings in the same world!

Also you'll get caught up in the actions of The Glory of Kings players. For example, if one is committing piracy a ship you are sailing on may be captured, or what if you are staying in a town that comes under siege? The great thing is lots of different people in real life are impacting what happens to your character, the situations he or she finds himself in; it isn't all just down to the whim of the referee!

Please note that these rules are for a play by mail / play by email game run by AGEMA. Swashbuckler game turns cost £6 each, with one turn per month. However you can purchase the rules without being under any obligation to take part.

File Size:

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.
