 The Three Plains Main Rulebook

MM ArmyThe dark old world of 'Many', so called because of its many names given to it by each race that inhabits it, is always at WAR! It is a world filled with marauding hordes of Orcs, imperial Elves, hardy Dwarves and mere Men, who are constantly warring against each other.

Some will use their might to crush their foes, while some will use their cunning and others will wield devastating magic or use war machines to destroy all who stand against them on the battlefield. This is the game of Three Plains...

Three Plains the Game

Three Plains is a stunning print and play fantasy 15mm wargame, and its Free too! Where two or more players fight it out, turn after turn in an epic pitched battle of wits, strength and little bit of luck, to see who will leave the field of battle the greater general.

As the commander of your army, you take charge of all elements of your army; from recruiting who you will lead, deployment, armaments, tactics and even magic. All is under your control in the game of Three Plains. 


Inside the Three Plains Rulebook V.3.


Epic SiegeThe Three Plains Rulebook is the most important book of the Three Plains series, because it contains all the general rules for the game.

The main rulebook has over 60 pages of good solid rules. The other 100 pages are crammed with Magic Items, Spells, extra Battle Scenarios of magic and the brand spanking new siege game. In fact, it's so new, it's still in development, but it's in there!

The general rules covers all you will need to know to play a proper pitched battle. From moving skirmishers, marching units, monster reaction charts, archers shooting mass volleys of arrows, it's all in there and waiting for you to explore.

The rules allow for quick small 500 points games, which could last for about an hour. Or you could choose to fight out an epic battle, which would span across an entire tabletop and take up an afternoon to play. It's up to you, there is no limit on the size of game you want to play with Three Plains.

There's plenty of slaughter in Three Plains, but mindless violence will rarely win the day. It is a cool head and a sound plan which will win the battle for you. Even the savage mind of an Orc needs to have a rough idea of what they are doing on the big day. So, Three Plains is truly about tactics, planning, and just like any other dice driven game, there's a bit of luck mixed in there too.

Grand GuardBehind the scenes, Three Plains has an advanced gaming system, which can easily deal with standard movement, shooting, combat and even magic. Though there is much more to this system than that. The 'Breaking System' or the Battle Stress Phase, as it is known in Three Plains is both easy to use and very good at its job at working out who stays to fight and who will flee the field of battle.

Also, Three Plains may be a fantasy game, but its core rules are grounded in realism. This has led it to develop some very unique rules of its own, such as Exhaustion, March Overs, Pieces moving through others and many more, which you just don't see in other fantasy wargames.

Product Information
File Size:
25.47 MB
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.
