MicroTactix Games' Dirt Cheep Keeps? lets you build realistic full color stonework walls, gates, towers, and keeps of any size in inexpensive cardstock -- but just walls may not be enough! Defenders need a garrison to hold those walls safe, and a place for that garrison to sleep, arm themselves, and prepare for a siege! Now, you'll be ready with the new Dirt Cheep Keeps Accessory Pack!

The Accessory Pack comes with a complete garrison of full-color cardstock figures of troops and officers by fantasy artist Dominic Hamer -- enough to make any enemy think twice about trying to take your castle. After all, you can print as many as you want! You get archers, gate guards, crossbowmen, halberdiers, commanders and more. And, since you have to have somewhere to put those troops, the set also comes with tents, a barracks, an officers building, and a stable -- plus an assortment of other accessories. The buildings by cardstock construction guru Gary M. Williams are styled to match the Dirt Cheep Keeps Basic Set of walls and towers, but can also be used alone for any sort of medieval-style military camp.

Both the Dirt Cheep Keeps Basic Set and the new Accessory Pack are composed of easy-to-construct basic segments in downloadable PDF format that can be printed and put together in a nearly-infinite number of ways. Build anything from a small city gate to a massive castle courtyard with the inexpensive Dirt Cheep Keeps Basic Set for only $8.00 US, and use the Accessory Pack to enhance that with everything you need to fill your keeps with defenders and their support structures for only $5.00 US.

Use Dirt Cheep Keeps with any miniature figures in the 25 -30mm range. Combine with the Vyllage-on-the-Cheep? Castle Ruins, Ancient Ruins, and other building sets for even more possibilities -- it's all designed to work together! Dirt Cheep Keeps can enhance your miniatures games or roleplaying sessions without burning up your gaming budget. They're easy and versatile and beautiful -- and Dirt Cheep!

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.
