Restless Hordes

Suggested Price $12.00

Restless Hordes is a scale and model agnostic fantasy mass battle game.  It is designed to be played in about an hour with fully customizable forces from your favorite fantasy setting.  The rules can accommodate infantry, cavalry, monsters, and wizards.  Players choose generic units and customize them using a Fantasy traits list.  Most weapons and equipment is abstracted into simple to use Fantasy Traits for the units.     

The mechanics are straight forward, streamlined, and easy to learn.  Restless Hordes uses a d6 vs. a target number to resolve combat, actions, morale, and other results.  In addition, it uses a Command Point system for resource management to unlock special rules and benefits for your troops at the key point of battle.   

Victory in Restless Hordes focuses on completing mission objectives.  These are randomly generated prior to the game and come complete with twists and turns to make every gaming experience unique.  It also includes a campaign system to link your games together into a narrative to build and maintain your armies.

None. Re-branded to avoid confusion with other game systems.

Great question. Solo-Play is an area I want to explore closer.

The only game I offer that is solo-play is on my blog; it is called Combat! Starring Vic Morrow and is a WWI skirmish but basing it on the famous TV show.

It is on the right hand side of my blog:

As a bonus, it is completely free!

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.
