Great Hall Burning

Watermarked PDF


Great Hall Burning allows you to adventure during the Viking Age, the period from the late 8th century to the mid-11th century. If you succeed in battle and in your raids, you can raise your Social Standing and gather more men. As your Fame grows you rise in rank until someday, you are King. Or you could be… 

The journey is long, with many twists and turns, but if you keep your eye on the prize, it is attainable. But before you can be King, you’ll have to start at the bottom. Not the very bottom, but close to it. 


Inside you’ll find:

·  Rules for fighting small Raids to large Stand Up Battles.

·  Four Army Lists covering the people of the Viking Age.

·  Rules for combat that work just as well for small skirmishes or big battles on the land and sea.

·  A complete, but easy to track campaign system to give meaning to your games.

·  A variety of pre-generated games.

·  A complete Viking Settlement with different characters that allow you the option to play a little RPG-Lite.

·  A low bookkeeping system to track how well you are doing.

·  Retirement rules to determine how well or badly you ended up after your career has ended.

·  All this and much more. 
Great Hall Burning can be played solo, same side with everyone against the game, or head to head against your friends. Play with any figures you already have in any scale, metal, plastic or paper. Play with counters or pen and paper. Play it as a Campaign where all your battles are linked together or as a one-off game. Bottom line; just play it…you’ll be glad you did!

Collect your crew; grab a boat and catch the wind. Your time has come, it’s time to see the …

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.
