The Vanquished Foe (Classic Reprint)


Precis Intermedia brings back this classic boardgame. Originally published in 1977 by Wee Warriors, The Vanquished Foe is an early example of dungeon-style games. This was an era when games were created without today's advanced software and print services, making indie publishers of the time truly special.

JOURNEY NOW into the hills of the vast mountain range on the island. Talk is that, once more, the bands of Mor Toc, leader of the Ten Orc Tribes, have been seen roaming the land. Once badly beaten by King Arman, they were thought to have fled the island. Not so! Once more, it seems their blood lust has drawn them into contact with the peoples of Baylor.

THE DWARVES sit silently, sharpening their great mattocks and swords. In the lower valleys, the Elves stroke their spear points across the wet stones. While all around make ready in a little-used hallway, there can be heard the faint scraping of iron against rock. And in that hallway... a wall begins to crumble.

This game pits Dwarves (or Elves) against Orcs in their lair. Both sides secretly place their units, engaging in combat when the time is right.

This piece of gaming history is a must for collectors, old school gamers, and those looking for a fast-playing dungeon-style game. With the original on the extremely rare list, this classic reprint of The Vanquished Foe has been remastered for a clean print, and is readily available at a low cost.

Requires a set of percentile dice and a six-sided die.

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.
