Restless Swords

Suggested Price $8.00

Restless Swords is a scale and model agnostic fantasy model vs. model skirmish game.  It is designed to be played in about an hour with fully customizable forces from your favorite Fantasy universe.  The rules can accommodate infantry, cavalry, and monsters.  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 Swords uses a d6 dice pool vs. a target number to resolve most actions and mechanics.  Failure to activate moves play between players.  The game moves quickly and rapidly.  If you are familiar with Restless Sun or Restless Hordes you will have a core understanding of how these rules function.     

Victory in Restless Swords 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.  In addition, the rules have campaign rules for linking game results together into a larger campaign.  

Restless Swords is ideal for experienced gamers and new players getting their feet wet.  Speed and ease of play were the priorities in the design process without sacrificing decision making.  In Restless Swords models do not always perform exactly as intended so the "Friction of War" will force players to react accordingly. 

Enjoy your Fantasy adventures with Restless Swords!

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.
