Hostile Ground

Watermarked PDF

Hostile Ground is a "cinematic" wargame that can be played solo or in cooperative mode. 

The ruleset is currently under development (by buying this set you will be able to download any possible updated version) and this beta version is focussed on contemporary warfare.

Unlike many other rules, Hostile Ground is designed to be adapted to the needs of the players, therefore, using the basic mechanics, they are free to create customized scenarios, event tables etc. and adapt this set for a wider period, ranging from the First World War into the realm of science fiction or a zombie apocalypse.

I helped a little with Smooth and Rifled and if it is anything like that it will be a great little game.

sorry for my english but

no army list, it's a skirmish game (in beta version), it's a tool box for the moment, but is good.

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.
