Might & Melee - Fantasy Book I - by Fistful of Lead


Might & Melee - Book I 

Might & Melee is a standalone book. Players familiar with Fistful of Lead will find the core mechanics the same. What we’ve added is flavor for the genre. 

This rulebook can be used by itself for skirmishes between knightly retinues or barbarian warlords, but it is also the first book of three for using Fistful of Lead in a larger fantasy setting. The second book introduces magic, while the third brings in mythical monsters and the underground world they often inhabit.

We’re using the term Medieval in a broad sense. You should be able to use these rules for anything from a Viking Raid to a skirmish between Yorkists and Lancastrians. Covers Dark Ages, Middle Ages, and War of the Roses. You could also use these rules, with a few tweaks, for non-European combats like those between samurai.  

Might & Melee doesn’t focus on huge battles. Instead we’re focusing on individuals. A knight could go his whole life and never see a battle, but he would see numerous skirmishes against robber knights, old enemies and bandits. Not to mention the occasional marauding dragon.

Fistful of Lead: Might & Melee IS NOT a faithful historical recreation of Medieval combat, but rather a Hollywood version of it.

Is it playable solo or co-op.
Or is it PVP only?

When building your retinue, the book says you can replace one of your regulars with 3 rabble. is this limited to one slot? or can you replace multiple or all of your regulars with rabble?

That is the standard. If you want to try it with more than one Rabble, you can but it becomes hard to track that many minis after awhile.

Thanks, I think the system is interesting so far. I intend to write up a full review once I get a few games in.

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.
