These Fields of Blood

Watermarked PDF

These Fields of Blood is a rule set for playing wargames of the American Civil War. The game is designed to play with forces from Brigade to Divisional level, and has the flexibility to play higher and lower level games.

The game uses a unique 'game engine' intended to move players away from tradional 'I-GO-U-GO' systems, and the slow randomness of traditional card based systems, and give a more real simultaneous feel with interaction of the players and forces.

As with other TFP Games, the system reflects the qualities of leadership. The engine creates a system where the pace of action and initiative is determined throughout the turn. Players are forced to make choices and perform actions of which the immediate consequences may not be established. It keeps on your toes every turn.

Players will be able to quickly get to grips with the game as the rules are intuitive and quickly remembered, with several 'playing card' size quick reference cards and Unit Cards providing all you need to manage a game.

See the Battle Report section of this forum to see the game in action.

A supplement for playing the American War of Independence has been release in PDF format called Land of the Free.

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.
