B/X Companion

Watermarked PDF

The B/X Companion is a re-imagining of what could have been, had the 1981 editions of the Original Fantasy Role-Playing Game (the Basic and Expert sets edited by Tom Moldvay, Dave Cook, and Steven Marsh) been followed up by a third Companion volume promised in their pages. Using the same format as the original volumes, and working from the hints and info provided in those 1981 editions, the B/X Companion provides rules for high level play, including levels 15th through 36th, 60+ new spells, 100+ new magic items, 80+ new monsters, rules for running dominions, mass combat & siege warfare, astral travel, and more...all in 64 pages.

Interested in the product and I was wondering about the fast combat optional rules I see in the table of contents, can anyone tell me more about it? Can I use it in Basic and Expert level combat for example?

I would also order it POD if that was an option!

Is this still with the original layout or has it been updated with Souvenir font etc? If not, would you like help with that before bringing it back into print?

This site is starting to offer print on demand for some classic D&D titles. Maybe yours too?

You're not the only one, Albert!

We are approaching "critical mass" with the number of folks interested in a print copy. When there are enough that it makes sense, I'll do another print run of the book and contact all interested parties...though probably not till after August.

Sign me up for wanting a print copy! Bought my PDF a while back, really great stuff. Especially for the Thief, the lost child of later versions.

@ Joshua:

Thank you for your business and for taking the time to comment!

There's quite a bit of new B/X material in the book, including new thief skills, new spells (for both clerics and magic-users), several new monsters, new magical items (including a whole new category: Books!), plus new systems for domain management and mass combat. There are additional rules in the Encounter chapter including variable weapon damage by class (rather than weapon type) and two weapon fighting, and additional specialists in the Adventure chapter as well as notes on hazardous environments. The optional Bard class is new for B/X, and the system given for astral projection (the last chapter) is also different from spell-based systems.

However, the thing I like most about the book is that all the options and new stuff are specifically geared for use in "high level" play, to challenge players who have gone beyond the challenges of standard B/X. For example, the turning table for clerics...See more

Somehow after reading through this I was left feeling like there just wasn't much meat on these bones.

I think that was sort of the point, as it's aiming for a feel that is B/X with a few more levels on top, but I felt like mostly this book was just telling me things I already know with the tables extended a bit.

I may be selling it short, but glossing through the spells and monsters, things looked mostly like stuff I've already played with for many many years.

@ [purchaser]:

It's certainly possible you saw some things you've seen before. However, I included quite a few of my own original ideas. These appear mostly in the monsters, spells, and treasures section. Many of these things are specifically present to facilitate high level play. Likewise, the domain and mass combat rules are different from what you'll find in earlier books.

I can only suggest giving it a more thorough read. But, yes, part of its design is with an eye towards "economy of space" so it doesn't have nearly the page count of similar products.

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
