BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules

Watermarked PDF

The New Year is a great time to pick up a New Game, so we've marked this digital title down by 25%! To find more savings, visit our New Year, New Game sale page.

The BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules are a table top fantasy roleplaying game which emulates the game play of the original basic rule book, popularly known as the Holmes Edition or simply the Blue Book. Unlike those basic rules, however, this book allows for characters of 1st to 20th levels, and include everything the referee could possibly need to create and run a campaign in the Underworld, the Wilderness, or the Realm: monsters, magic, treasure, and … well, what more do you need? BLUEHOLME™ Journeymanne Rules are fully compatible with the BLUEHOLME™ Prentice Rules, and can be used with most old-school adventure modules.

If I buy this now, will there be some kind of discount when the print version comes around?

There will be a OneBookShelf print + PDF bundle option available later. In the meantime, you can always buy the Lulu print version, and get a free PDF with it.

I'd also like to add that I'm a bit confused as to what the intention is in regards to races and classes. In the Prentice rules, under each race description it specifically states what classes and multiclass combos are available to each race.

In the Journeymanne Rules on page 4, '3. Choose a race for the character.' it specifically states, "This determines which classes are available...", but in this rules set the racial abilities are not explained in Part 2, but instead in chapter 6. When you go to the monster description of that race, there's no mention of class restrictions. I can find no chart, and under the classes itself its rather vague. Magic-user for example, it states, "Many races count magic-users amongst their number."

this is really confusing, because of the verbiage on page 4. If its the intention of the rules to leave what classes are available to the races to the referee, I understand that, but as it is, it has me looking for rules which don't seem...See more

Good point re: the wording on p.4 - I'll revise this to make it more explicit. The intention is that any class is available to any race, with the agreement of the referee.

I had a feeling that was the case, and I'm totally fine with it, but to me at least... and this could be because I've got so many old school/ new school rules in my head... it was a bit confusing. Thanks!!

Not at all, thank you for pointing it out. It's often difficult to tell whether you're being clear when you've been editing a text for 5 years. ;-)

Reading the rules still. Found a spelling error: Part 4 Adventures, page 46, under The Realm. Civilized is spelled with an "S".

That's not actually a typo. It's what we call British English in these parts. ;-)

Thanks for spotting that! There is indeed a stray sentence that mentions sub-classes, which will be eliminated with the next art update. There are, in fact, no sub-classes in the Journeymanne Rules - these will appear in later publications under the name of Maester Classes, but the Journeymanne Rules will only ever include the four basic classes of cleric, fighter, magic-user, and thief. However, with the combination-class rules it is possible to create a wide range of different class types, from that old favourite, the fighting mage, to the more unusual clerical magic-using thief.

The game mentions each class has sub-classes, but I do not see a single one. Am I missing something?

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.
