Deimos Battle System

Watermarked PDF

 This is a battle system that can be used to play large-scale battles in the 5th edition. This system can be used as a tactical wargame where two players build their armies and clash on the field of battle. It can also be used to role-play a war in your campaign and in such a context, the friendly side will be controlled by the player characters and the enemy side by the gamemaster.

This system is meant to provide greater complexity in the building of an army and in the playing of a battle compared to the existing rules that handle large-scale battles. Also, Deimos provides an inexpensive solution in the role-playing of war in a campaign. The battlefield and the units can be created with simple and cheap materials and the various tokens that are needed are readily available. However, be warned that Deimos is not ideal for a group that prefers to play such a battle quick and dirty because a whole gaming session must be devoted to the clash of armies on the battlefield. 

You can use this system to play a war of epic proportions where thousands or even tens of thousands of soldiers and monsters clash or to depict the siege of a small fort manned by two hundred soldiers against a tribe of marauding orcs or even to lead a band of a few dozen desperate villagers in the defence of their homes against brigands or goblins. The Deimos system can handle all these situations with equal ease and provide greater depth and excitement in your fantasy battles.

When you purchase the Deimos Battle System you will get the rulebook which contains the core ruleset and a few optional rules, sample unit templates and a selection of spells converted to the Deimos war magic system. You will also get,

  • An interactive pdf document with which you can build warcards for the officers, units and fortifications of your army.
  • The Battle of Silver and Black which is a collection of three documents that constitute a battle scenario that can get you started on the Deimos system. The warcards for the units of both armies and the special rules that pertain to this battle are included.

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.
