1645: The Plundering Time

Suggested Price $10.00

Welcome to The Plundering Time, a TTRPG set in early colonial Maryland, a time of intense sectarian, political, and cultural conflict. Europeans will flee the burning wreckage of their adopted hometown, out into the unmapped and untamed wilds of The New World. Native American characters must react quickly and strategically to the sudden upheaval of regional power, safeguarding their own family's and territory as the Powhatan Confederacy begins to collapse.

Your characters are only humans- not heroes. You will roam the dangers of this land struggling every day with the forces of nature and the varying antagonistic factions that will harry your every move. Whether a gentleman of England’s aristocracy or a slave from the west shores of Africa, this conflict has the potential to change your fortunes forever. As the class structure of the Old World crumbles, what new life will your make for yourself?

Simplicity is the core philosophy behind every mechanic, and that will be evident as the game is played. You roll a d20 for every action, with a GM setting difficulty by choosing a number. Accompanying spreadsheets will assist with difficulty controls and character creation.

Combat features a high-damage, low-HP system that makes every encounter potentially fatal and will require players to work as a team to gain game-changing advantages on the battlefield.

For shorter campaigns or One-Shots, your goal might be to survive long enough to establish a new life for yourself. For longer campaigns, you may yet have a hand in the retaking of your old lands from the enemies.

I had the opportunity to test an early version of TPT a couple months ago. The amount research and work that went into this game is incredible and is sure to make any history nerd delighted. While most history books tend to focus on some of the other [...]

As a table top neophyte, having only been through a bit of Dungeons & Dragons 5E, I didn't know exactly what to expect when playing 1645: The Plundering Time. What I found was a surprisingly nuanced, and detailed gaming experience [...]

Taking place in the real world of 1645, I expected this to basicly be just a history lesson. Turns out, it's a fun adventure game! For the most part you're a refugee trying to survive in the world. How you go about this has so many options it's basicly [...]

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.
