For Guild and Glory - A "The Quiet Year" free Variant


For Guild and Glory is a free variant to use with the popular map/storytelling game "The Quiet Year" by Buried Without Ceremony. You must own the original rules of "The Quiet Year" in order to play this variant.

Below is the original description of "The Quiet Year", followed by how this variant changes things.<o:p></o:p>

“The Quiet Year is a map game. You define the struggles of a post-apocalyptic community and attempt to build something good within their quiet year. Every decision and every action is set against a backdrop of dwindling time and rising concern. The game is played using a deck of cards – each of the 52 cards corresponds to a week during the quiet year. Each card triggers certain events – bringing bad news, good omens, project delays and sudden changes in luck.”

What this Variant is about: Instead of a post-apocalyptic setting, this setting will focus on a classic medieval fantasy style setting. Players will look over members of a new adventurer’s guild establishing their presence in a brand-new thriving settlement to ensure it prospers. The area around the settlement is mostly unknown and presents new opportunities (resources, magical items, etc.), but also new problems (monsters, rival settlements, etc.).   After a year, a Dark Lord will arrive in the land and the group will have to decide if their town of heroes can stand up to this insurmountable force, or if they fall. In this version of “The Quiet Year”, you will be acting primarily as the group of adventurers and their leaders rather than the entire community. The focus of this version is to tell stories of how heroes work together to better the community.

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.
