D20 Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet


What can be said of the most prolific and archetypal love story in Western culture? That it is full of passion and tragedy, certainly. That it has moments of high comedy and skewering philosophical insights, most assuredly. But will it make a good role-playing game scenario? The author submits that it will. After all, it shares several traits with many a good adventure tale: there are the rival families, Capulet and Montague, waging an overt war on the streets and in the alleys of Verona; there is the love-struck hero, and the fair damsel imprisoned in their familial loyalties; there is intrigue, as the young lovers seek to hide their romance from the public eye, friend and foe alike; there is even the implication that supernatural forces are at work to shape the destinies of the “star-crossed lovers”. This RPG sourcebook focus on the history and setting of this well known Shakespeare piece and how to integrate it into your regular local gaming session. This sourcebook also comes with several adventures seed with different endings to this classic play. You have read the dramatic piece, now play the adventure. Written by Jason J. McCuiston

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.
