Swordpoint is a d100 swashbuckling-themed zine using the Legend OGL (from Mongoose Publishing). The tone and theme is inspired by MusketeersCaptain Alatriste, and European Continent around the 1600s, as well as older games like En Garde, Flashing Blades, and more. As part of Gallant Knight Games' participation in the 2021 ZineQuest on Kickstarter, Alan Bahr did the layout himself. 

From Alan: "The rules are condensed to about 60 pages in a 5"x8" landscape format. I always wanted to try a landscape book, and I like how they read on tablets and phones, so I figured why not. I did all the layout myself, so it's not super fancy, but I tried to keep it simple and functional."

What it has:

  • The rules you need to play. A hacked d100 system (it'll feel familiar if you know d100 RPGs.)
  • New rules for this iteration of the d100 RPG: Style points. Streamlined combat. A lightweight magic system. 
  • Genre rules for grudges, revenge, rank, duels, and some enemies (not many enemies though. Like 3.)
  • A compatibility license. 
  • PDF bookmarks. 

What it doesn't have:

  • Lots of rules.
  • Lots of art. Most of the art is from Shutterstock or public domain. There's only like 5-6 pieces in the book total, just to fill white space.
  • Fancy layout. Remember: DIY layout. It should be pretty straightforward and easy to read though.

At this time, due to the sizing format, there is no POD, though we are looking into the option.

Hi Alan, is it possible to have a more informative preview? The current one, despite being the first six pages, doesn’t tell us anything about the game.

Hey Allan,
Have you any plan to give us a character sheet ?
Or just like Siege Perilous an index card could do the trick ?

Hello Alan, i have a question about a small detail : can main gauche dagger type could be used only as a small shield rather than a second weapon ?

i mean usually those are used to deflect and or lock other swords.

I don't see why you couldn't rule that!

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.
