Description Edit | History

Publisher Info:

In 1984, a cult classic RPG was released: Maelstrom by Alexander Scott.

Featuring a historical setting, ordinary people as characters, the original freeform magic system and an extensive herbal section, this game sold huge numbers of copies around the world. Long out of print until Arion Games revived it a few years ago, Maelstrom nevertheless held a special place in the hearts of many gamers.

And now, Maelstrom returns in a brand new edition. The game is set in England in the year 1086, still suffering the aftermath of the Norman conquest twenty years earlier. The characters are “special agents” for a powerful Norman Baron, investigating the strange and unusual for a handful of coin, their only qualification being that they have themselves experienced a strange event!

This new version of the Rulebook features:

+ All new lifepath character creation system - a great mini-game in its own right!

+ Revised and updated living abilities and game rules still based on D100 and D6

+ Fast and deadly combat system with lots of tactical options

+ Revised freeform Magick system

+ Rules for the Maelstrom and Breaches

+ Referee advice

+ A guide to life in 1086

+ A complete setting guide to the area around York

+ 100 new herbs

More Information Edit | History

From the back of the book:

Maelstrom was one of the classic Roleplaying games of the 1980’s, innovative in design and setting alike.

Revised, rewritten and updated for a new gaming generation, Maelstrom Domesday is a game of supernatural investigation in Anglo-Norman England. Rebellion, horror and fear stalk the villages, towns and cities of the new Norman kingdom, and only a brave and disparate band can prevent a decline into anarchy.

A lifepath system creates characters that are both deep and yet competent for the tasks ahead. Rewritten and expanded rules provide fast and flexible gameplay whilst still covering most in-play situations. The original Maelstrom free-form magic system allows a magical character to accomplish almost anything…at a price.

This core book also includes a full guide to life in 1086 and a richly described setting complete with dozens of
important personages, adventure hooks and locations. There is enough in this one book for years of play and
hundreds of adventures.

So grab your dice, open this book and enter the world of Maelstrom Domesday…"
