The Monarch's Court


The Monarch's Court

A DM's Guide to Taking the Characters to the Royal Court

This guide presents guidelines and rules for introducing a monarch's court (and everything that happens there) into your D&D game. It's built from an historical perspective, based on the late medieval and renaissance courts of England. You can build off of this to add whatever "level" of fantasy elements you wish to add, although some things are included in the guide.

Included in the guide are:

  • A lexicon of court terminology
  • A look at a variety of different court events
  • Titles and forms of address and their place at court
  • Racial variatiions on the typical human court
  • An example human court filled with interesting NPCs and hooks for courtly intrigue
  • Four adventure ideas for getting the characters involved in court
  • An overview of how select skills can be used in ways unique to court
  • A variety of gifts courtiers might present to adventurers
  • Three court-themed magic items
  • Two court-themed traps
  • A variety of court-themed NPC stat blocks

This guide gives the DM an abundance of information to take their characters to the royal court and get them into all sorts of trouble.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
