The 9th Age: Fantasy Battles
Please note that when both Legendary and Slim books exist in the same version, either one is valid; otherwise the one with higher version number takes primacy. Documents not matching the "x" and "y" of x.y.z_# version of the Rulebook are not considered up to date.
Legendary Army Books are documents in which we provide an in-world view of the armies you can play in The Ninth Age: Fantasy Battles, with background context, illustrations and armies descriptions. While we do not have a Legendary Army Book for all armies yet, we work constantly to enrich this collection.
We deliver our Legendary Army books in several formats, to fit the best of your needs.
First, we have two document qualities:
- Online versions are PDF documents with a medium definition, designed to be lighter to download and view (notably on mobile devices). They are typically smaller than 10Mb.
- Print versions have a higher definition, but are also heavier to download and browse. You can use them if you want to print the documents with a better output. They weigh 50 to over 100Mb, depending on the document.
In addition, the contents of files varies a little bit a well:
- Full versions contain background about the army, as well as the whole army definition (rules, units, items, and points).
- "No points" versions have almost the same contents as full versions, but they do not contain pricing information (points). This means that they should not change with yearly balancing patches: you can print them with more confidence.
- Background-only versions only contain the background of the army, but no gaming information.
In this page, for better navigability, you will only find direct links to the Full, Online versions of those Legendary Army Books; but each of these links will bring you to a page where you can find links to the other versions.
