BattleLore Rules & Reference Pack Version 3

I’ve finally finished updating my rules summaries and reference sheets for BattleLore, and this time I’ve put them all together into one download: the BattleLore Rules & Reference Pack. This comprehensive PDF document summarises in compact, easy-to-reference form all the BattleLore rules currently available. If you wish, you’ll never have to use the reference cards again.

You’ll find a host of similar rules summaries and reference sheets for many popular games at Universal Head’s blog site, Headless Hollow, on the Freebies: Boardgame Reference Sheets page.
The Pack lives on the Guild Downloads page, but you can download it direct from here: BattleLore Rules & Reference Pack v3.3: PDF (2Mb)

If you find any errors or have any suggestions for improvement, please let me know.

I must apologise in advance, but I won’t be helping to make or host translations of this file—unfortunately, it’s just too time consuming to provide the original art files, check the layout etc. This latest version will be hosted here in English only, though you can still download the translations that have been done by dedicated fans in the past.

Update: v3.1 has a corrected Terrain Reference page.
Update: v3.2 has a corrected Troll powers section.
Update: v3.3 has corrections to Hills, Cliffs, Bridge and Earth Elemental.

    Really nice work. Only issue I see is the Troll regeneration info is missing having been replaced by Earth/Rock Elemental info on page 12 I believe it was. Thanks again for compiling all this detailed info.

    me again :)
    2 minor corrections: earth elemental does not need to be resummoned in not used (only rock elemental)
    also units fighting from hill down fight with 3 dice not 2 as mentioned (in to out)
    any chance of getting the original file for self-editing ???

    Hi,
    great job!
    Did you made it with latex? I want to make a campaign with my friends, only in private, and your layout is really nice. Can I ask you for it, for personal use only?

    Never heard of latex I’m afraid, this was done in inDesign. I’m sorry, I don’t make the layout or artwork available to anyone, as I have permission from the publisher to use the art only for my own work. Cheers.
