The Landsraad is the great council of the Houses that decides the fate of the Imperium under the will of the Emperor. Meeting on Kaitain, the Imperial homeworld, this chorus of powerful voices meet to make deals, craft alliances, crush enemies, and take vengeance in the halls of power. Here, whole worlds can be laid waste at the stroke of a pen and riches beyond your wildest dreams can be bestowed for nothing more than a promise of support.

The Great Game: Houses of the Landsraad is a complete 128-page digital supplement for Dune - Adventures in the Imperium that expands your campaign away from Arrakis into the vast and deadly Imperium. It offers the opportunity for your House to vie for power among its peers. Politic with your rivals, bring power and wealth to your House, and challenge your position among the most deadly powerbrokers of the Landsraad.

The Imperium is waiting for you, and your House, to take your place among the powers of the Landsraad. Will it be only a step from the throne or under the heel of your enemies?

The Great Game: Houses of the Landsraad includes:

  • Comprehensive detail on the nature and politics of the Landsraad council and the complex relationships between the Houses that keeps the Imperium turning.
  • Secrets of the art of kanly, the rules that govern assassination by blade or poison, and how to manage a deadly war of assassins.
  • Expanded notes on CHOAM, with options and new talents for CHOAM agent player characters. Full dossiers on an array of the most important Houses of the Landsraad, such as the fallen House Richese, the aggressive House Moritani, the noble House Taligari, and the devious House Wydras.
  • A Navigator’s guide to the mysterious Spacing Guild and their place in the Imperium, with new talents and focuses for Guild Agent player characters.
  • Cross space in a moment in a Guild Heighliner, with detail on space travel and managing journeys across the Imperium, with or without the Guild.
  • New rules for building any of the ‘million worlds’ that can be found in the Known Universe or beyond. Create the homeworld of your House, your enemy’s domain, or a new planet ripe for exploitation.
  • A complete system for House management, allowing you to craft and build your domains, construct new planetary facilities, manage downtime, and gain leverage and favor from your peers as the power of your House grows.

All the links in the table of contents lead to the cover rather than the proper internal page. Can we get that fixed?

I'm 9 pages in and already we've got two serious typographical problems. On page 8, the initial capital I covers some text that you have to highlight and copy to read. ("There are many parallels throughout ancient history, most barely remembered.") On page 9, the section entitled "The High Council" ends with the cryptic sentence "I like Dune." Modiphius already has a reputation for poor editing, but this is something else.

Okay, I spent a few minutes checking. The initial capitals on pages 8, 14, 19, 68, 80, and 86 (as per the printed numbers on the pages) all look terrible, in both the printer-friendly and standard editions. Also, the bookmark "Houses of the Landsraad" goes to page 7, rather than to the correct page 19. Also, the PDF page numbers don't align with the printed page numbers; they're 7 pages behind. This PDF doesn't have alternate page numbers.

I'm actually running a game of Dune that's not set on Arrakis and focuses on this kind of material, so I'm extremely excited for this book. Doubtless I'll reply to this message with more editorial criticism as the day goes on.

Having gotten further in the book, I can say that a regular scroll jumps straight from page 84 - again, as per printed page numbers - to page 117. I guess it has something to do with the bookmarks being placed improperly?

Thanks for letting us know. I'll wait to see if they provide a revised version before purchasing this one.

Hi George. Sorry that you're having issues reading this PDF, but this isn't something we've heard from anyone else and we've had multiple members of the team test this on different devices and been unable to replicate most of the issues you're describing. The initial capital text displays perfectly for us and the scroll jump from 84 to 117 doesn't happen for any of us. The page numbers are staggered due to the intro pages being numbered deliberately differently and the page numbers display correctly in the reader for us. However, the extra text on page 9 and the broken 'Houses of the Landsraad' bookmark will be fixed in an updated PDF soon. Anyone who purchased the PDF will be notified of the update once it's available.

In general, our PDFs will work perfectly with most PDF readers, but we can't guarantee that they will work on every possible combination of device and software. Where text or display issues like this occur, we would suggest opening the PDF with different reader software and/or on a...See more

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.
