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…"
