Wicked Fantasy: Roddun: Scourge of the City

Watermarked PDF

The rats? Why complain? What good will it do? What are you gonna do about them? One day, there was nothing, and the next, they were everywhere. Wasn’t like they crept up on us.

It was the plague. That’s what it was. Hit every city like a hammer. They had to burn everything. They burned the clothes, they burned the corpses. They had to burn everything. Left entire barrios like blackened scars. And that’s when the rats moved in.

They say the rats brought the plague themselves with their black magic. Made way for their move. That’s what they say. I don’t know if its true and I ain’t saying as such, but that’s what I heard. I don’t want them looking for me, 

flashing their teeth at me. They’re a part of the city now and that’s that. Like the haffuns, they’re just here and there’s no getting rid of them. So, why bother?

Me, I say keep them. Never been so quiet since they moved in. Got rid of all the filth that was running around here. Don’t see no more gangs, do you? That’s because the rats got rid of them. No more of that.

Sure, I pay them. Why not? If I don’t, I’ll get them gangs back. Better to have the rats than the gangs. And at least them rats understand respect.

— Robin Jestes, Copper Merchant

The Reign of Men does not know what to think of them, but one thing is certain: the "ratmen" are here to stay. They are also the sixth race in the Wicked Fantasy Series, reinventing the classic generic fantasy races with a wicked twist. The ratmen--or "roddun"--have made themselves a home in the Reign of Men... but do they have the will and cunning to stay?

Wicked Fantasy: Scourge of the City includes:

  • New Ratmen Racial Traits
  • New Rules for "Mischiefs," the roddun street gangs that rule the Lower City
  • Gemstone Magic: A trick the roddun "picked up" from the Wicked Fantasy dwarves
  • New Wizard Archetype: the Junk Wizard
  • New Ninja Archetype: the Street Assassin
  • A New Prestige Class: The King Rat
  • A Robust System for City Control
  • And More!

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.
