A-Viking We Will Go!

            Vikings. These ancient warriors, seafarers, and explorers have left an undisputable mark on the course of western history. Throughout the middle-ages they were feared and hated throughout Europe as an unstoppable scourge of rabid barbarians. In the East, a group of Vikings formed one of the most elite military units in the Byzantine Empire. They were far ahead of their time in terms of seamanship, and their extensive travels brought them to nearly every corner of the world, long before most of their contemporaries.

            Now you, too, can harness the power of the Viking. This book takes a look at what it means to be a Viking, both from a historical perspective, providing information on Vikings in the way that historical evidence indicates they really were, and from a mythological perspective, providing information on the modern myth of the Viking, and the way that Vikings are seen today by many people, regardless of whether or not it’s accurate, and also provides some advice and suggestions for running Viking-themed adventures.

            Even better, though, Ancient Warriors: The Vikings provides seven brand new and highly expansive and detailed archetypes for a variety of classes, allowing them to bring out their inner berserker. On top of this, the book contains three prestige classes—the berserker, the housecarl, and the jomsviking, each of which not only has new and exciting mechanics that make the class come alive, but also contain detailed background information and tips on roleplaying characters of that class.

            If you’re a fan of Vikings, this book is a great tool towards creating a truly memorable Viking experience at the table. If you’re somehow not a fan of Vikings, that’s fine too: by the time you’re done with this book, you will be.

Format

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.
