ZIP File
A Turn of Events: Action Cards for Adventurous Souls is a set of cards in PDF format intended to add a fun extra dimension to gaming sessions by increasing roleplaying opportunities.


Boon, Critical Hit/Fumble, and Curse cards can all be used in any gaming session where the DM sees fit in order to add an element of random chance and fortune (or misfortune) to the game. Use of these cards in actual game play may sometimes seem contrived, but much of the time it will seem very natural and realistic. In either case, they will be fun and that is what is most important!


DMs can award these cards to (or inflict them on) players for good roleplay, staying within alignment (or not), teamwork, acts of extreme bravery or selfishness, or any other reason deemed fit.


Whether the fortunes smile or frown on your players is entirely up to them. With A Turn of Events, everything can change!

For most of the book, Turn of Events is a pretty useful supplement of event cards that changes or enhances the outcome of events in an RPG game. Unfortunately, the supplement stumbles towards its end by providing useless curse cards that seriously stre [...]

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.
