Character Portraits, Set 1


Character Portraits, by Avalon Games, is an exciting and cheep way to give your fantasy, role-playing characters, that extra flare. Often the best part of a role-playing game, and the most important, is when you introduce your character for the first time. What better way is there to show everyone sitting around the table what your character looks like, then with a full color portrait. As they say, a picture can say a thousand words.

Included within each set are 10 full color character portraits, with each set covering a different race and sex. Each set of portraits comes with different types of characters, be they warriors, mages, or some other exciting profession, so there is always plenty of options to chose from when you are looking for what your character looks like.

At a cost of less then a $1 a picture, there can be no better way to improve your gaming experience then with Avalon Games's Character Portraits.

Also included with each set are two bonus black and white art works.

This first set covers fantasy human males. 10 heroic figures to wow your friends with.

While there?s no replacement for verbally describing your role-playing game character, having an artistic rendition of the character you describe can enhance the character?s ?reality.? Knowing just what he or she looks like brings an extra amount of [...]

Imagine that you have a friend that likes to draw. He?s probably not skilled enough to make a living doing nothing but illustrations, but he?s a fair enough artist that you ask him to do some character portraits for your regular D&D game. Your amat [...]

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.
