Signs & Portents - Issue 12

Watermarked PDF

Issue 12 of Signs & Portents sees us mark our first full year, quite an accomplishment for ay new magazine! With the arrival of tabletop games S&P is becoming even more diverse, and always has something to appeal to any Mongoose fan. This is what we have coming in Issue 12…

Branding Belle – Mongoose editor Richard Ford has penned a short tale of brutality and ruthlessness to accompany the release of OGL Wild West. To get your own inspiration you only have to turn on your TV – it’s still the most popular film genre of all time!

Way of the Fist – Sort of like Bruce Lee meets Babylon 5. We introduce expanded rules for incorporating Mutari into your Babylon 5 games, with some great new feats for all the major races. The next time some peace loving Minbari lectures you about your behaviour, you can hit him with a Stagger and Sway move or perhaps a Stonehead Strike. Mind you, he might be an Instinctual student, in which case you may be in a spot of bother yourself!

Creature Feature – Oozes – The return of our popular occasional series on new monsters brings a selection of oozes for your delectation. Johnathan M. Richards is determined to expand your understanding of these piles of sludge. Meet the Aquatic Pudding, the Inebriator Jelly and a bucket load more.

How It All Began – Part 2 of Gary Gygax’s exclusive look back on the foundation of roleplaying. Any serious student of roleplaying will be fascinated to read what the hobby’s godfather has to reveal about how the hobby began.

The Bandit – A brand new character class variant for Conan the Roleplaying Game. This is the land version of a pirate, but he’s no dashing Robin Hood type. Hyborian bandits steal from the rich, then steal from the poor as well before selling their children into slavery. But what do you care? Think of all the gold you can spend carousing and wenching in the bordellos of Shadizar or the harems of Aghrapur!

Mighty Armies Reinforcements – This month Matthew Sprange encourages you to expand your horizon, by trying out your Mighty Armies forces in a siege or even a full-blown campaign. The perfect introduction for the new Wild Elves army, I’d say. Time to put those Orcs and Barbarians to the sword!

Birthday Surprise – This appropriately titled graphic story is actually from the devastated world of Armageddon: 2089. No other clues though, or we might ruin the story.

Going Underground – Philadelphia – Part 2 of our series about the Mega-City One Undercity for Judge Dredd takes us to the mean streets of Philly – only now they are even meaner, with troggies and their ilk hiding around every corner. Don’t worry, though. The brand new Undercity Guide prestige class will make sure you don’t get too lost…

What’s In A Name? – Part 2 of this series on Hyborian names turns its attention to the residents of Argos and Cimmeria. Now you don’t have to call every barbarian you meet Conan. Hmm, Brian the Cimmerian…it could happen!

Something Fishy This Way Comes – The scenario in this issue focuses on the carnival – fantasy style of course. Try your hand at throwing knives at helpless women, try barefist boxing, look at the Gallery of Aberrance or possibly even attempt to complete the plot. The choice is yours. Watch out for Del’Rey the Magnificent though….oh, and Tommi Two-Axe.

All this plus regulars like Jonny Nexus and Inside the Chainmail Bra, along with our first annual questionnaire which has a huge prize attached to it, and we mean HUGE!

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.
