25 Nasty Chemicals (and what they’ll do to you)

Watermarked PDF

Got 99 problems? Make sure that coming up with a dangerous chemical for tonight's game isn't one!

25 Nasty Chemicals (and what they’ll do to you) is a finely crafted list of mostly historically accurate and verisimilitudinous chemicals collected by our semi-professional chemists. Perfect for what that barrel in the warehouse your soldier PCs just shot up is full of, or to make your Tinker Gnomes a little more dangerous.

Includes a guide to reading the entries and safety information.

A sample of what you might find:

13. Silane (g), 2/4/3/--. Burns spontaneously in air but needs a point of ignition--which can be dust, moisture, or contact with a rough surface. Very unpredictable because of this. Can burn in carbon dioxide meaning it will continue to burn once all of the oxygen in a room has been used up, making glass powder as it burns. Clear gas that smells like vinegar. Can be found in hightech factories and anywhere high-purity glass or silicon is needed for magical reagents. A decay product from the metabolism of some earth elementals in place of methane produced by most creatures.

This product is system and genre agnostic, so feel free to use it to use it to disfigure your fantasy PCs, to name your tanks in any number of popular war games set in the far future, to add some realism to your virtual reality simulator adventures, or just to spark your own imagination!

High marks for selecting some truly unpleasant real substances and describing in much detail just how badly they behave. The fantasy overlay that the author's tried to apply, in the final third of each entry, just seems random and non-contributory but [...]

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.
