True Naming: A supplement of magic, language, and power [PFRPG]

Watermarked PDF

The concept is as old as the spoken word, and prevalent in fantasy stories. Everything has its own name, and knowledge of that name grants power to the speaker. Ancient tribes called to the names of spirit and lost family members. Kabbalists sought and spoke the name of God. And even in a world without magic, the right name wields enough power to shake continents, whether that is Genghis Khan or Albert Einstein. When the first nuclear test commenced, Robert Oppenheimer called upon the name of Shiva, death, destroyer of worlds.

True Naming contains suggestions for using the power of names, words, magic, and might in your game, new feats for True Names, rules for a new skill, Naming, a new core class, the Namer, and a bonus list of 100 Magical Words and Names. While designed the the Pathfinder RPG, these rules are adaptable for any d20-system game.

I really interesting supplement on an alternate form of magic for your Pathfinder/3.x game. The changes are mostly flavor, but it is a very interesting one. There is a complete class and how they use the secret names to have magical effects. [...]

True Naming is pretty well known as one of D&D 3.5's many, many subsystems that was far more flavorful than it was functional, but Lee's Lists has managed to wrangle both the flavor and the mechanics into a cohesive and evocative (and dare I say it [...]

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.
