Deadly Blows


Are your critical hits boring? Do the players at your table yawn and mumble a double-damage die result without feeling the excitement of having scored a masterful blow against a challenging foe? When the GM rolls a critical is it just another die roll? Breathe life back into the fateful attacks that can turn a battle on its head. The six charts in this pdf turn vanilla critical hits into a more meaningful, fun, and dangerous Deadly Blows and breathe new life into the battlefield!

Deadly Blows is a set of six critical hit tables you can use with most fantasy pen and paper role-playing games. They provide both descriptive text and conditional effects for critical attack successes. Results are determined by attack type and a d100 die roll. Deadly Blows pulls no punches. The tables include broken bones, severed limbs, blindness, and many other dire results, but the in-game effects of these terrible injuries are determined by you and the other players at your table.


Bringing furred or feathered friends along on an adventure is a common fantasy trope. Animal Companions is an OSR-friendly advancement system for mundane creatures that gives beasts of burden and pets a little extra survivability and utility. It includes rules for acquiring companions, training them, and maintaining their loyalty plus advancement and quirk tables for nine categories of mundane beasts.

Hexed Places are outdoor locations and encounters based on the classic six-mile hex format and OSR sensibilities. Use these locales as a quick side adventure, to fill a blank spot in your campaign sandbox, or expand upon them to create a multi-session campaign. Each Hexed Places includes a regional overview, expanded one-mile per hex maps for players and GMs, encounter and rumor tables, and descriptions of individual locations, encounters, and features within the hex.

Hi David. If you look at the full-size preview you can see two of the included tables of critical results in full. They are representative of the other product content. --Mark

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.
