The Genius Guide to Relics of the Godlings II

Mythology is full of heroes who carried one or two amazing items throughout their adventuring careers. Sometimes the acquisition of the item marked the hero as special from the beginning, or is the catalyst for the heroes early adventures. Often, special magic items are given to heroes by the gods (Perseus famously receives gifts ranging from Hades’ helm of invisibility to Hermes’ winged sandals), or other supernatural forces (many swords of Norse mythology, including Dainsleif, Hqfud, Ridill, and Tyrfing, are forged by the dwarves, who also make magic items for the Norse gods).

While such items are clearly the progenitors of the magic items found in modern fantasy RPGs, there’s often a serious disconnect between how the two kinds of items work. Mythological items are often an important and defining feature of the heroes who carry them, and accompany those heroes throughout a large chunk of their adventures. To help provide an option to fill those roles, we released The Relics of the Godlings to present a new magic item type, the godling relic, and numerous rules for adding them to a campaign.

While that product added eight godling relics, each with powers at levels 1-20, it also included two templates a GM could use to create relic staves and relic weapons quickly and easily. While the book and the idea of godling relics were popular, the overwhelming demand we received was for more templates!

Thus was born Relics of the Godlings II, which presents both six more godling relics and five more templates, covering relic rings, shields, and light, medium, and heavy armors! Each template has some advice on what kinds of powers work well for specific kinds of relic items, and wherever possible we’ve made the templates as flexible and easy to use as possible.

The six godling relics included are:

  • Draupnir: a magic gold ring, with runes of judgment and shrewdness etched into its outer surface.
  • Drakkenhael: said to be the first set of dragonhide armor ever created.
  • Kavacha: a suit of golden armor that was originally worn by a god, at the moment of his birth.
  • Lokanaut: rings of power, also known as the Trickster’s Gift, that make their wearers feel wise and powerful.
  • Myrmix: the legendary armor of champions and charioteers that, according to legend, protects its wearer from all harm, as long as that warrior never refuses any battle.
  • Svalinn: also known as the “Shield that Stands before the Sun,” this heavy metal shield is a powerful tool designed to allow battle-priests and holy (or unholy) warriors to stand up to the most powerful of magics.

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.
