The Baleful Sorcerer of Tsathag'kha


What if you want to play a sinister student of the black arts like in a sword-and-sorcery pulp?

This is an alternative (and old school, in my opinion) magic-user class for those who want something a little different, influenced by Clark Ashton Smith.  The Baleful Sorcerer of Tsathag'kha is compatible with the original fantasy roleplaying gameand RPGs of such ilk.

This is a free product as a "Thank You!" to those who have purchased my Lovecraftian, OSR dungeon crawl Liberation of the Demon Slayer, and those who might be interested in my future module, The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence.  Yes, indeed, Kort'thalis Publishing is here to stay.

I wasn't expecting much out of this. A wizard class is a wizard class, right?

I was wrong. This one isn't necessarily about mechanics of magic, but an interesting character template that would be fun to create and play over time. After reading this my first question was : "What kind of person is this?" I'd have to play one to find out how one of them (and only one, as I can't see members of this class as stereotypical) would unfold as an individual personality.

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.
