Sahasra - Items of Magic and War

Watermarked PDF
Filled with the treasures of Sahasra, the fantasy setting inspired by folklore of ancient India, this book reveals many of the weapons, armor, animals, magic items and artifacts that can be found within Sahasra's fabled borders.

Inspired by historical accounts of weaponry and treasure of India, Items of Magic and War contains descriptions and stats for seventy-six new items. Here are two examples:


This cursed item is a cup formed from a humanoid skull. Any liquid poured into the item and drunk tastes like blood to the imbiber. Further, someone who drinks from this cup falls into a berserk state. The victim gains a +2 bonus to his attack rolls and a +1 to his damage rolls. He also suffers a -2 penalty to his AC and attacks the nearest creature on sight, be it friend or foe. The effect lasts for 24 hours or until a remove curse is cast upon the afflicted.

The Vajragada

  • Cost: 30 gp
  • DMG (S): 1D8
  • DMG (M): 1D10
  • Critical: 19-20, x2
  • Weight: 9 pounds
  • Type: Bludgeoning and Piercing
  • Category: Martial
  • Hardness: 10
  • HP: 15
The vajragada is similar in all ways to a normal gada, but larger and requiring a two-handed grip. Another addition is the small, four-inch long blade protruding from the top of the weapon, and the other three two-inch blades that protrude from the side of the head. The top blade typically has a wave pattern, symbolizing the mystical vajra, or thunderbolt weapon, which gives this armament its name. There is a cold-iron version of this weapon called a vajparigha, and possesses the same stats as above, but costs 300gp.

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.
