47 Villainous Cults, Orders and Guilds to Thwart Your Heroes

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

Weary from their long journey back home, our heroes stopped at the threshold of Old Hogge’s Tavern at the edge of town. Climbing the rickety old porch, they spotted the now-too familiar sigil of the Cult of the Eternal Flame carved deeply upon the tavern’s door. Though it was not the first time they had seen the red sigil, it was its presence here on the door of their beloved old stomping ground – the very tavern that brought them together those many years ago – that gave them pause.

The Cult had only grown in number since the end of the war, and now it seemed to be everywhere. Its temples were growing in number, and everywhere the great, ever-burning fires could be seen towering above the city walls...

Within this guide you will find 47 Cults, Secret Orders, Thieves' Guilds, Trades Guilds, and Other organizations to use in your campaign worlds. Each order is described in detail, from its history to its aims and relative strength. Feel free to use these villainous groups in your next - or even current - campaign, and as always, enjoy!

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.
