Welcome to 100 Oddities for a Wizard's Library, third entry in Skirmisher Publishing's ever-expanding series of curiosities designed to fill the empty corners of your campaign worlds! 

Oddities may clutter a shelf or lie forgotten in a corner but are not defined by where they are so much as what they are and are unusual by their very nature. A dead rat in the basement of an abandoned building is not an oddity, but the same dead rat with its eyes sewn shut is. Oddities make you think about why they exist, how they ended up there, even what the hell they are, questions that are key to an engaging and invigorating roleplaying experience. 

Oddities are intended to aid GM creativity and turn possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more. The goal of this publication and the others in this series is to make things more fun and to take your imagination in directions it might not otherwise have gone. 

Volumes in this popular and bestselling series include 100 Oddities for a Chaotic Mutation100 Oddities for a Creepy Old House100 Oddities for a Dungeon100 Oddities for a Found Car100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest100 Oddities for an Egyptian Tomb100 Oddities for a Graveyard100 Oddities for a Pilgrimage Trail100 Oddities for a Sewer100 Oddities for a Thieves’ Guild100 Oddities for a Treasure Horde100 Oddities for a Viking Encounter100 Oddities for a Wasteland100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Library, and 100 Oddities for a Wizard’s Tower

Be sure to check out Skirmisher Publishing's new and already-bestselling TSRPG (Travel-Sized RPG)! This improv storytelling game designed for a storyteller and one or more players can easily be played anywhere, from the airport waiting area you are stuck in, to the overnight in some hotel where there is nothing to do (and also, of course, in your own home). All the basic rules fit on one page; no dice are needed; characters have just two stats; and any bookkeeping that might be required can be done on a cocktail napkin with a pen borrowed from a waiter. We have also released "On the Plane of Magma," the first official adventure for TSRPG and are in development with a number of other supplements!

The preview is useless. It should show the table of contents, or at least a sample entry.

Thanks for your constructive comment and the positive tone you chose to use for it! We have checked the settings for the preview and they look OK to us at this point. Try refreshing this page or viewing it with a different browser if you continue to experience issues viewing the preview for this title, which includes its introduction and the first page from its listing of oddities.

I see more of the problem. The contents seem to be in the Quick Preview. I can't tell; it is too small for me to read!

The full-sized preview only shows the first 2 pages which are basically just title pages.

No, refreshing the page didn't help!

Looks like the publisher fixed it by including a page of example entries in the full-size preview.

This is amazing, I love it. Very creative and inventive. One thing is though, on Google Chrome on the tab the title is "Oddities_Thieves_Guild" instead, so I'm guessing you used the same template and forgot to change it.

Format
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.
