Tome Four: Doglocks and Draughts

INSPIRED by "Swords and Wizardry Appreciation Day", and written over the WEEKEND despite a HANGOVER from my BACHELOR PARTY!

DESTROY YOUR ENEMIES with the terrible might of GUNPOWDER, assuming it doesn't BLOW UP and DESTROY YOU FIRST! Like JOHN CARTER and SOLOMON KANE, DISCOVER that UNSTABLE FIREARMS have a proper and EXCITING place in your OLD SCHOOL GAMES!

Or maybe you're MORE INTERESTED in things you can DRINK? Not everyone has the same access to MAGIC or ALCHEMICAL LAB EQUIPMENT, so they have to rely on POWERFUL POTABLES that have both a BENEFIT and a POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECT!

IVANHOE UNBOUND is PROUD to present these TEN FIREARMS and TEN MEDICINES for SWORDS AND WIZARDRY WHITEBOX or ANY OTHER OLD SCHOOL GAME based on the 1974 three booklet version of the WORLD-FAMOUS RPG whose name rhymes with "TRUNCHEONS AND FLAGONS!"

AND SPEAKING OF BOOKLETS, this supplement comes in POCKETMOD FORMAT. Print out a SINGLE PIECE OF PAPER which can be TRANSFORMED with FOLDS and a single cut into a TINY EIGHT PAGE BOOKLET with EVERYTHING YOU NEED to use these items in your OSR game!

Plus, while THE TINY BOOKLET IS ADORABLE, there's also a couple of larger-size versions so you can KILL MORE TREES!

And as a SPECIAL BONUS, the actual supplement doesn't use EXCESSIVE CAPITAL LETTERS!

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.
