Selected Option:
PDF + Poster(s)

“All drow are alike, and the only good drow is a dead one.”

Assume all drow are the same at your peril - especially in Porphyra!  On the Patchwork Planet, dark elves were summoned from disparate and distant worlds, with entirely different origins, masters, and plans.  Scattered across the Underdeep, the drow have thrived below and made secret forays into the lands above.  They are ready to become tempting dreams and lurking nightmares anywhere, in any campaign that wants something more from drow than what you’ve seen before.

Each chapter in the drow of Porphyra focuses on one of the tribes, providing all of the following:

  • A brief history of the tribe on their home world and in recent nights
  • The hierarchies and divisions of their society, from nobles to guilds and beyond
  • Laws and punishments particular to the culture
  • Religious expectations, whether they follow one god or many or none
  • Goals for characters within their families, groups, cities, and nations
  • Notable cities and plot hooks for interacting with the tribe, from within or without
  • Methods common to their kind, whether they rely on raids or seduction or other guises
  • Racial and faction traits to help customize your characters from the base on up
  • Alternate systems and mechanics necessary for the tribe (and for evil or other campaigns)
  • Feats and equipment that are useful to have at hand
  • Details for creating player characters, allies, antagonists, and others with new depths

You never know what the next chapter will reveal, but together, the drow of Porphyra cover a powerful range of roleplaying experiences.  Add one or all of them to your game now!

This volume focuses on the Karza, favored children of the Dark Mother of verminkind.  They are blessed with an aberrant fertility that allows them to swarm over their enemies as no other drow can.  They raid to feed their hunger for slaves and violence, as well as their goddess's hunger for souls.  Their laws are few, their fervor unyielding, and their fear nonexistent.  After all, there will always be more!

Highlights include:

  • Unique drow statistics, including alternate traits that reflect their vermin brethren
  • Systems for harvesting poison after combat or creating entirely new ones
  • A new vision of the goddess Karzerothrine, worshiped by those who dwell below
  • The verminkind domain and spider subdomain

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.
