From the Vats

Selected Option:

54 pages of community-created, bio-sorcery weirdness.


  • One full adventure: The Submerged Spire of Sarpedon the Shaper, by Ben Laurence.
  • Two one-page adventures by Alex Schröder and Anders Hedenbjörk Lager.
  • 25 new monsters.
  • 7 new magic items.
  • 6 new spells.

Much of the content can be dropped into any campaign without the need for further material, however reference is sometimes made to the vivimancer class, a magic-user sub-class specialising in flesh-warping, genetic meddling, neural manipulation, and vat growth. This class was first presented, in a basic form, in Theorems & Thaumaturgy (available in PDF on a Pay-What-You-Want basis). The later The Complete Vivimancer greatly expands on vivimantic magic and is the ideal companion to the new content presented in this book.

This book is published as a free digital file and an at-cost (non-profit) print version.

Nice! I thought you had gone 5e, so I stopped following your blog a while ago. Nice to see you are still making stuff for LL/OSR

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.
