A holy warrior fighting back infernal beasts on the precipice of a fiery pit. Cloaked figures chanting an incantation to bring forth a nameless beast. A man standing at a crossroads bartering with a demonic temptress for fame and fortune; the price of which is his very soul.

Advisers to kings and queens, dictators and presidents, whispering lies at the behest of their demon lords with the fate of nations resting on whether or not the advice is heeded. A scientist examining a strange artifact found on a distant planet that, unbeknownst to him, opens a mysterious gate to a nightmarish dimension when a button is pushed.

These are just a sampling of the myriad images which come to mind when we think of Hell. Codex Infernus: The Savage Guide to Hell, brings those images to life and shows you how to plug them into your games, regardless of what genre you love to play!

In this book you'll find:

  • Ready-to-play character archetypes for fantasy and modern games.
  • New Fantasy races
  • A new Demonic race: Cambion
  • New Edges and Arcane Backgrounds
  • Guidelines for creating Angelic, Demonic, and Hell-forged weapons
  • Guidelines for blessing items—even if you don’t have an Arcane Background!
  • An immersive Fantasy campaign setting
  • A detailed section on Hell itself
  • Guidelines for creating cults
  • A brief look at Hell in various cultures stemming back to ancient Mesopotamia!
  • Rules for demonic pacts, demonic possession, and an optional corruption system
  • Hellish hazards!
  • A gazetteer filled with demons you can use in your games!

Hi there. I just downloaded it, and opened the file here on my computer, and it's working fine. I'm not sure what to tell you. Try contacting customer service, and see if they can't help you on their end.

I don't know how things work on your end, whether you re-uploaded it or if you downloading it somehow fixed it, but I tried it again and thankfully it works now.

Yes, sir, but I'm not sure exactly when. I'm currently working on an offset version which will go into stores.

If I buy the pdf now, will there be a discount for the PoD-Version later?

Once it goes into POD, I'll send out a discount coupon to customers.

FYI, the full size preview is broken. Says it is not a .pdf format or is corrupt. On double checking, the small preview doesn't work either.

it's an issue with the layered PDF. The PDF itself is fine. I've never had much luck with the previews rendering right for my products.

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.
