Stupid Fantasy Laws, Vol. 3

ZIP File
While murder, rape, exploitation, theft, and abuse are certainly novel selections for crimes appropriately punished these infractions against society are rather? well, terribly bland and a bit too straight to the point. So straight to the point, in fact, that any true, red blooded village wracked with superstitious idealizations should have little to fear from the threat of such obvious crimes. Real villages and communities need crimes rooted from pathetic inner fears. Real villages need stupid, oppressive laws.
Based on both the superstitions of the past and the inactive laws still written on the books throughout the real world comes Stupid Fantasy Laws, Volume 3. In this role playing product you will find a dozen different laws that are based on the erratic judgment of rulers, the irrational fears of villagers, oppressive social customs, and the unusual outcomes of very seldom occurring situations. From the tragic deaths caused by a law banning births during a blue moon to the punishments of being caught discussing various elements of the supernatural there are a dozen laws in this volume of Stupid Fantasy Laws designed to cause local villagers and adventuring characters alike a considerable amount of trouble, grief, and hardship. So much trouble, grief, and hardship, in fact, that it is liable to keep the adventurers from wandering into a nearby village or town for weeks to come.

Haven't Seen Enough Yet? Take A Look At A Sample Law Below:
Impersonating A Blind Beggar:
It is unlawful for an individual of substantial vision to be caught impersonating the role of a blind individual, particularly when such a role is used for the purposes of begging or otherwise receiving coinage or material possessions through the pity of others.
Punishment: Should someone of sight be caught impersonating a blind individual then the guilty party shall have their eyes plucked by an authorized torturer. The torturer shall then stuff burning coals into the empty sockets before sewing the wounds shut. The guilty party or their family shall also be responsible for paying the torturer an amount no less than 1 gold coin for the torturer's time and trouble. Should the guilty individual or family members be unable to pay then the guilty party shall be stripped of all clothing and carried possessions as a means of proper payment, regardless of the total value of such possessions.
Probable Cause: This law was designed to prevent loafers and petty thieves from exploiting the unfavorable situations of truly disabled beggars.

This is the third book in the series Stupid Fantasy Laws. It is about laws that some rulers enact to keep their subjects in line. These are the laws that caused towns to become chartered under kings. Some of the laws in this book are; Birth on a Blu [...]

One of many generic fantasy supplements, these are darn good bargains. Lots of quick-use ideas are packed into small space, with no illustrations to undercut the page-count. Fun, cheap, and of good general use!<br><br><b>QUALITY< [...]

Just like the first two volumes, these will aid a DM in coming up with ways to truly make their players think before they do something. After all who wants to be on the wrong end of a law they didn't know about? Wait a sec. That sounds like some sta [...]

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.
