Storm & Shield 2: Bricks & Mortar

Watermarked PDF

A collection of six, system-neutral planar bases.

The Warlock's Journal Contest is a product of the Gamer Lifestyle community. Each month, this roving contest jumps from one member's blog to another. In April 2014 the wandering Warlock's Journal contest returned to my Tales of a GM blog for a second visit.

The contests on Tales of a GM focus on the organisation Storm & Shield. This is a group which spans the dimensions, with a hand in every world. Elite, well-funded and highly organised, agents of Storm & Shield can be found almost anywhere in the Cosmos.

The Contest: Bricks & Mortar

The first Storm & Shield contest established some of the background to Storm & Shield. Arkmuth's Enemies were acknowledged the Prime version of Storm & Shield. Likewise, Hanna Crip was voted as the Nemesis to the organisation.

The April 2014 version of the Warlock's Journal contest was titled Bricks and Mortar. For this contest, the focus was to be the headquarters of these two opposing factions. What grand edifice was to home to the current descendants of Arkmuth's Enemies? From where did Hanna Crip plot the downfall of Storm and Shield?

Contestants were invited to describe a suitable location for either the Prime or Nemesis groups. Storm & Shield: Bricks & Mortar collects together the six bases submitted to the contest, three in each category. The winners were determined by online polls.

Reprint Note

This pdf was updated in June 2016, and then uploaded to DriveThruRPG, alongside my other Storm & Shield pdfs. This new version has a slightly different layout, and two extra pages. However, I left the bulk of the pdf unchanged. Thus, the history of Storm & Shield makes no reference to the later contests.

This pdf features:

  • The two Winning Entries
  • The four Additional Entries
  • All entries are short, system-neutral essays
  • Bookmarks
  • Art Layer for easy printing
  • Internal pdf hyperlinks
  • 19 pages, including front and back covers

Happy Gaming

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.
