The Reaper; OR How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Just Play Everything

ADD TO WISHLIST >

The earliest form of Necromancy refuses to die.

 

Discarded scraps of souls have been piling up in heaps since the dawn of time, and, long before magic was codified in the way we understand it today, some of the first true necromancers just so happened to notice that they were up to their knees in these catatonic bits and pieces of what used to be people like them. Calling themselves reapers, these necromancers found ways to coax scraps of soul back together, to give lost souls a new lease on life, and to grant these aggregate beings a means of interacting with the world once more. Necromancy, and the rest of magic, has since moved on from what is now considered a product of the formative, dark age of magic, but certain circles still remember its power, and with every advance the rest of the world makes, the reaper gains a new tool.

We've all been there. You play a rogue for a few sessions, then the rogue gets boring, and you want to try a new character, but the narrative demands that you remain what you are and now you've gone and made friction in the game group. For all those suffering altaholics out there, Interjection Games is proud to present the reaper, a blank slate base class with versatility at its core. By herself, a reaper is more-or-less a commoner, but she slowly nurtures a group of soulsown, each of which allows her to act like a totally different class when the two of them are bound together. Trying another character is just a binary swap away!

 

Note: The combination of tricks from a wide variety of base classes makes classes on the lower end of the power spectrum, such as rogue, monk (sans archetypes), and fighter more-or-less totally obsolete with a reaper in play. This does not make the reaper itself overpowered− the class is still strictly less powerful than any full caster on the books and fits somewhere around the power level of a well-built bard− but rather highlights some of the issues inherent in the original source material when it was penned a decade-and-a-half ago. Still, the reaper has an enormous footprint and the average power level of games using it will probably increase now that the various low-tier "trap" classes have been ousted.

 

Product Features

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.
