Monoliths of Ancient Power

Ancient Idols provides a treasure trove of knowledge for incorporating the monuments and monoliths of elder civilizations into your Pathfinder campaign. Objects of cultic worship, idols draw power from adoration and sacrifice, but also provide great power to those studied in the ancient mysteries or willing to sacrifice soul and sanity! Within you’ll find tons of new rules for both animated and inanimate idols and their sacrifices and holy days, with sample idols from tiny statuettes to towering colossi, ranging from CR &frac;12; to 20. You’ll also find rules for integrating idols and monoliths with the spirit world and networks of eldritch energies bounded in ley lines, as well as fantastic new character options like the idol champion, qahin, and idolater for devotees of these elder idols, whether heroic PCs or devious cult master NPCs. The ruined wonders of fallen empires surround you, but with Ancient Idols you can bring them to glorious life in your campaign! Grab this 32-page Pathfinder accessory today and Make Your Game Legendary!

I don't get something.. A lone madman can "grow" an idol to max stats (INT, WIS, CHA = 20) in less than two years, with minimum effort. Is it designed this way or I missed something ? [ Lone worshiper, EGO+1, so, EGO=6, thus, monthly limit to sacrifices is 6x500 = 3000gp. To get +2 to int, wis, cha, you need 10 000gp, so a little more than 3 months, let's say 4 month. Do it 5 times to earn +10 to int, wis, cha, so 4 month x 5 = 20 months, and the idol is "full". What is 3000gp a month ? Sacrifying 12 chicken... So, a lone evil madman can sacrifice only 12 chicken a month during 1year and 8 months (rounded up, and not even counting holy days..) to create an all powerful idol...

It's in the queue, but still a fair amount of things in front of it. Probably will be available for 5E early next year.

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.
