Warriors of the East Arise!

Asian Archetypes: Martial brings you an awesome assortment of new Pathfinder Roleplaying Game class options for characters drawing upon the classic tropes and traditions of Asian fantasy! You'll find a dozen amazing archetypes here, with heavily armored heroes like the dignified imperial unifier, the merciless silversword samurai, and the fearless kaiju hunter ranger. You'll find character options to use knowledge and connections like a weapon in the mandarin investigator alongside rough-housing rascals like the hyakusho fighter scavanging the battlefield just to make ends meet, or the wild and woolly kuma barbarian channeling the raw power of the bear to become a living weapon. Of course, you'll also find warriors of style, stealth, grace, and speed like the deadly contemplative iajutsu adept and the unearthly grace of the sky dancer swashbucklers, the subtle psychic swordplay of the kwa noninja, and the kinetic bladework of the sentai soldier and the matchless prowess of the mercurial duelist vigilantes. Sidebars explore additional feats, magic items, and vigilante talents to enhance these new character options, and you'll also find a fantastic sample hero, Kozue Kaburagi, the Silver Blossom, ready to use as a richly developed NPC to show off some of these new options in play. Whether you're playing a completely Asian campaign or just want to add a dash more Asian spice to the ninjas, samurai, and more in your game, you'll find a wealth of exciting new opportunities in Asian Archetypes: Martial! Grab this 28-page Pathfinder product today and Make Your Game Legendary!

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.
