A setting for d20 fantasy, inspired by the myths and legends of India.

Long ago in Sahasra, the fabled Land of 1,000 Cities, when a woman's delicate beauty could smite a man's heart on first sight of her, and a man's bravery was judged by the strength of his arm and the devotion of his soul...a party of adventurers set out on a journey that would change their lives.

Immerse yourself in Sahasra, the newest Folkloric setting for d20 fantasy by author Donna K. Fitch. Countless wonders await the brave traveler: the legendary city of Ujjayini, that bustles and thrives alongside the river Shipra; the Monkey City of Kishkindha, hidden in the lush, vine-tangled grotto of Pampa lake; the underground city of Dirindhala, home of the mysterious and proud Rock Nagas; the ruined city of Sisupal, carefully guarded by the Yakshini - fey creatures that revere nature and abhor intruders...

Use the city generation tables to populate your own Sahasran adventure, or walk the pathways expertly built by author Donna K. Fitch. A generous amount of npc's, monsters, and fabulous treasure await your party in this exotic, highly-detailed setting.



One of the objects of pursuit in vidya is the siddhi (?perfection?) or supranormal power. According to The Five-and-Twenty Tales of the Genie, the Eight Siddhis are:

To be minute as an atom, Or enormous as a mountain, Light as air or heavy as rock, To be invisible at will, To have all one's desires fulfilled, To subject others to one's will And to have lordship of the world.

Obviously anyone who possessed all eight of these powers would be mighty indeed! In ancient times, these powers were incorporated into eight artifacts, the location of which have been lost. Only the vetala know where they currently rest, and they do not always give out their secrets liberally?or without cost. The artifacts are the Bracer of the Mountains; the Breastplate of Fulfillment; the Crown of Lordship; the Neckchain of Mastery; Puspaka, the Vessel of the Clouds; the Ring of Dragon Size; the Ring of Flea Size; and the Sash of Invisibility.

On page 5:14, I think there is supposed to be two different tables for creating settlement leaders, but they are both identical (e.g. both tables 5.3 and 5.4 are the Ghandupal River tables rather than the Western Forest/Mt tables). Any chance of this getting fixed?

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.
