Rod of Wonder


The fabled Rod of Wonder! Tool of wondrous power or infernal trap…

One of the most intriguing magic items ever to cross the pages of tabletop roleplaying is the rod of wonder, which calls forth a new and often amazing (though sometimes disastrous) effect each time it is activated.  The traditional rod of wonder had twenty-two random effects… how about two-hundred and thirty two?  How would your game be affected by such effects as:

  • The aid of an empyrean angel or a pit fiend?
  • Losing a class level, to be replace by that of a different class?
  • The target becoming pregnant?
  • Target and wielder switching bodies?
  • The wielder growing wings of bizarre appearance?

This myriad of effects is not all!  The Rod of Wonder from Purple Duck Games also includes 5 new magic items themed on the rod of wonder, introduces the mercurial Wondrous Society, whose cell-like groups pursue their goals aided by the iconic rod of wonder.  Finally, Rod of Wonder presents the wondrous adept, a 10-level prestige class that focuses on using the rod to wield power in ways other classes could not dream of.

If you like the raw power of chaos and what it can do to your game, get Rod of Wonder from the entropic entities at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

Note: The preview shown is for the secret Monsters of Porphyra Collector's series entry #4/199 which is also included in the download. I'll see what I can do about fixing that tonight. ~ Mark Gedak - Nov 26th.

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.
