CASTLE OLDSKULL - Dungeon Delver Enhancer (Character Creator)


A decades-long labor of love:

The ultimate old school character book.

Your game, filled to the brim with every

Pulp Swords and Sorcery detail imaginable,

Will never be the same.

Do your player characters ever seem less like heroes, and more like cardboard cutouts?  Do your campaign’s nefarious arch-villains fail to inspire fear, or even interest?  Do you need help with your next story hook or adventure campaign, creating compelling protagonists and enemies that your players or readers will never forget?  Look no further.

The DUNGEON DELVER ENHANCER is specifically designed to enrich every aspect of character design, turning stereotypes into unique and engaging personas.  You can design thousands or even millions of characters with this system, and no two will ever be alike.  Best of all, with repeated use you can create fully detailed individuals ready for role-playing or story-telling in just 15 to 30 minutes.  Picking out a detail to work on — a name, a description, a character theme, likes and dislikes — will take your 2 minutes or less.

The elaborate systems in this book are both isolated and interlocked, which means that you can use all of them without creating internal conflicts.  Or, you can pick and choose the systems that help you the most, turning your least favorite aspects of character creation into the most enjoyable ones.

The vast array of character customization systems featured in this book includes:  given names; family names; nicknames and epithets; sub-class themes and alternate level titles; alternate names for multi-class combinations; attribute descriptors; initial spell repertoires; spell caster themes; racial lore for demi-humans; Useful Secondary Skills; handedness determination; bardic sub-themes; specialized thieving talents; fighting styles and weapon preferences; known languages; background themes; racial clan ancestry; famous ancestors; blazons and coats of arms; Social Standing; starting wealth; druidic clan backgrounds and spirit companions; enchanted familiars; and barbarian and orcish tribal themes.

This book also includes full systems for determination of appearance, eye color, hair color, skin color, unusual physical traits, and hundreds of different personality quirks and behaviors.  A bonus system even allows you to create tens of thousands of names for parties, fellowships and mercenary companies, with just two quick die rolls.

The DUNGEON DELVER ENHANCER is brought to you by Kent David Kelly of Wonderland Imprints, a role-player and Game Master with over 35 years of play experience.  Best of all, if there are any other materials you would like to see relating to world or dungeon design, feel free to contact the author.  I create the supplements that Game Masters want.  Many more CASTLE OLDSKULL supplements are being prepared specifically to support the players, initiates and Game Masters of the Old School Revival (OSR).  This book is your gateway to the realms of sword and sorcery.  Join us for the adventure!

(A complete reference work designed to supplement existing pen-and-paper Fantasy Role-Playing Games.  One of the most elaborate RPG character design books ever devised, with over 200 section topics, nearly 200 tables, 92,700 words, over 570 pages.  Just one of the proud creations available now from Wonderland Imprints — Only the Finest Works of Fantasy.)

If ever you wanted to REALLY detail out your fantasy genre PC, this is a good resource to do it with.
I was rather surprised at the volume of details available.

It'd be great if we had a form fillable Enhancer Sheets like the one you suggest in the PDF document, perhaps as an editable .docx available for download to the buyers, otherwise the content of the book seems to be pretty good.

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.
