The Olympians (4th edition)

Watermarked PDF

The Olympians is a complete history of the Olympian gods, from their extra-dimensional origins to their re-emergence on twentieth century Earth. Also Included is a god template and full write-ups (which include Powers, Characteristics, Disadvantages, background, tactics, and current activities) for each major god. Less important gods receive shorter write-ups, and some are merely described. Although this organization book is designed to introduce the gods of ancient Greek mythology into a GM's campaign, it can be used in a number of different ways. While the GM can choose to accept the book as it's written, taking it in its entirety, he might merely allow certain aspects, perhaps constraining the gods to Olympus. Another interesting possibility is a campaign with player-controlled gods. The gods in this book are extremely powerful; any single god is a match for several standard superheroes. This conforms to the treatment of the gods in comic books; any time that the gods are involved in an adventure the stakes are presumably high.

NOTE TO CUSTOMER: In our copy of The Olympians the title page as well as pages 4,5, 8, 41 and 45 were blank. Not missing, but blank! We are attempting to find out if this is a fluke, or the whole print run is this way.

NOTE TO CUSTOMER #2: Hurrah! A complete, perfected file ( Champions4E-Olympians-20170511-ocr.pdf ) with OCR applied to the added pages (8.7MB) is now attached to this download.

Scanned image
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.
