1E Heroic Abilities allows characters of any class to increase prime requisite ability scores. This 6 page supplement for OSRIC™ and other 1E games adapts the concept of ability score increases and applies them in a manner consistent with the spirit of First Edition rules.

Learn how your 1E character can increase certain ability scores by class. Discover the benefits of exceptional scores other than "percentile Strength" and use Heroic Effort to increase abilities at critical times!

But don't worry; these rules support the spirit of the old school! Chance plays a part and the supplement avoids easily stackable bonuses that (from a 1E perspective) could easily spin out of control.

1E Heroic Abilities is part of Mob United Media's Olde School Arcana line. These supplements support your 1E or OSRIC™ game with original rules and ideas.

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.
