Evil Primer (5E)


An evil 5th Edition OGL supplement for wicked players and vile GMs!

The Book of Exalted Darkness is set in a holy decopunk world as a backdrop for evil adventurers—and comes with a plethora of despicable, nefarious, and wicked mechanics for them to truly spread corruption and malevolence! The Book of Exalted Darkness: Evil Primer is a preview of some of the playtest material for the book, all of which will be refined by backer-feedback and critique. To join the full playtest pledge to the Book of Exalted Darkness Kickstarter before the project ends!


What you’ll find in the Book of Exalted Darkness: Evil Primer:

  • New attributes: Sanctity and Sin, two facets central to the Book of Exalted Darkness through Sin points and the horrific vilespawn template!

  • 7 Inherent Heresies taken by PCs at character creation, their edge against a world predicated to grind them beneath its heel!

  • 4 Evil Backgrounds (foolish spelunker, inaequa technician, murderer, and unholy witness) to give the group a better sense of the world of Askis!

  • The Science and Technology skills for adventurers keen on manipulating machines to malevolent ends!

  • Inaequa Chariots and Inaequa Pistols, the first pieces of decopunk technology that will be included in the Book of Exalted Darkness!

  • A bevy of despicable feats! Deformities like Corpulescent and Malformed Basal Ganglia, Sinful Magic and Sinful Slayer for evil mages and warriors alike!

  • The start of the Evil magic tradition with spells like blood spear, bone spurs, exsanguination, extinguish soul, flay skin, forced hemorrhage, foreboding horror, sanguine razorstorm, and unholy gaze!

  • Vile class options! The Abyssal cleric domain, Feral Barbarian primal path, Gray Knight warlock patron, and Warrior of Dark Chi monastic tradition!

  • Book of Exalted Darkness character sheets!

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.
