Villains of Porphyra


A Cavalcade of Inimical Villains to Oppose Heroes of Might!

There is no life in this body. I am nothing, lifeless, soulless, hated and feared. I am dead to all the world - hear me! I am the monster that breathing men would kill. I am Dracula…

            -From Count Dracula, Bram Stoker

The mettle of heroes is tested by the machinations of villains, it is always said, for how can one be heroic with nothing to oppose you?   Evil can prosper as well as good, and find power and desire more, to dominate!  In Aaron Hollingsworth and Justin Sluder’s Villains of Porphyra, published by Purple Duck Games, you will find the statistics and stories of 15 villains of quality- or at least of infamy and notoriety!   Villains like Veshnian the Betrayer, freakish dhsoari servant of the erkunae in the mazelike city of G’sho’laa’n’rr; Korgh the Invincible, warlord of the Jheriak Wastelands; Qippal Rillkeeper, traumatized grippli-frogfolk avenger of all who trespass the Droolian marches! 

Fully equipped, fully motivated, with unique and intriguing builds for maximum opposition of crafty player characters, Villains of Porphyra will be the anchoring supplement for many a campaign of struggle against destructive (or insidious) evil that threatens your campaign worlds.  Get Villains of Porphyra today from the rascally recidivists at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

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.
