Black Pudding #4

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

The die hits the table... a 1! A sound emanates from 2d6 x 10 feet down the dungeon corridor. What wandering, shlorping oozoid is this? It's a new Black Pudding. Get your torches ready.

In this issue you get new classes, a double helping of Meatshields, and a 15 page OSR play book, complete with the basic classes, rules, and Black Pudding flavor to enhance or replace your current play book. For use with dice of funny sides. Inspired by games such as Labyrinth Lord, The Black Hack, and Swords & Wizardry White Box.

Love this issue but confused somewhat on the thief. Does the thief automatically have access to all normal thief skills like picking locks and finding traps at level 1? And when stacking does he get the +1 AND the special benefit if any? Or do you have to pick one or the other? And I assume you can pick any specialty up to 3 times? So backstab stacked 3 times would be x5 damage for example?

Yes that's pretty much it. You would not use any thief class mechanics outside what's on the page. So if you don't take picking pockets as one of your skills then you're not particularly good at it, for example.

I love these, probably my favorite zine and #4 was awesome. I wish it included the cleric though!

This is fantastic! I bought this and read it, then went back and bought 1-3! I love the rules! I love the classes! I love the adventures! And I love the art! (That's a lot of love I know)
I'm using this to build a Sword & Planet/ Sword vs Sorcery campaign and hope to see more of this good stuff to come!

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.
