Trinkets - Books

Books regularly show up in dungeons, whether they're on the shelves of a vast library, locked in a secret compartment inside an old desk, or stuffed into the pack of that dead adventurer who was kind enough to trigger all the traps so you didn't have to.

GMs often struggle to come up with new and interesting ways to make books interesting, falling back on "it's just a book". We aim to fix that. Trinkets - Books is intended to inject more detailed descriptions, variety and flavour into your RPG worlds. The tables you'll find inside this book are system-agnostic, but work most easily in a fantasy setting.

Inside this download you will find:

  • tables for generating new and unique books that your players will treasure
  • more unusual types of written records from primitive carvings through to ornate and mysterious tomes
  • over 100 pre-built ideas for books ready to drop straight into your game
  • adventure hooks, NPCs, and new locations to help flesh out the books in your world
Note: This is a re-release of the Copper bestseller Bags of Flavour: Trinkets by Dwarves in a Trenchcoat (Matt Sanders) that contains some minor updates and a reformatted layout.

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.
