Porphyra Roleplaying Game

Suggested Price $1.00

In June of 2015, Purple Duck Games published Drow of Porphyra - Karza, Children of the Loomqueen by Patricia Willenborg without the Pathfinder Compatibility License. This products explore some mature themes that were appropriate for the content of the product and for our Lands of Porphyra Campaign Setting but not for the compatibility license.

As 2015 progressed, we released more supplements using open game content from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game but abandoned our claims of official compatibility as we actively worked to change some minor aspects of the game both in our products and at my gaming table. Now with the recent announcement of what is generally being referred to as Pathfinder 2.0, we have decided to formalize our work as the Porphyra Roleplaying Game.

This will not be a quick process, nor will it be a clean process but at the end of it, we hope to produce a game that can be played for years to come at your table and at ours. There are probably already a ton of copy/paste errors I need to deal. We are a long way away from a document that is playable.

I received a notification that there was an update, but I already have version 13. Should there be a version 14? Or did version 13 get updated to a new version 13 (effectively making it version 13.1)?

Hi Timothy, it should be v14 but I forgot to number it right. So let's say this is 13.1.

Not a this time. Currently, the damage dealing is handled by the Fighter and the tanking is handled by the Stalwart Defender.

The unchained barbarian is my favorite version of the barbarian so far and will probably be directly uploaded to the Porphyra Rpg wiki.

Essentially, my pathfinder-based player's handbook. So a variant core rulebook is absolutely fair.

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.
