Runic Weapons


Runic Weapons is a short D20 fantasy supplement that provides an alternative way to produce magical items from that given in Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition. With this system, you a +1 weapon need not be BOTH +1 to hit and +1 to damage, but could instead be just +1 to hit or just +1 to damage. It also provides a groundwork for creating upgradable magical weapons and armor, much like some of your favorite CRPGs allow. The system also allows for the creation of quick and dirty one-shot magic weapons and items, as well as treasured herilooms that took generations to carve, adding another depth to the value of magic in your game. Along with the system, this booklet also details roughly 150 magic runes to get you started.

The best way to use this, I think, is in conjunction with Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed; adapt this to the runethane class, and you're good to go! At least, that's what I plan on doing with it. :) [...]

For being marked as a D20 product I would expect some more rules. For instance there are no priceing amounts for the runeic items. The rules for how many runes an item can have and how long they take to etch are very loose and open to much interpretati [...]

I love this work! I only wish the author would expand the system to include all magical items. Much better than the standard D&D system for making magic weapons, I'm just surprised it's so cheap! [...]

This is for someone who wants to try osmetbing different with magic item creation and powers. It can be used as a base on which you can expand with only a little bit of your own imagination. I found it useful for magic in settings which are not your [...]

This is a set of home rules, and it shows. Still they present some very interesting possibilities and for that I'm greatful. I'm always looking for material to take the game to new and interesting places. I'm also supremely unsatisfied with not only [...]

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.
