Fantasy Occupations & Signs

ZIP File

The d20 Modern game introduced an occupation system that adds minor advantages to characters while providing a lot depth. Characters have a background, and they gain benefits from their occupation past making a simple skill roll.

Unfortunately, the occupations are very specific to the modern setting, as most reference skills and feats that don't translate well to the fantasy setting. This profession system is the Fantasy version of the modern occupation system. It fleshes out the things a character's profession skill stands for, and gives the character's life before she became an adventurer a little more meaning.

The occupations presented in this PDF include:

Academic Wizard
City Guard
Hedge Wizard
Hospitality Worker

The second section of this PDF deals with Astrological signs and a way to introduce them into your campaign.

The sign under which a person was born can be very significant. The fact that practically every newspaper published in the US has a horoscope section speaks to the fact that even if we don't believe that the position of the stars effects us, we'd very much like to.

The mechanism for including astrology into your games is simple by design. Two moons, Luna and Io, travel through the thirteen zodiac houses. The moon Luna grants a minor bonus when it is in a character's house, and the moon Io bestows a minor penalty. Several methods of tracking the moon's location during a given adventure are also presented.

This is a logical conversion of the profession system from d20 Modern to d20 fantasy. It's hardly a new thing and goes back to the days of 2nd Edition kits. Your character has a background that provides you with a feat or another ability and several sk [...]

I have encountered quite a few players whom believe that PCs just grown on the PC tree, and fall off whenever a new campaign begins or an old character dies. Some of the ripe ones come equipped with tasty backgrounds of past deeds the PC completed. Th [...]

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.
