Crimson Dragon Slayer D20

Watermarked PDF

If CDS D20 floats your boat, then check out my latest work - Cha'alt (link below).


For months, I've been running D&D 5e on Roll20, playtesting various adventures and locales for my upcoming book Cha'alt.

What I wanted was an extremely rules-lite and old school cheat-sheet for 5th edition that I could show players to give them the basics - how I run virtual O5R games.  Crimson Dragon Slayer D20 is the culmination of that desire.  

You'll get fast and easy to reference bullet-points in order to make running D&D a snap when you only have a couple hours to play and half the table are noobs, distracted, unfamiliar with the OSR style, or maybe English is their second language.

Crimson Dragon Slayer D20 will save all of us precious minutes before every single session, getting players up to speed and ready to immerse themselves in sword and sorcery adventure.

Also, the look and feel of this PDF will set the tone for your game... bloody parchment that gets down to business!  Kort'thalis Publishing is fortunate to have David Guyll doing the layout.

This book is a lean, tight, and interesting take on traditional fantasy roleplaying tune for online or chat play. Cruft gets chopped away with a chainsaw to serve the speed and low-prep necessities of that format. The author dubs this "O5R [...]

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.
