Barbarians of Academia

Watermarked PDF

From the creator of Tales of the Obsidian Idol comes Barbarians of Academia!

Barbarians of Academia is a tabletop roleplaying game for three to six players in which you play a barbarian who has recently traveled through THE SPACE-TIME VORTEX OF AGARTHA, a recent arcane phenomenon that has allowed two-way travel between this world (modern day Earth) and the Lost Continent of Lemuria (A world of myth, magic, and monsters).

Of course, upon entering our world, you have immediately gained employment at the local university’s newly-created College of Lemurian Studies. You’ve acquitted yourself admirably this semester, and the Dean of the college has implied that he will be offering tenure to one member of the faculty. You’ve been invited to a faculty party at the Dean’s house. The Dean has implied that he hasn’t made a final choice concerning who will be receiving tenure, so how you conduct yourself tonight might make all the difference.

Designed for one-shot play and including maps, tokens, and other paraphernalia, Barbarians of Academia promises fun for the entire family. 

Actually, I wouldn't let kids play this. It normalizes a lot of problematic behaviors.

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.
