You can download the earlier SWD version of this document here for free. This version has been updated to the latest SWADE rules and includes an additional page of material (rules for temptation and influence, and three new example weapons).

Excalibur. Varunastra. Mjölnir. Fragarach. Tyrfing. Stormbringer. Dragnipur. Mythology and fiction are rife with epic tales of legendary weapons imbued with amazing powers.

This small supplement provides a quick and easy system for generating potent magical weapons, using a regular deck of playing cards. It provides a list of thirteen different trappings for each of the five characteristics (Boon, Geas, Nature, Legend, and Destiny), and the abilities of the relic are determined by drawing five cards and cross-referencing them on a table. Drawing multiple cards of the same rank also increases the overall power of the weapon.

Be aware that these weapons are designed to be powerful, comparable with the true relics in the Savage Worlds Fantasy Companion. Eldritch weapons are not mere trinkets to hand out at random during an adventure, they should be a major part of the story, perhaps even the focus of an entire campaign.

This one brings magic to the table. Extremely powerful magic at that. It is inventive and comprehensive. The sheer number of combinations of powers for artifact weapons is staggering. I like that the items come at a cost (if a GM chooses so), which may [...]

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.
