Temples, Cults and Apostates

Adding Faith to Fantasy Campaigns

Religion is a constant source of conflict. Why not use it more prominently in your fantasy gaming? Often the answer is another question, How?

The priestly caste must be more than a static list of gods and some strange iconography. Sure, you can have lengthy interludes involving philosophical debate, bring the party to a fervor, even indulge in some communal fratricide. If you’re looking for an academic study of comparative religion, there are better sources than this pamphlet. We need game rules; we need just the Quick and Dirty results.

This is not a Gods and Demons primer. You’re clever enough to create exotic names for the higher order. We’re not going to describe the divine in terms of hps and magic powers. This booklet is going to show you how to organize your campaign religions and when to bring the whole state to chaos. Herein is a set of guidelines for quickly generating religious faiths and cults, populate the temples with denizens and let your players enter to run amok.

When that gets old there’s a second section on letting the players have a go at creating their own fantasy religious movement and raising an initial cult to a world recognized faith.

If you enjoyed Fantasy Baronial Lifestyles, you’re in for another treat.

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.
