Petals and Thorns: Heroes of Ramshorn (5e)

Watermarked PDF

A deadly civil war for characters of level 6-8, 5e compatible.

Eastern Vintaria stands on the brink of war. The royalist Order of the Lion and the secessionist Lunatic Court are nearly at blows already, and both are attempting to recruit factions both major and minor to their cause.

Vincent of the wilderness knights in the Order of the Wyrd still believes that preventing the war is not impossible, but it will require swift action and more than a bit of luck to get both the Lions and Lunatics to stand down. His more pragmatic peer in the Wyrd, the werewolf Talon, takes the stance that war is inevitable and the Wyrd must pick a side in order to bring the war to a swift conclusion, that to cling to the dream of peace will only allow the fires of war to burn longer.

Lidia Vlatla of the Vlatla Clan of vampires engages her sire Petre in a deadly game of intrigue as they attempt to secure the Scepter of the Bone Lord, which will allow whoever commands it to build a massive undead army. Petre and Lidia both take a nihilistic view of morality - but when you believe in no morals, what's to stop your own daughter from stabbing you in the back?

Caspar of the Order of the Third Eye has long believed that the knowledge he and his wizardly order accrue would be used for the good of all. That belief is now put to the test by the practical reality of a brewing civil war in which the Order must take sides. If the Third Eye abandons their morals for base political convenience, will Caspar follow them? And if he doesn't, where does he go next?

In addition to the major factions are over a dozen minor factions, from serpent infiltrators seeking a safe place to lay their eggs to goblin rebels seeking to re-establish an independent goblin kingdom long since conquered by the humans and elves of Vintaria, from friendly but gullible hill giants bringing incredible physical prowess to a cynical baronet willing to assassinate her own niece to consolidate power, from mercenaries with hearts of gold to mercenaries who pillage the helpless peasants of the countryside whenever they aren't otherwise employed.

In Strangers in Ramshorn, you decided which of these factions you support. Now you must decide which of these factions you can tolerate. Which ones you're willing to cut deals with, which ones you're willing to give power to, because no one faction can possibly hope to win on their own. Here, in Heroes, you must decide how much you're willing to compromise to preserve the power you're accruing, for if you make no compromises at all, you are doomed to failure.

Product Information
File Size:
7.04 MB
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.
