The Investigator's Companion 5e

Watermarked PDF

When facing the horrors of the dark, it's good to have a reliable companion...

This essential player aid provides a plethora of new options for Whispers in the Dark and other 5e-based games. Within this book, you will find:

  • New feats
  • New backgrounds
  • A mythos-inspired magic system and 18 spells
  • New optional rules

Combine backgrounds and feats to quickly bring your character to life. Perhaps you are a sailor with a rapier wit, a writer who is a gun enthusiast, or a priest who is a neophyte magician! Although aimed at horror roleplaying, these options can be easily ported to your other 5e-based games as well.    

The Investigator's Companion for Whispers in the Dark 5e... the rules you already know for an experience you'll never forget!

Hello! Will there be guidelines to create additional Occupations in the (forthcoming) core book? For example, I'd love to play a librarian in this game. I can probably use the existing Occupations to extrapolate the details of creating a librarian Occupation, but some guidelines spelled out in the core book on the how-to of creating Occupations would be most welcome. Thanks!

That's a good idea - I'll discuss it with Matt

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.
