The Investigator's Companion 5e

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

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

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.

This supplement is an excellent addition to the Whispers in the Dark campaign/rule set. Because Whispers is a class-less system the additional backgrounds and feats in this supplement add much more variety and options to the setting. [...]

I am a huge fan of Whispers in the Dark. This book is a awesome collection of player options for that system, or any other 5e game. the magic system is a wonderful blend of risk/reward and the lack of firebolt and other combat heavy spells is a welcome [...]

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.
