A Near Death Experience

You have died. 

No player wants to hear those three dreaded words. However, with this supplement in hand, a crafty game master can present options to a party which may see their companion resurrected...or all of them cursed for eternity. The choice is yours.

A Near Death Experience includes optional game rules for death saves, making the straight d20 roll less luck and more finesse. There is a contest a dead character can compete in to battle their personal reaper, and prevent their soul from being dragged to the underworld. If they are unlucky enough to die, the adventure module Journey to the Underworld is an epic side quest a party can embark upon to rescue their fallen comrade. 

Among other adventures and options, this supplement contains six custom rulesets for dealing with character death including a new adventure module, twenty seven new monsters including dark reflections of the player character classes, and 16 full-color printable maps, which are compatible with roll20. This includes six table-sized large-format printable grid-lined battlemats which can be used in any scenario you can imagine. 

A Near Death Experience will bring you to the threshold of death and beyond.

Roll well, my friends!

The Wizard’s Gauntlet an 8th level adventure full of traps and treasure. In this classic dungeon crawl, the players attempt to unravel the mystery of the death of an eccentric archwizard by braving the gauntlet of trials he left in his lair before his death. Those who succeed will not only uncover the fate of the legendary Archwizard Konstantinos, but will also have control of the powerful weapon which was his life’s work bestowed upon them.

100 Magic Items for the Intrepid Adventurer is a collection of one hundred magic items of various rarity and power level which can be used as a loot table for adventures in any campaign setting. This was a project I completed during the 100 Day Project in 2019, where I drew a different magic item every day for one hundred days. This book is a collection of the items in a format that makes it easy to use as part of your campaign. This supplement is available from as a pdf and also in hard cover or soft cover. Add it to your bookshelf today!

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.
