Non-Humans for The Sword of Cepheus

Watermarked PDF

The Sword of Cepheus assumes an anthropocentric world; however, in many sword & sorcery, sword & planet, and fantasy settings, humanity is not alone. Be that lizardfolk lurking in primordial swamps, undead heroes and villains transcending death, or dwarves delving deep into the earth. Some are allies, some are enemies, and yet others are the heroes of the story itself.

Non-Humans is a supplement for The Sword of Cepheus detailing twelve non-human species, complete with special abilities and full character generation rules. Here you will find anything from reptilian and insectoid humanoids, through the “demihumans” of traditional fantasy role-playing, to draconids to undead revenants. For each, we present abilities, career tables, mishap tables, and even tables for use in expanded character generation– one career per species, useful whether you intend to present these species as player character options or generate varied and interesting non-human NPCs.

We present here twelve non-human species: antediluvians, draconids, dwarves, elves, geckofolk, gnomes, goblins, halflings, insectoids, lizardfolk, revenants, and trolls, with their full statistics and character generation information.

This is not a stand-alone book. To use this sourcebook, you require a copy of The Sword of Cepheus.

Non-Humans also has excellent compatibility with Cepheus Light, and good compatibility with the Cepheus Engine Standard Reference Document (SRD) and other OGL 2d6 games.

Hi there, I was wondering if you might update this to include orcs at some point in the future?

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.
