The Blood and Portents Handbook

Watermarked PDF

The Blood and Portents Handbook is a collection of archetypes, class options, talents, and more for expanding the Blood sphere and giving other thematic options for characters ranging from crafters of magical toys, masters of winter magic, and more.

Introduced in this book are new Blood sphere powers in the form of Blood Arts, which allow the caster to form blades from their own blood, binding a target in chains forged from their own blood, and other thematic and powerful options, as well as new talents in the Dark, Destruction, Divination, Fate, and Telekinesis spheres.

Also included are:

  • Three new archetypes for armorist, commander, and incanter
  • 11 new class features, including arcanist exploits, a new reaper cult, and witch hexes 
  • 18 new feats, including 10 champion feats which bring together synergies for might and power for interesting and powerful new synergies.

This handbook is designed to be used as a companion book with the updated Spheres of Power system of magic materials found in Ultimate Spheres of Power, as well as materials from Spheres of Might, Champions of the Spheres, and other Drop Dead Studio supplement products.

Do you want more options / talents for the Blood sphere? Do you want to make a sword or a gun out of your own blood? Do you like some more talents for the Fate sphere? How about some really cool class Archetypes? This is a fantastic handbook with all [...]

The Bloodbinder is a fantastic archetype, very well done. The Blood Art talents and expanded Blood sphere talents and abilities compliment the sphere extremely well and open the doors for some deviously interesting characters. I am definitely looking [...]

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.
