    - Madeline Mckee created an oaken cudgel that can heal as effectively as it kills.
    - Sam Morehouse wrote up an intimidating spiked club.
    - John Gregory wrote about a lantern shield that protects from fire.
    - Ash McAllan unearthed a gravedigger’s spade that severs the soul.
    - Shoe Skogen unveiled a tiny clockwork rat that can deliver messages.
    - Mahar Mangahas created a tourmaline sword that grants unicorn blessings.
  • Rules for Tempered Armor by Dave Cox.
  • Tempered Trinkets, Coins, and Pans.
  • Different templates for making your own Regrets.
  • and more!

Loot with potential. An easy replacement for “+1 magic swords” that not only includes history and flavor but also side-quests and hidden powers.

An alternate route of advancement for players. As players invest in their Tempered items and fulfill Regrets, they unlock the Slots contained within.

Customized development. Any piece of metal can become tempered. Use the rules in this book to help them make their own magic weapons and armor.

Rogue-like elements. The life of an adventurer is dangerous; it could end at any moment. When a player character dies, a piece of themselves is stored in their Tempered item; ready to be unlocked by a future character.

Passive world-building. A Tempered item encourages players to engage with the past and think about how people in this world lived. It’s easy to sprinkle your own world-building into these Tempered Items.

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.
