Of Beasts Brave and True

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

This short supplement is for use with The Hero’s Journey, Second Edition and introduces three new Lineages that allow players to take up the mantle of sentient animal, similar to the Rover Lineage found in The Hero’s Companion. Here, you will find rules to play stalwart horses, mischievous cats, and inquisitive birds, known respectively as the Destrier, the Prowler, and the Windkin. But affection for our furry and feathered friends doesn’t end there! You’ll also find new heirlooms tied to these Lineages, as well as a collection of new beasts to add to your  menagerie. There’s even expanded occupations for more traditional two-legged heroes!

Though this product makes reference to a few rules introduced in The Hero’s Companion, it is not necessary to own that product to make use of this book.

Is the Pugilist (variant swordsman) mentioned in this supplement's appendix the same as the one in the Hero's Companion?

Yes it is! It's reprinted in Of Beasts Brave and True so that someone who owns this book but not the Hero's Companion can still get the most out of the product.

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.
