Tales from the Lusty Minotaur Zine

Tales from the Lusty Minotaur Zine


Ever since a band of hobbits teamed up with a grungy weirdo in the Prancing Pony, taverns have been a staple of fantasy fiction. The Silver Eel, The Vulgar Unicorn, The Inn of the Last Home, and countless other fine establishments give our favorite fantasy heroes a place to meet like-minded companions, get adventure leads from that old guy with the eye patch, and enjoy a warm meal and a cold brew in between dungeons. Tales from the Lusty Minotaur continues this proud tradition.

The Lusty Minotaur is a huge, centuries-old tavern that you can drop into any city in your fantasy campaign. The Minotaur serves the standard tavern role of giving RPG characters a place to form a party, hear rumors, and hang out, but is also filled with colorful characters and strange goings-on that can be used as a springboard for adventures that the PCs can enjoy without even having to settle their bar tab. The zine includes:
A map of the Lusty Minotaur and descriptions of its history, facilities, and services.
Character descriptions and stats for Minotaur staff and regulars.
Rules for Fate’s Hand, a tarot-based card game that’s sort of like playing poker with a Deck of Many Things.
Information about soulfaring to other planes of existence.
Story hooks, rumors, and other adventure fodder.
Random tables, because who doesn’t love random tables?

Tales from the Lusty Minotaur is designed to be as system agnostic as possible so you can use it with any game. Where stats are required, it uses the QAGS Second Edition (Q2E) game system. QAGS is a simple rules set with a d20 core mechanic, so conversion to other systems is quick and painless.

Tales from the Lusty Minotaur is written by Steve Johnson (QAGS Second Edition, Hobomancer) and features art by Joshua LH Burnett (Draugr & Draculas, Leopard Women of Venus), Leighton Connor (Laser Brigade, QAGS Second Edition), James Hornsby (Botched Spot, I Psi), Jeffrey Johnson (Hobomancer, Fratboys Vs.), and Juan Navarro (Tommy, Zombie Years).

Product Information
File Size:
8.01 MB
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.
