Raven of the Scythe is a fantasy RPG that brings you into a world of grim possibilities.  It is a world darker than some, but never sacrifices the joy and excitement of classic fantasy role-playing. 

* Fast and easy play using 2d10 system.

* Classless system allows you to build the character you want to play with options available to recreate fantasy archetypes such as Melee fighter, archer, wizard, thief, priest, bard, craftsman, scholar, healer, beastmaster, and more; or build your own unique playstyle based on the choices you make for your character using a combination of attribute, skills, and favors.   

* Streamlined character creation rules allow you to get into play quickly, while still allowing for a huge variety of character types right out of the gate. 

* Modular system allows for both rules light characters with little more than their base stats and highly crunchy characters with a plethora of unique talents and abilities to both contribute at the same table. 

* “Dim-Dark” tone forces players to face exhaustion, lasting injuries, and the constant threat of death, without devolving into depictions of bloody disembowelments or epic gore. 

* Low magic setting / high magic possibilities allows the party to delve into a world of darkness and superstition regarding arcane forces, and to also master those same forces if they so choose.

* Complete Role Playing Experience including rules for; combat, magic, bardic abilities, animal companions, multiple weapons-based fighting styles, priestly powers, item crafting, alchemy, magic items, treasure, and more.   

* Book of Encounters provides more than 200 monsters, creatures, and supernatural foes to give any party a variety of challenging encounters.

Is the adventure in this starter set identical to or different from the seperately sold "Adventure's in Midshire?"

Hi, and thanks for asking.
This is an abbreviated version. Some parts were left out, if they involved stuff not included in the starter set.

The starter set includes the village and 2 adventures: "Rats in the Cellar" and "Trail of the Basilisk'.

The full adventure includes these and "Carver Cavern" and "Haunting of Ormyre Manor".

Product Information
File Size:
10.72 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.
