Adventurous Archetypes - Tarot Archetypes Volume I


The Turn of a Friendly Card


Great adventurers deserve great options, and the most dangerous quests sometimes require the most specialized of training. The Adventurous Archetypes books each provide a handful of character archetypes tied to a specific theme, inspired by one of Paizo’s adventure paths. Although these archetypes are thematically linked to that campaign, and the topics on which it focuses, they are just as suitable for characters whose players wish to explore those themes as well, or even for GMs who are looking for inspiration and new abilities to give to monsters and NPCs.


This installment of Adventurous Archetypes focuses on the power of the tarot, a deck of cards commonly used for divination. While tarot in the real world is just for fun, in fantasy settings, such means of divination can potentially grant great insight, and of all the tarot cards, the Major Arcana are the most evocative in the imagination, drawing on the power of archetypes such as The Magician, The Lovers, and Death. Now your character has a chance to harness the power of these archetypes, taking on their strengths and talents. This book presents archetypes for two such tarot cards: The Fool, whose luck and sincerity somehow always see him through the dangers his naiveté gets him into, and The Magician, the master of magic and illusion, whose deceptive misdirection allows her to constantly outwit her foes.

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.
