CHILDREN OF MELIKAPHKAZ

Monster of the Month #9 — September 2020

This month's issue of Monster of the Month previews material from a forthcoming work for the Jonstown Compendium, Melikaphkaz: the O-God of Traps. Melikaphkaz is a Darkness god worshiped by those who build traps and defenses to create shelter in a hostile world.

Within this supplement is contained:

  • A short-form cult dedicated to the titular deity (including two new Rune spells) suitable for adventurers and antagonists alike.
  • Three monsters for the gamemaster's use: treasure-possessing bargouns, enslaved dwarven ghosts (the cult's Spirit of Reprisal) and dreadful demons, the sons of Melikaphkaz and his immortal troll wife.
  • Further rules are included for using these creatures as cult spirits—in particular when bonding with a bargoun or darkness elemental (found in the Glorantha Bestiary) as an allied spirit.

May the Sheltering Dark protect you all!

About this Series: Monster of the Month is a series of new bestiary entries for Chaosium's RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha. In addition to statblocks and behavior, most entries will include supplemental detail and advice for gamemasters and/or new adventurer options for players.

Format
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.
