Stingers & Spores: The Leaping Jaws


The two prosperous villages of Brambleshade and Bitterroot have been completely wiped out! Who is to blame? Who could be next?

Twitchy Butcher Studios is proud to present Stingers & Spores, a dark fantasy romp through the Insect Kingdoms, a harsh land filled with tiny six-legged denizens, exotic cultures beneath every log, and death around every corner. 

Powered by the Savage Worlds system, this JumpStart is an introduction to life in the Insect Kingdoms, complete with:

  • Six new playable races, from the armored beetle and imposing hornet, to the ravenous mantis and spindly stick bug 
  • Three weird and silly new Hindrances for insect characters
  • Three new Arcane Backgrounds, to give bug characters a dose of magical power
  • A 13 page adventure (4-6 hours of play time) that puts players in the middle of the wondrous but unforgiving world of insects
  • Five brand new allies and enemies
  • Four new Wild Card NPCs, including two formidable enemies, one vicious monster, and an exotic beast ally for the players to befriend
  • Six pregenerated insect characters in traditional fantasy roles: a barbarian, bug-at-arms, cleric, monk, ranger, and wizard
  • A detailed character sheet containing all the information a player needs to remember, plus an optional third page for Arcane Background information
  • A map of Lady Raphida's Territory, in both a full color and printer-friendly version

Do you have what it takes to survive the wilds when you are half an inch tall? Or will you share the same fate as the dozens of bugs who vanished before you?

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.
