From the depths of the void and depraved minds.

Tome of Horror and Madness introduces two new ancestries, five new Expert paths, and four new Master paths. All ripped from the inner depths of the void and several broken and depraved minds.

  • The Swarm Infestation: An ancestry that is a swarm of parasites that have taken over any living creature and uses them as their puppet.
  • The Void Parasite: A powerful ancestry where a parasite from the void has taken over a creature that becomes stronger the more corruption they gain.
  • Consumer of Corruption: You feed on the corruption staining souls and use the power to inflict pain on others. An Expert path.
  • The Iron Lord: Iron and steel are your drugs, your skin, your everything! Trading their sanity for metallic modifications, the Iron Lord is a formidable, but often insane Expert path.
  • Mad Piper: You draw on an unknown power to weave music and song more effectively, but with the risk of going mad. An Expert path built around the Song tradition.
  • Symbiotic Infestation: A creature from the void has bonded and formed an uneasy alliance with you, beneficial to both. An Expert path.
  • Truth Seeker: The truth is out there! But should mere mortals really access the truths of the universe? A versatile Expert path that can manifest knowledge, skill, and power by delving into universal truths.
  • Empathic Masochist: Power through pain! The Empathic Masochist is an Expert path that absorbs the pain of others and gives it to their enemies.
  • Esper: There is a limitless psychic power inside you, threatening to consume you and the world! If only your mind could handle such power... A maddeningly powerful Master path.
  • Psycho Killer: You are insane. And not the good, enlightened kind. You thrive while in a psychotic rage and love to murder others. A mentally depraved Master path.
  • Taxidermist: A Master path for those who want to graft body parts from other creatures unto themselves to become stronger, or in their own words, perfect!

Another amazing addition to the SotDL universe! This time, the theme seems to be all about giving more options to the PCs while they progress through their adventures. The new Ancestries are incredibly diverse and multi-faceted, and very uniqu [...]

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.
