 PDF
Welcome to 100 Oddities for a Wizard's Library, third entry in Skirmisher Publishing's ever-expanding series of curiosities designed to fill the empty corners of your campaign worlds!  Oddities may clutter a shelf or lie forgotten in a corner but are not defined by where they are so much as what they are and are unusual by their very nature. A dead rat in the basement of an abandoned building is not an oddity, but the same dead rat with its eyes sewn shut is. Oddities make you think about why they exist, how they ended up there, even what the hell they are, questions that are key to an engaging and invigorating roleplaying experience.  Oddities are intended to aid GM creativity and turn possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more. The goal of this publication a...

Black Hat Magic
Regular price: $0.99
Bundle price:
 $0.49
Format:
 PDF
Advanced computer and magic users share many traits, including their eccentric natures, propensity to recluse themselves, and shared taste for comfortable clothing. It stands to reason therefore, that if the respective users of these arcane skills share personality traits, that they might use their abilities in similar ways as well. One phenomenon that makes for a fascinating study, but lacks a magical counterpart in any games we are familiar with, is computer malware. This publication explores the various types of malware and, with a little creativity, attempts to describe what the magical varieties might look like, and, finally, provides a “Spell Hacker” prestige class as an example of how to make use of these concepts. ...

Magic of the Old West
Regular price: $0.99
Bundle price:
 $0.49
Format:
 PDF
In the 19th century, the American West was marked by booming technology, polarized political beliefs, territorial skirmishes, racial conflict, Civil War, and continuous expansion. This era also brought to the West an influx of other peoples — along with their religious, spiritual, and magical traditions — adding to the cultures of the indigenous Native Americans ones from Europe, China, Mexico, Central America, and Africa. These disparate influences combined with geographical isolationism and the country’s powerful, nearly raw power to alter many rituals and practices and make them uniquely American. This supplement to the Gold-bestselling Cthulhu Live 3rd Edition live-action role-playing game of Mythos horror introduces eight magic traditions, a new spell for each, ...

Upholding its reputation as a place where people can find beverages from any known land can sometimes be a challenge for the Four Winds Bar and its proprietor, the retired marine Cratinus. Fortunately for him, however, he has managed to establish a mutually profitable relationship with the man known as Nithernos the Ale’er, whose knowledge of beverages and skill with lockpicks and daggers — and access to a very special enchanted item — make him the ideal supplier. “Nithernos the Ale’er” is a fun, self-standing swords-and-sorcery fantasy short story by author John Giddens that takes place in the Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting, a Dark Ages fantasy milieu set in the Mediterranean and the lands surrounding it. A century after the old world was plunged into ...

Regular price: $0.50
Bundle price:

Six Spells: Mythos
Regular price: $0.50
Bundle price:
 $0.29
Format:
 PDF
“Mythos” is a word that evokes a certain ilk of horror that emphasize humanity’s utter isolation and inconsequence in a monstrous, unforgiving universe, in which things do go bump in the night and humans are the food or playthings of terrible entities. Most of those initial stories came directly from author H.P. Lovecraft, but other writers of his era used the Mythos with his permission and put their own stamp on this subgenre of early 20th century horror. Accordingly, the spells that appear here were inspired not just by the tales Lovecraft, but also by the work of Clark Ashton Smith. They touch on the wrongness of reality, on the ability of cultists to bend and warp it, and on humanity’s blindness to these things. This mini-publication contains six Mythos spells — Awaken Ido...

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
June #14
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.
