Signs & Portents - Issue 5

Watermarked PDF

Christmas is coming and so is Issue 5 of Signs & Portents! Heaving with articles on how to wrap presents, what really goes best with roast turkey, a consumer’s guide to party lights… oh, fair enough, we made this bit up. This is what you really get:

They Call Me Mister – The last in our current series on major Babylon 5 characters sees Lizard go to the dark side in the company of the enigmatic Mr Morden. He’s the sort of guy who will buy you a dozen drinks and end up owning your soul. Better read what you can do to avoid such a fate.

Datafile: 2089 – Cryotech Suppressor – Another innovative new piece of equipment or a dangerous death trap that shouldn’t be within 20 metres of a Mek? You get to decide.

Blood of the Earth – Blood Magic is one of the most popular of our Encyclopaedia Arcane series – after all, there’s nothing like a spot of gore. In response to many requests, S&P presents three new prestige classes, the Blood Gardener, the Mistress of the Bloody Moon and the Blood Cult Initiate, three thoroughly unpleasant paths your blood mages can now follow. But that’s not all! We also have Blood Rites, a new system of drawing power from the very earth itself.

Ultimate Gameplay – Derro – Not all the little folks are cute and cuddly. Don’t go down to the Underdark alone – you have been warned.

Get It Right, Punk! – Mega-City One roleplaying doesn’t just mean hanging around with Dredd and his mates. There’s a whole wide city out there waiting to get ripped off. All you need is a start in the business.

Power Class: Charismatic – We liked the idea of Power Classes so much that we hijacked the idea for S&P. The Charismatic is the first of these; living manifestations of deities, it’s time to kick clerics into touch and commune with your god on a one-to-one basis.

Conan the Roleplaying Game – Not much longer to wait now! If you can’t wait, though, why not check out the weapons and feats that are going to make combat in Hyboria a unique experience.

Show Me The Money – If you are a mercenary in the world of Armageddon: 2089, then what you need more than anything else are clients. Lots of them, with enough money to keep your crew in missiles and bullets. Mongoose feature writer Alejandro Melchor has taken time out to provide a full system for those off-the-battlefield meetings which make all the difference on it.

Caves of the Magi – Not every scenario needs to be an epic in its own right. Sometimes what you need is an insert between adventures, and this is it! Take a little field trip down to the local caves and meet the inhabitants.

Jonny Nexus – Our regular columnist handles the arduous task of actually acknowledging the festive season. Join him as he provides advice on how and where to ambush the Christmas sleigh; after all, there’s the security features to consider, plus all Santa’s special feats. This is no easy knock-off.

Plus there are the usual features, more Tales from Mongoose Hall, Inside the Chainmail Bra and much, much more.

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.
