The Oracle Issue 15 - CaravanTheme

Just as all characters are better equipped when they have a bag of holding, a potion of healing and a sunrod, a GM is better equipped when supplied with a steady stream of new material and ideas.

And that's what we have for you here.

This month we bring you, in one fully illustrated PDF the following system-neutral Fantasy RPG material:

Contents

  • Game Advice - Caravan Culture - mindset, key individuals, using scouting in your game and wagon types
  • Prophetic Vision - Using divination in your games using prophesy points
  • game Advice - How prophesy can be used to further your game
  • Events - Welcome Feast, The Big Show and The Oracles Tent
  • Advice on ways to use The Big Show in your games
  • 7 Detailed NPCs including a young wanna be half orc acrobat, a dodgy merchant and a missing beast master amongst others
  • 3 New magic items
  • Music and magic - suggestions on creating five different types of bardic rituals
  • Steeds - looking at more than just horses, and five different examples provided
  • 10 Card Tarot - bespoke tarot cards to use in your games with two options for use
  • Gods of the Road - two new deities that your party might meet on the roads
  • Merchants - story hooks relating to merchant caravans and advice on an emergency side quest to keep ready
  • Secret Ways - how caravan travellers might use magic
  • 12 Trinkets and treasure
  • Unexpected - suggestions on an unexpected event to trip up your players
  • Picture Prompt - designed to get you thinking creatively

Our inspiration goes back to the early years of White DwarfDragon and Dungeon Magazines as well as other less well-known titles like Ares and Level-Up.

Why System-Neutral?

Because we personally play multiple games and systems, and so do virtually all the DMs and GMs that we know. By making it system-neutral, we can focus on strong storytelling without getting hung up on the mechanics and conversions across game systems. (You can read this content and use it at the gaming table inside of five minutes.)


And, let's face it – if we featured even just the top three fantasy RPGs, that would leave out a whole bunch of others.

So, we are embracing them all with clever, interesting, story-rich material that people can easily convert to their desired system.

We have been developing our format for over three years, and we are confident that you will find it entertaining and useful, regardless of the fantasy RPG system you use.

Professionally Edited

Our editor is Jane Spencer, a qualified editor and proofreader with over two decades of editing, publishing and literary project management experience. (She's also an RPG gamer and a lovely person!) And last, but not least, we are ably assisted by a number of player testers, content providers and technical advisers.

Modern Format

Created in a modern landscape format making it idea for reading on tablets, laptops and smart phones.

100% Guarantee

We have every confidence that any fantasy RPG fan reading the magazine will find it both entertaining and useful. However, if we've gotten that wrong, if you find that it is neither entertaining nor useful - then we will give you your money back without any fuss, argument or hassle.

You can't say fairer than that can you?

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.
