As the Gods Demand


These hands are called to action, as the gods demand..

Theses hands offer supplication, as the gods demand...

These hands are imbued with fervor, as the gods demand...

These hands shall not waver, as the gods demand.

As the Gods Demand

As the Gods Demand is a deconstruction of divine power and deities for use in the world’s most popular role-playing game.

Rather than treat gods and their power as something a player can earn through leveling up, As the Gods Demand present divine power as something that can be wielded and earned by anyone, provided they take the appropriate steps and sacrifices. Walking the path of a cleric or zealot now requires action and risks consequence, allowing players to make interesting choices if they wish to seek greater power. The many gods within the zine offer all manner of powers and boons if the faithful is willing to undertake tasks to earn their favor.

What's Inside

  • Miracles of the Gods: Player rules for a level-less divine magic system involving FavorMiracles, and Rites
  • A Curious Pantheon: A series of 8 gods for both GM and player to explore; each with their own miracles, rituals, and demands.
  • Death is Not the End: Accessory rules on player death and converting your lost companions into relics to assist in death.
  • Heavenly Servants: Divine-inspired encounters and monsters. 
  • Steps to becoming a deity yourself...

The content in this zine was designed to be mostly system-neutral. While much of it operates with a twenty-sided dice in mind, they can be easily adapted to fit most systems.

Some recommended rule-sets:

  • Dungeon Crawl Classics
  • Knave 
  • Black Hack
  • Old-School Essentials
  • Mork Borg
  • Pathfinder
  • 5e

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.
