SWORD & SORCERY

Expanding on the material presented in By This Axe I Hack, the By This Axe Companion includes 12 new Character Classes (4 warriors, 4 rogues, and 4 magicians), 6 new backgrounds for each, 72 new spells designed for the sword and sorcery genre, and 26 new special features to make your Character unique, plus a host of new rules and options, including new combat rules, weapon rules, wealth rules, wilderness rules, runeblade powers, and a collection of relics and artifacts for GMs who want to incorporate magic items into their games.

Although designed primary to supplement By This Axe I Hack and other roleplaying games based on the Black Hack, most of the material in this book is relatively OSR compatible and should be easy to modify for use with any version of the world’s most popular fantasy roleplaying game.

Based on David Black’s game-changing The Black Hack, By This Axe I Hack takes its cues from Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian and Kull of Atlantis, Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor Smith’s Red Sonja, Michael Moorcock’s Elric of Melnibone, and Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.

THIS PRODUCT LISTING INCLUDES THE WHITE COVER PRINT-ON-DEMAND VERSION OF THE BY THIS AXE COMPANION! 

THE BLACK COVER PRINT-ON-DEMAND VERSION OF THE BY THIS AXE COMPANION MAY BE FOUND HERE.

PURCHASER
I have to say I am loving this system. I am incorporating some elements from other games, but for the most part this was exactly what I was looking for. (Something that captured Sword & Sorcery feeling.) I have introduced some things from Barbaric! game, Savage Swords & Sinister Spells (namely character background and adventure/artifact generators), and some others, but the base of it is this system as written as it is very adaptable to most ideas and situations. I was wondering if any of the developers were working on anything more for this? (A fleshed out campaign setting, spell cards, or any additional companion pieces)

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.
