Strange Ways: Six Classes and Alternate Magical Systems for Any OSR Adventure Game


Strange Ways offers you six playable classes for OSR adventure games (such as OSRIC or Swords & Wizardry,) each with unique subsystems for using powers far weirder than the average spells:

Wield poisons, explosives, and drugs as an Alchemist.

Burn away your foes as the Incinerator.

Manipulate the powers of the mind with the Psion,

Bend reality itself to your imagination as a Sorcerer.

Become twisted by the powers of the Great Old Ones as one of the  Voidwarped.

Or make terrible pacts with alien spirits as a Witch.

I give a detailed breakdown of the contents here on my blog, Welcome to the Deathtrap!

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.
