The cleric is a fascinating character class. Courageous and pious priests and priestesses have been a part of fantastic stories and religious parables since the dawn of history, but unlike fighters, magic users, or even thieves, the idea of an armored priest with magical power had scant representation as a hero of swords and sorcery fiction until after the original fantasy game made them one of the core classes. Part of the reason for this may have been that the cleric was drawn as much from horror movies (as a vampire hunter and exorcist) than heroic fantasy. This saw many players choosing to merely play a cleric because the party needed a magical healer, rather than embracing the role of militant servant of the faith or defender of the living against the dead.

This book aims to shed some light on the way clerics can be used in Old School influenced games, through house rules, essays, and referee advice intended to add some extra spiritual flavor to clerics and religion for use with a classic-inspired OSR rules sets.

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.
