HARP Subterfuge

- continue your journey on the new road to High Adventure

Fighters have their arms and armour, mages have their spells, clerics have their faith, but you have your wits, your charm, your skills and your luck to win your battles and make you wealthy beyond your wildest dreams.
HARP Subterfuge is the definitive masterwork on all matters of thievery and roguery. Add new dimensions of subtlety and misdirection to your Thieves and Rogues, and other subterfuge-focused professionals such as Rangers, Folkways' Hunters, Seekers and Scoundrels, and the new Ninjas, Beguilers and Nightblades introduced here. This sourcebook will help players and GMs create optimal builds that encapsulate their intended character concepts.  New rules and guidance will add unexpected depth and verisimilitude to the in-gaming experience for players and GMs alike, whilst still being true to HARP Fantasy.

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.
