Catalogue of Contemptible Curses

Suggested Price $0.00

There are certain aspects of the adventuring lifestyle which are functionally indistinguishable from tomb raiding. More than a few adventurers have pried open the lid of an ancient moss-covered sarcophagus only to get a blast of weapons grade curse straight to the face. In fact, there are many ways for even the most fastidiously law abiding of adventurers to find themselves afflicted by a curse. As the people most likely to meddle/foil the plots of dark gods, evil wizards and capricious fae any adventurers worth their salt are from time to time going to find themselves or their loved one’s labouring under some form of terrible bone breaking, mind shredding, trouser splitting curse. It’s simply the price of doing business.

The Catalogue of Contemptible Curses contains D100 Curses to enliven and enrich any campaign or adventure. These curses start at the trivial head straight through the odious and end at the simply horrifying. Some merely represent strange and hopefully fun new roleplaying challenges while others are outright mechanically burdensome. Its possible a few will leave you outright repulsed.

We all know TTRPG’s are the most fun when everything seems to be going wrong and the stakes are ratcheted up to breaking point. So next time you need that extra bit of peril reach for one of our contemptible curses.

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.
