Cults and Syndicates: The Glut of Horg-Sow


A Brand New Enemy Cult For 5th Edition

“We all remember the famine. We remember the empty larders and our babies crying from the pangs in their stomachs and not having a thing but sympathy and sorrow to fill them with. Horg-Sow took that all away. And all she asks in return is a day of plenty to honor her. A morning of revelry. And an evening to feast.”

-  Elder Merasmus Cooper, devout of Horg-Sow

The world is filled with hungry folk. Mortals who must scrabble and scrape for everything that they so desperately need or ardently desire. Food for the hungry. Power for the powerless. A stroke of bad luck and a dry season turns the potential for a full belly and safe night’s sleep into a dream that only dares visit the entrenched powers of the city and countryside alike. It’s in the fallow fields and overrunning gutters of the realms where good men and women lay forgotten that the Glut of Horg-Sow makes their home. 

  To accept the blessings of Horg-Sow is to never know hunger again, no matter what a body may crave. Influence, safety, a house filled with the sighs of contentment that follow a hearty meal and precede a deep and dreamless sleep. But the gifts of Horg-Sow, plentiful and wholesome as they are, understandably demand a sacrifice. A pound of flesh for a season of plenty. And by the wretched grace of Horg-Sow, a feast for all.

Product Information
File Size:
7.57 MB
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.
