Thimbleton Inksquires Runic Compendium


From the team that delivered the captivating Baba Lysaga's Nocturnes & Nightmares and Beyond the Golden Vault, comes another groundbreaking installment in the world of D&D adventures: Thimbleton Inksquire's Runic Compendium. A fresh and immersive approach to magic awaits you, promising to elevate your 5E games to new heights of excitement and wonder.

In this all-inclusive guide, we introduce Runecasting, an arcane art that harnesses vast energies through the power of language. Runes can be etched onto parchment, engraved on weapons, or even inscribed on your flesh, offering countless possibilities for tactical and strategic gameplay. With a unique system that departs from traditional magic, Runecasting promises a high-risk, high-reward dynamic that will keep players on the edge of their seats.

Inside the Compendium, you will find:

  • The Runesmith Class: A dedicated runecasting class.
    • 16 Runic Subclasses for existing 5E Classes.
    • Over 80 Powerful Runes to master.
    • 66 Monsters and Runecasting NPCs to challenge.
    • More than 20 Runic Magic Items to discover.
    • Beautifully illustrated art and gorgeous 2-up page layouts.
    • And so much more!

Whether you're a veteran game master or a new player, the Compendium promises a thrilling journey through the world of runic magic. Much like our previous works, we've poured our hearts and souls into this book, and we're ecstatic to share the completed version with you.

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.
