Doom Striders

ZIP File

Catapults and ballistae are the weapons of yesterday’s armies, impersonal tools of warfare that were imprecise and whose loyalties depended on the crews manning them. Doom Striders presents a new type of weapon designed for more heroic play styles and face-to-face encounters. Whether you’re looking for a weapon to throw at your opponents in the next mass combat encounter, or an effective offense against a dragon guarding its horde, you’ll find something within the pages of Doom Striders.

At their heart, doom striders are magical constructs whose purposes are limited only by the imagination of their creators. Wizards and sorcerers craft them as weapons of war or as a safeguard to privacy; clerics can build them as monuments of faith and might; warriors might seek to lead one into the thickest of combats. The choice is yours...

What the Reviewers Say...
"Doom Striders offers 128 pages of arcane “warmech” stompin’ action. It’s perfect bound, softcover, with a price of US $22.95. It has a grayscale interior, and, though I did not get to see it on my preview copy, a full color cover. The graphic design is superb, with lettering and everything enhancing the product. I love almost all of the artwork as well." -- Kithmaker,

"Doom Striders goes a long way in genre-crossing action, making the worlds of D&D and Battletech or Mechwarrior work within one another. It also combines many elements of the Steampunk genre into the mix. This would work well in Privateer Press’ Iron Kingdoms setting or with Fantasy Flight Game’s Sorcery & Steam products. With its high end technology or even Renaissance magic system it would not sit well in a low-magic or early medieval period setting games. They could however become a method to bring change into those genres in much the same way that the Expedition to the Barrier Peaks brought powered armor and laser swords into 1st edition D&D, thus shaking up the norm of your game and allowing big change to infect the game." -- Bruce Boughner, d20 Magazine Rack

"Doom Striders accomplishes what it sets out to do. I was surprised by the number of options and sample doom striders, and I have to say that I could actually envision using them later in one of my campaigns, whereas prior to the review I was not terribly fond of the idea of having mecha in a role-playing game. They convinced me. " -- Bradford Ferguson, Silven Crossroads

"Imagine a wide-open battlefield, with two armies forming on either side. Hundreds of knights, foot soldiers, and archers line up, hoping to win this battle for their king and country. Then, all is silent. One force watches in horror as a forty-foot tall spider-like machine rounds the hill opposite them. It has giant plates of armor, sharp legs, massive cannons, and a dark blue glow from within. The tides have suddenly turned. A Doom Strider has just won the battle. 4 (out of 5) stars." -- John Kirk, Gaming Report

"When I first paged through Doom Striders I got the thought of Adeptus Titanicus crossed with Dungeons & Dragons that wouldn’t immediately go away." -- June 2004 Issue, Fictional Reality

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.
