Kill a God in Your Game!


Malhavoc Press proudly presents the event book, a new concept in roleplaying products by 3rd Edition codesigner Monte Cook. Requiem for a God postulates that a major event has taken place in your campaign -- the death of a divine power.

This d20 event book has everything you need to introduce the death of a divine power into your game. Game master notes detail the death’s repercussions on your campaign and new prestige classes tap into the departed god’s power. Characters can wield artifacts made of god-relics, as well as spells fueled by lingering divine essence. Meanwhile, dark creatures born of the god’s passing challenge adventurers of all levels. Tie-in scenarios feature power-mad villains seeking to hoard their new might, while cosmic forces move to realign the balance.


What's an Event Book?


If you are looking for a how-to guide for implementing a major event into your campaign, the event book line is for you. Requiem for a God is merely the first of many such products. Each takes a major event that could have interesting repercussions on your campaign and examines it thoroughly from every angle. It provides DM advice on staging the event, involving the PCs, and making the necessary changes to the campaign that result naturally from the event. Each event book also includes new NPCs, organizations (usually with associated prestige classes), and even rules, spells, magic items, and monsters that might be involved with the event. In short, it's everything you need to make that event a part of your own campaign. The focus here is that it is your campaign -- the event book is merely a guide. It doesn't force you into structured plots or leave you with no idea of what happens next.

Requiem for a God is an Event Book by Monte Cook, possible the most recognizable name in the d20 market. An Event Book is simply a single product that covers a campaign-changing event. The event covered here is the death of a god. The book is so [...]

The Times of Trouble? No, this book goes beyond what happened in the Forgotten Realms Campaign. The deaths of Bhaal, Bane, and Myrkul had serious implications but were not really expounded with enthusiasm in the available Realmsian literature. T [...]

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.
