Original Edition Characters


Original Edition Characters is a player’s supplement for Labyrinth Lord. An alternate method of creating characters is introduced, with character classes more similar to the way they were presented in the original 1974 rules. Welcome back to playing fighting men, clerics, magic-users, halflings, dwarves, and elves that can be fighting men in one game session and magic-users in the next. This book is a self contained guide to making characters in this style, and will require the Labyrinth Lord core rules.

Some of the material here seems to overlap with regular Labyrinth Lord, as spells and such are reproduced. Mainly what you get is the "original D&D" feel in character classes and races, which is cool, but I'd have liked to see some [...]

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.
