Fantasy Character Hotseat #1

Suggested Price $2.00

Fantasy Character Hotseat is a game resource that is useful no matter what game or system you are using. It provides more than 240 inspirational prompts that help you create interesting backgrounds and agendas for your fantasy characters. This first Hotseat resource focuses on the iconic fantasy classes of Warrior, Spellcaster and Rogue. It also provides background prompts for the four most common fantasy races of Human, Halfling, Dwarf and Elf. 

This is a great resource for players, providing inspiration and ideas when creating a new character. Often, a player has a kernel of an idea for their character ("I want to be a dwarf fighter." Or, "I want to be a surly elf.") but not a lot else. Delving straight into character generation can be daunting and you might often be left wondering things like "What skills are important for my character?" Or, "Why should I give me halfling rogue any ranks in a sailing skill." Or, "Will I need any abilities for talking to nobles?" Fantasy Character Hotseat helps by sketching out your character's past and giving them a goal or agenda. Armed with the knowledge of where your character has been and where they are going, you can get on with creating your new hero!

Fantasy Character Hotseat is also a great resource for game masters. A GM can quickly and easily generate background details for NPC's, or even use it as the spark for a villain's motivations. The other big advantage for GM's is that the Hotseat gets players thinking about their character before you ever get to stats, skills or whatever else your game uses.

If you want a fun (but, admittedly, limited) tool for quasi-randomly generating information about your fantasy character's background, you might want to consider adding "Fantasy Character Hotseat: Warrior, Spellcaster & Rogue" to your cha [...]

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.
