Marble Chess Set

Pages: 11
Illustrations: 5
Game System: OGL 3.5

Do you like chess? Do you like RPGs? Here's a chance to combine them into dozens of new ideas, adventures, and excitement! This file includes OGL stats for 6 different kinds of unique figurines of wondrous power, (Pawns, Rooks, Knights, Bishops, Queens, and Kings) as well as 5 new feats and 5 new spells associated with the figurines. This file also contains information on how to use the figurines in your game.


Use Them as a Plot Device:


Will your characters find a random marble chess piece in an old drawer somewhere and follow that lead on to an epic quest to find the rest of the pieces before someone else does?

Or will the heroes find that an evil wizard has already collected all the black pieces and is using them to hunt down and destroy all the white pieces so he can complete his diabolical plans unopposed?

Maybe the characters find a complete and intact set, but learning the command words to use the pieces becomes an adventure in itself.

What if the pieces were animated with spirits from an alternate universe and were able to impart rare and exotic information?

Perhaps an evil wizard has created a set of black pieces and is using them to further his nefarious plans. the heroes must find the white pieces or find the components to create the white pieces to stop him before it is too late


Use Them as Game Enhancements:


What hero wouldn't love to have a sorcerer or a knight or a bishop in his pocket, ready and waiting to do his bidding?

Maybe the villains in your campaign are armed with these magic items and use them to overwhelm the heroes?

Perhaps the only way your characters can learn the exotic feats and spells that these pieces know is to learn them directly from the animated pieces?


For just $1.49 you get:


  • 6 New magic items - figurines of wondrous power including 3rd level priests, 5th level fighters, and 9th level sorcerers. 

  • 5 New Feats including Armor Expert and Fearless Assault 

  • 5 New Spells including conversion field, sheet of flame and shockwave.

 This product comes with two files, the onscreen version featuring plenty of artwork, and a printer-friendly version, designed to show mercy on your ink cartridge.



"Each of these figurines of wondrous power appears to be a miniature statuette of a person two inches or so high. When the figurine is tossed down and the correct command word spoken, it becomes a living person of normal size. The person obeys and serves its owner. Unless stated otherwise, the person understands Common but does not speak.

If a figurine of wondrous power is broken or destroyed in its statuette form, it is forever ruined. All magic is lost, its power departed. If slain in humanoid form, the figurine simply reverts to a statuette that can be used again at a later time.."



Poisonous Plants

Available Now!

This beautifully illustrated PDF features 5th edition D20 rules for 67 deadly plants from our own world including hemlock, nightshade, and hellebore.

Each plant is presented with a stat-block outlining its habitat, size, frequency, medical uses, damage, saving throws, and challenge rating. Most entries feature additional rules for creating herbal, alchemical, and magical substances. 

With this supplement you can:

  • Craft insecticide from white cedar.

  • Brew healing balm from nightshade.

  • Extract weapon poison from bush rope.

  • Empower your necromancy with baneberry.

  • Fight oozes with myoporum.

  • Enhance your protection spells with oleander.

  • Use jimsonweed to target objects with fly spells.

  • Use bay laurel to enhance your augury spells.

  • Brew a sleep potion from black locust.

  • Create dozens of other herbal and alchemical concoctions!

Heavily researched, the effects of these poisons mirror reality. Some cause paralysis, blindness, or terrifying hallucinations. Some cause psychic damage. A few contain acid. A couple cause creatures to take radiant damage from the sun.

Some plants are only toxic under certain conditions. Others are only toxic to certain creatures. Many can be mistaken for something else. A few are consumed deliberately. Those that affect herd animals can precipitate a famine. When famine strikes, characters are even more likely to eat toxic plants.

All types of poisons exist in the plant kingdom; ingested, inhaled, injury, and touch. Most weapon poisons are easily extracted.

Druids and characters proficient with alchemy kits, herbalism kits, or cook's utensils will find this information extremely useful. All other characters will find these rules make the wilderness much more dangerous.

To help DMs use these plants, each is presented with a challenge rating. There are also suggestions for challenging high level characters with these plants. 

Beware the fireweed that grows in damp soil!

Shun the sweet redoul!

Avoid the sandbox tree and its exploding fruit!

Fear the orcs with monkshood on their blades!

Never touch the gimp-gimpy!

Enhance the verisimilitude of your games with this collection of poisons, herbal remedies, foods, alchemical substances, magical creations, and DM inspiration.

This is a decent product, until you look further. However, despite its relatively high quality, it suffers from a few problems. There is no mention of how frequently the figurines that turn into the characters appear, nor how one would get one ( [...]

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.
