Discover the Power of Faith

            The flavor of clerics and other divine classes has always been that their spellcasting ability comes directly from their deity, and is a gift bestowed upon them in exchange for their faith, or else to allow them to do holy work in the deity's name. Despite this flavor, however, clerical spellcasting and other abilities rarely feel especially divine in origin, with little in the rules of the game to differentiate them from wizards, besides their ability to wear armor.

            A Necromancer's Grimoire: The Book of Faith endeavors to end that problem by introducing the priest class. The priest is an alternative to the cleric, who uses new mechanics, favor and piety, to govern his class features, with game mechanics to help reinforce the personal relationship the priest has with his deity, and to reward players who do a good job of roleplaying their character's faith.

            In addition to the class, and extensive guidelines on using the piety system in your game, the book also provides a number of miracles, which are new spell-like abilities that allow particularly pious priests to perform magic on a scale that most characters are unable to. Finally, the devoted apostle prestige class allows clerics and other divine casters to get a sample of the fun that the new piety mechanic can bring.

            From the makers of Liber Vampyr: Secrets of the Blood and A Necromancer's Grimoire: Marchen der Daemonwulf, this book is the answer to every gamer who's ever wished that divine casters would feel a little more...divine.

Introduces the new class, the Priest which seems more devoted to serving a god than the Cleric does. It is more focused on divine miracles and less on healing for example. There are miracles listed as well as some new and revised spells. One prestig [...]

There’s an irony in the fact that the cleric, as a class, relies very little on religious devotion. If you’ve ever made a joke about clerics with no ranks in Knowledge (religion), you’re aware of the all-too-appropriate label of them being just [...]

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.
