A Necromancer's Grimoire: Faces of the Rakshasa

Watermarked PDF

Monstrous Fiends that are All Too Human

Rakshasas have long been a source of fascination for tabletop gamers, and are at once among the most beloved and recognizable fiends, and also the most underused. Unlike most fiends, which dwell in distant and unimaginable hellscapes, rakshasas live on the material plane, lurking amongst the other races like a wolf in sheep's clothing. They are cunning shapeshifters, powerful sorcerers, adept mind readers, masters of deception, and evil to the core.

A Necromancer's Grimoire: Faces of the Rakshasa provides a 20-level base class that allows you to play as a rakshasa from level one, slowly gaining their abilities until you not only have all the powers of a rakshasa from the Bestiary, but, by 20th level, have a number of additional, rakshasa-themed abilities found only in this book.

The book also presents nine new rakshasa castes, each of which bears the head of a different animal, has its own stat-block, with unique special abilities and powers that are tied to the caste's theme, and also contain detailed tactics, caste, and operations descriptions which provide details on that caste of rakshasa.

From the makers of Liber Vampyr: Secrets of the Blood and Codex Mechanica: On the Creation of Fabricants, A Necromancer's Grimoire: Faces of the Rakshasa provides all the information you need to make rakshasas a greater part of your game.

Rakshasas are one of those foes that work much better outside of a purely combat-focused scenario, I always thought. More than anything, they seem like scheming manipulators, being more inclined to extort, blackmail, and otherwise make others do their [...]

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.
