E.N. Arsenal
Spiked Chain

Written by: M Jason Parent
Art by: Anthony "Squidhead" Monorchio, Chris Herndon & Danilo Moretti

The spiked chain is one of the most versatile weapons in the d20 arsenal. Accordingly, it is the weapon least founded in actual history.

This book explores the spiked chain with 18 pages of material about the weapon itself, variants thereof, and those who wield them.

E.N. Arsenal books are "crunch-intensive" - a majority of the PDF is devoted to rules-based material regarding the topic of the book; in this case, the Spiked Chain and variants.

This e-book includes:

  • Statistics for Spiked Chains of Tiny through Colossal size.
  • Optional rules for dwarves and other medium-sized creatures of short stature, stowing spiked chains, and wielding them as double weapons.
  • 8 variants of the spiked chain, including some historical chain-based weapons.
  • Rules for grappling and swinging with spiked chains.
  • 10 Feats for the wielders of these versatile weapons.
  • An alternate 20 level character advancement for roguish monks who master the spiked chain.
  • Two prestige classes dedicated to the weapon.
    • The Scorpion Warrior who wields the spiked chain in a devastating whirlwind of blood and destruction.
    • The Raveller who masters the magic of chains.
  • 6 Spells for the Raveller and anyone else seeking more spikes and chains in their magic.
  • 6 Weapon Enhancements for crafting magical spiked chains and similar weapons.
  • 7 Specific magical spiked chains including the Gravestone Gyr and the Ribbons of Yamashiro.
  • Darreal, the Binder, a deity of chains along with the Chains Clerical Domain.

This short PDF is fully bookmarked and ready to be introduced to your d20 fantasy campaign.

This product is priced under the $5 minimum order for an RPGnow order. In order to bring your total order over $5, we recommend Secrets of Theurgy - a short PDF about the mytic theurge class and several new variants.

The PDF industry has gone to smaller releases and tighter areas. They cover something very specific in a few pages and charge a buck or so for it. This is the trend and while I prefer books with a little more depth, I can understand why it is going thi [...]

I bought this book because one of my characters has been nagging me for access to a spiked chain for a while. I thought that I would give him one with a nasty little warrior attached to the end. With this book that "nasty little warrior" ju [...]

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.
