Legends Of High Fantasy


Legends of High Fantasy

                             Characters for a mythic world.


     By Patrick Bryant and Paul Melroy. 147 Pages


     Is the story of “How the characters became rich and powerful” really enough? Legends Of High Fantasy focuses on the foundation of any campaign - the abilities and tales of the characters who inhabit it. Bring the story to life with new characters, classes, backgrounds, equipment, and magical techniques.


     Legends Of High Fantasy includes:


     Motivations and Backgrounds to jumpstart your characters tale.


     Spellweaving - a magical system unique to Sorcerers and Druids, rather then a derivative of the rules for Clerics and Wizards. Spellweaving includes the 80 primary weaves and their 400 major applications, to be used and combined in an unlimited number of individual spells. To help tailor your magic to your game the system includes options for Augmentation, Backlash, and Elemental Constructs, allowing the easy introduction of suborders, restricted magics, and forbidden lore.


     The Monotheistic Cleric, with the True Light, Darkness, and Wilderness exclusive domains. Shouldn’t your religion be more then a power base? Let your faith and devotion be tested!


     Monkish Traditions. Why should monks be stamped out of a common mold?


     The Cemarian Ranger, who communes with the spirits of the land.


     The Social Rogue - because sometimes a cutting remark is more effective then a broadsword.


     50 Feats - including special “Starter” Feats designed to shape your character’s tale. Can you fulfill your destiny, overcome your all-consuming curse, or learn to control your legacy?


     32 weapon and armor Proficiency Categories and rules for Specific Knowledges and Contacts.


     Four Prestige Classes, new options for races, and new options for every other base class.


     Legends Of High Fantasy is the first sourcebook in the Cemar series and will shortly have a companion volume - The Magical Arts Of Cemar - but it can be used in any d20 campaign.


     Be the Legend.

Like the other books from Distant Horizon, LHF modifies, or replaces, the standard d20 rules. In this case it is for a setting but everything can be adapted, or used whole cloth, for your use. It starts with character motivations, backgrounds that prov [...]

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.
