Adventurer Essentials: Holy Water


Adventuring can be dangerous. That's why every treasure-hunter needs the proper equipment. With the introduction of our "Adventurer Essentials" line we will examine the items that every adventurer needs to ensure he makes it back alive for the next adventure. Time-tested, and proven by countless dungeon crawles and wilderness expeditions, these are the essentials you'll need to survive the dangers ahead.

The first piece of equipment covered in the "Adventurer Essentials" line is Holy Water. In this PDF we take a brief look at the history of Holy Water and its creation. We also examine several variations of Holy Water formulated to combat specific threats. Included in this PDF are eight variant Holy Waters, two potent magic items and more! Don't leave for your next adventure without the essentials.

Some useful seeds of ideas for specialised ways to fight undead. It's a bit soulless for my taste and, for the magical versions particularly, I don't know how attractive the ability to suppress certain undead or devilish traits will be, considering the [...]

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.
