Trick Arrows
15 Specialty Projectiles for Your d20 Campaign

In an age of guns or a realm of spells, archery is a matter of finesse and style as much as a matter of combative effectiveness. Confronted with guns and grenades in the modern age or with spells and alchemy in the realms of fantasy the archer can quickly find himself wanting.

But necessity is the mother of invention, and invention is the accomplice of great heroes and villains everywhere. . A gun may be lethal but it cannot bind an opponent in a net with one shot and shower a lock with acid with another. A wand may produce any number of magical effects but it cannot send that effect hurtling towards the enemy on a speeding shaft of wood and sharpened metal.

With the right arsenal of trick arrows an archer can be a wonder to behold: deadly and precise while flexible and creative. Whether fighting crime in the 21st century or doing battle with monsters in the 8th, it is the ammunition and the man (or woman) wielding it that makes all the difference.

Trick Arrows is the the third in a line of affordable mini-supplements from Octavirate Games. It features 15 new trick arrows for your d20 character and a new weapon material. Stun or slay your foes with detonator arrows, gouger arrows, net arrows, smoke arrows, reservoir arrows, syringe arrows and more or use dynamite or lamp oil to improvise deadly new projectiles. Suitable for almost any d20 campaign and complete with prices and craft check difficulties for modern, fantasy and sci-fi settings. And, as an added bonus, a new feat is included

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.
