Fantasy Occupations


What did your Player Characters do before they began their lives as Adventurers?

Most adventurers typically start their careers in their late teens or early twenties...and while that sounds about right in the modern world, a person in a medieval period would conceivably be married, have children, own property, and work in a profession by the time he was 16. Thus, a first level fighter could be leaving a family behind in order to enter his first dungeon. He might have to worry about who's minding his blacksmith shop while he's off slaughtering kobolds.

Fantasy Occupations is a d20 resource designed to help players and Game Masters flesh out the backgrounds of first level fantasy characters, taking a page from d20 Modern and using Occupations to reflect a character's background and former livelihood. Occupations offer permanent class skills, starting money and bonus feats to first-level characters, as well as providing more detailed backgrounds for roleplaying.

Very well thought out product, and another one of those things that you don't realize you need for your game until you see it. Well organized. Nice layout. High quality. I'm very pleased with this purchase. [...]

I didn't know I was missing this until I found it! ;) Seriously, taking the d20 Modern Occupation rules and adapting them for D&D... or any other fantasy d20 game... was just what my campaign was missing. For those unfamiliar with the system [...]

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.
