Wicked Fantasy: Orks: Children of Pain

Watermarked PDF

Come closer to the fire, child. Come closer, listen and I will tell
you how we murdered the gods...

Wicked Fantasy began as a series of articles in Kobold Quarterly
Magazine reinventing the "standard races" in fantasy roleplaying. Now,
those same articles have been expanded and revised (five times their
original size!) and fit with the PATHFINDER Roleplaying Game.

The second in the series--Children of Pain--tackles the most set upon, abused and misunderstood race in all of fantasy literature: the orks.

Created for lives of evil, orks rose up and overthrew their gods. Now,
they battle against what they were so they may forge their own

No longer the "standard evil race," orks have become something more.
Taught that all life was pain and that only pain makes an ork great,
they have embraced that philosophy, while at the same time, turning it
into something greater. They are no longer the slaves of dark gods.
They are orks. Free to choose. Free to make the world into a better
place... or rend it to shreds with their bloodlust and rage.

Wicked Fantasy: Children of Pain includes:

  • New Ork Racial Traits
  • New Feats including Masochistic Feats and Reputation Feats
  • New Oracle Archetype: The Oracle of Blood
  • New Barbarian Archetype: The Gahthrak (God Eater)
  • New Bard Archetype: The Fala
  • Ork Blooding Rituals
  • And More!

This week I am reviewing Children of Pain, by john wick, a short PDF on orcs using the Pathfinder rules set. In an old game in which I participated once described goblins, orcs and smilar races as potato chips – crunch all you want, we’ll make more [...]

I have always been fascinated with taking “evil” creatures and making them more sympathetic. I think orks (to use the nomenclature of this book) should be more than faceless minions of evil sorcerers. They should have their own motivations for what [...]

This pdf by John Wick Presents is 26 pages long, 1 page editorial, 1 page ToC/prelude, 1 page front cover, 1 page advertisement and 1 page SRD, leaving 21 pages of content, so what exactly do we get with these Orks (yeah, with "k", just like [...]

John Wick knows Orks. If you want to add some more color, life or some just "more" to your Orks/Orcs then this is the book to get. These are not "misunderstood" orcs, these are orcs that got tired of the lot fate and the god [...]

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.
