The Ageless: You are an immortal adventure who has learned to escape death’s grasp and avoid the cruel hand of physically ageing. Even if the weight of the ages is taking a toll on your mind, you are font of power and knowledge from across the ages. However, death can only be denied for so long. 

The All-Powerful: You were born at the dawn of time along with the gods. You are far more powerful than any mortal hero could ever hope to be. However, as time goes on, the divine energies you were birthed in are fading. Each use of your powers brings you closer to exhausting this irreplaceable energy which one day may fully run out.   

The Curseburdened: Once an adventure with hope in your heart and a spring in your step, excited for your greatest adventure yet. It was going all so well till you and your original party disturbed a seal containing all of the worst curses throughout the world’s history. Now you live an s a paranoid adventure, simply waiting till the curses take hold. <o:p></o:p>

The Doomed: You are a pathetic as you are poor. You are a weak, disgusting, disease ridden beggar who openly suffers more than anyone else in the world. This class is only for masochist or ambitious players who wish to weather the storm of miserableness that will be heading your way if you play this class. But it’s not all without its perks, for if you can make it to the end alive with this poor soul he becomes a great and powerful hero that could have only been forged in those terrible trials no other human could have survived.

Historian- Play a grumpy brow beaten book keeper who travels around the world to uncover the secrets lost to the past. Nag and lecture others from a distance while pelting them with books. If they get too close, that’s when you show them to the business end of your zweihander. You also utilize a massive tome that details the focus of your life’s research that can customize your flavor of irate scholar. 

The Imprisoned: You are the first sinner, imprisoned by the gods at the dawn of time for your crimes so terrible they would not chance them being visited on the world again. Now that countless ages have passed you have escaped your prison and are now a fugitive fleeing from the gods themselves. <o:p></o:p>

The Relicbearer: You possessed ancient magical treasure from around the world that have still maintained their use to this date. You can choose from a wide and colorful range of relics to own which to aid your party with in a moment’s notice. In a pinch, a GM could use the list of relics in this playbook for some nifty treasures to reward their players with in their games. <o:p></o:p>

The Stone Guardian: You yourself are a relic that survived from an ancient civilization now long forgotten to history. You are a living statue who must find a purpose and a new people to protect as you set off into the world.    

The Traveler: The knowledgeable traveler who has seen much of the world. You know where all the best inns are at, the most beautiful landscapes and the most dangerous dungeons. You are always well stocked and well liked most places you stop at.<o:p></o:p>

This is not worth $12.00. The playbooks are poorly edited and rife with typos, grammatical errors, etc. The themes are kind of interesting, and there are some clever mechanics, but overall the execution is poor. They do not appear to have been [...]

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.
