Unearthed Archetypes: Heroes for the Ages

Watermarked PDF
With 7 new class archetypes, 7 human racial variants, 7 age categories for characters, 7 feats, new magic spells and more, Unearthed Archetypes: Heroes for the Ages contains everything you need to play classic fantasy tropes like...
  • Human bloodlines of mythic origin or supernatural power (such as the Targaryens in A Game of Thrones, the Numenoreans in The Lord of the Rings, or the Melniboneans of the Elric tales);
  • Child heroes (a la Narnia, Harry Potter, The Neverending Story, Arya Stark, etc.);
  • Characters visiting a fantasy realm from a nonmagical world similar to our own (as in the old D&D cartoon, A Princess of Mars, The Wizard of Oz, The Chronicles of Narnia, etc.);
  • Heroes who advance into old age over a long career (like Conan, Bilbo Baggins, or the Earthsea novels' Sparrowhawk);
  • Skinchangers, druids who prefer to possess wild beasts rather than change their shape; 
  • Warlocks of the Pact of the Scar, who harvest power from blood sacrifice;
  • Clerics of the Hearth domain, devoted to protecting home, family, and community;
  • Three specialized fighter archetypes;
  • Masters of disguise, characters born with prophetic gifts or devoted pets, Mongol-inspired horseback-raiding tribes, the classic thief-acrobats, and more!

SkinCHANGERS is quite a weird name for people who do not want to change their bodies.

Rule System(s)
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.
