Shards of Essence-Final

Suggested Price $0.00

The Shards of Essence are alternative magic items that allow players to create their magic items, their way. Armor, equipment, and weapons can be crafted with slots or found with slots, and some may have a set of shards already embedded. The shards contain the magical powers and enchantments, allowing the character to customize their equipment to their wants and needs.

The shards replace the standard magic items. Shards have the unique ability to level up as the characters do, becoming more powerful as their abilities are unlocked. The shards are also, at standard, weaker than many magic items, but more of them can be equipped, allowing for greater customization based on the particular character.

This set comes with the rules required to play with the shards and the first 20 shards. If you see any discrepencies, errors, or just want to ask a question, feel free. This system is very different from the normal magic item system, but the complexity it brings is very much worth it for the payoff to the players, the dungeon master, and the gaming experience as a whole. Thank you.

I hope you enjoy

Rules Edition(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.
