Paladin - Oath of the Abyss

Suggested Price $0.00

The night ist darkest just before the dawn.

The Oath of the Abyss is a curse, a journey that leads to one of two possible destinations -- salvation or perdition. Paladins who follow this oath walk the thin line that separates light from dark, hope from desperation, and sanity from madness. Unlike other paladins, they are tempted by evil against their will. This lure often stems from places of unspeakable horror, such as the corrupted layers of the Abyss or the distorted Shadowfell. Bearers of the burden are constantly at war with themselves, trying their utmost not to succumb to their inner demons which lurk in every thought for opportunities to spring into existence and oppress them. On their quest to eventual bliss, they ally with good-hearted souls in the hopes of finding strength through happiness and shared sorrow.

  • Brandnew sacred oath for the paladin class. For use with the 5th edition rules.

  • New Channel Divinity options that vest the paladin with immense power, but at what cost? Sealing madness inside one's soul is a burdensome task, perhaps too much for one person alone.

  • Darkness is your constant companion. Will you remain steadfast -- or will you heed its call?

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.
