Bruised and Contused


The world is a dangerous place. An adventurer can barely take a step without an orc trying to cave in their skull or a dragon sneaking in for a breath weapon enema. With heroes exposed to so many hair raising dangers it makes sense that their bodies would take more abuse than a toilet mimic after an outbreak of dysentery. This supplement from the vaults of The Pickled Dragon introduces rules for inflicting severe and permanent wounds to characters and monsters alike. Watch in wonder as limbs fly, teeth are bashed out, and once stalwart adventures are laid low by terrifying phobias of the creature that nearly took their life! Sometimes, coming home alive is reward enough.

The Pickled Dragon Press

The second book in the Days of Blight trilogy can be run as a stand-alone adventure or as a continuation of Days of Blight Book One: An Offering of Innocents.  This 5e adventure will take the heroes through Quag Cove, a den of cutthroats and brigands, where they must forge unlikely alliances if they wish to march against the Gray Coven.  Between the Quag and the Tree of Decay lay miles of fetid swamps infested with vile monsters and vengeful undead.  Your heroes will need every ounce of their strength and courage to defeat the Gray Coven and destroy the Tree of Decay.  Get your copy of Days of Blight Book Two: The Gray Coven today!

Also, have you considered also making a .mod file with the tables for VTT use (like Fantasy Grounds)

I have never personally played D&D online so I have never considered creating files for use with virtual games but I will look into it.

Just to let you know, I am going to buy this at $0 only because you didn't put even a peek/snip of one of your tables. This is the real quality of your product, not the into. I have seen too many cheesy crit/injury tables. If I like what I see, I will come back and buy it again with a donation.
Sorry, but this could be easily fixed by maybe adding one more page to your preview or putting a small table snippet in the product description.

Honestly, I assumed that most people would go the zero route and then donate if they liked what they saw. I don't have an issue sharing a page and will make the change.

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.
