Backgrounds from the Underdark


Have you dreamed of coming from a land of eternal darkness, with smog-choked cities of ringing steel, vertigo-inducing strongholds spread across stalactites and webs, or being raised by sapient mushrooms who communicate via telepathy spores?  Of course, we all have those dreams.  Now they can be a (tabletop-synthesized) reality with "Backgrounds from the Underdark," featuring 10 brand-new backgrounds thematic to the Underdark!

Here is a brief list of all 10:

Cultist - This background works even above-ground.

Daredevil of the Underdark - Not for the faint of heart, only crazy adventurers need apply.

Drow House Noble (Female) - Keeping the dark elf (and other) males in line.

Drow House Noble (Male) - Keeping the lowborn in line.

Drow Lowborn - Keeping the slaves in line.

Duergar Bourgeois - For the wealthy gray dwarf utilitarian.

Duergar Laborer - For the not-so-wealthy gray dwarf miner.

Lost in the Underdark - For the truly unfortunate.

Mentored by Myconids - The dream is a reality, at last! Raised by mushrooms!

Slave from the Underdark - With a plethora of choices for your oppressors.

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.
