Bites, Burns & Black Magic: A Trio of Bard College Options

Suggested Price $1.95

Bites, Burns & Black Magic

Three Bard College options are included in this offering from The Copper Sanctum: The College of Serpents, The College of Souls, and The College of Zingers.

The College of Serpents

The College of Serpents is a more combat focused archetype than some. These snakes specialize in the usage of poisons, though they are just as skilled with using their charm. Snakes are masters of infiltration, captivation, and elimination.

The College of Souls

The College of Souls is the Bard College for death metal, emo, and goth bards. These "skulds" can use their music to literally wake the dead. Their songs tap into the essence of life to fuel their necromantic endeavors.

The College of Zingers

The College of Zingers represents bards who are more the stand-up comedian or insult comic type, rather than the musically inclined. These commandants of castigation cause chaos with their carefully crafted curses, constantly cutting creatures capabilities. They turn words into weapons, and use their foe's actions and magic against them.

Bonus Tracks

In addition, the PDF contains a short list of D&D themed insults for use with vicious mockery and other spells or abilities. Also included are my design notes which go into some of my thought process during the creation of the archetypes. I hope you enjoy the Colleges and please don't hesitate to share your thoughts on the discussion page here or contact me on social media. I'll be revising them to incorporate feedback from you. You can find me on Facebook at The Copper Sanctum, and on Twitter and Reddit as @derixyleth. Thanks!

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.
