Larloch is the famous lich, who hides in the Warlock’s Crypt on the Sword Coast.

Larloch is maybe best known for his least complicated spell: Larloch’s minor drain. This is not Larloch’s only spell, though. This tome is full of many secrets about the evil in the world. Larloch has spend several life-times familiarising himself with all kinds of evil. This tome contains information on these; from aberration that lurk in the dark, evil fey, undead creatures, as well as those savages that roam where order and civilisation has failed. But most importantly, this grimoire holds a lot of information on magic items and spells.

Also within this grimoire, is information about the different types of agendas evil villains and organisations might have. Whether you share this information with other adventures or keep this information to weave intricate stories, is completely up to you. Grab a copy, Larloch won’t mind! Not at all!!

Hi Magnus,
I am really impressed by your work.
There are a lot of small errors in the text that I have noticed, how would you want me to pass them on to you?
I could make a list here, e.g. P7 "...elan often tend to loose interest..." should be "...elan often tend to lose interest..." but is there a more efficient way to get these to you?

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your feed-back. I am currently working on fixing all those typos, errors and whatever-else snuck its way into the final document. You could send me an email to:

Hey Magnus,
I love this PDF! I'm still reading through all of it (it will take me awhile).

One thing to note, you may want to see about adjusting the compression of this PDF. It's currently at a whopping 467 megabytes. It should probably be under 75 or so.

Hey G,

Thank you!

You are right on the compression part. I will look for ways to make it easier to handle! :D

A couple of things off the bat. I find the spelling of "Artefact" in some places and "Artifact" in others, well it makes me twitchy, I want to get a red pen and circle the Artefact words and say "This is wrong, you even know it is cause you spell it correctly a sentence later."
On the preface page? I ONLY see this in white font, which means I can't see it at all. I'd like to read it but on my screen, it is all blurred out. Not sure if it is the site, my version of Adobe, or something on how it was posted.
I'm also having an issue getting the pages to number correctly. Which I mean, even at 75% I can't get a whole page on my computer screen, and I have a pretty big screen 1920 x 1080 and I don't have this issue with other DM Guild products.
I'm going to keep reading, you asked for comments. :)

Thanks Darren,

I am aware that some typos etc. slipped. I actually opted for British English at first - and then chose American English as I was halfway through (as the original product is written in American). I am still finding some words that I did not catch, like the one you have found.

Regarding the Preface page? You don't see the "list of content"? That is strange? I am not sure what could be the cause of this - but honestly, I am also not that used to formating PDFs. I'll try the file on some different adobes - and see if I experience your problem - and then try and see if I can find out a solution!

All the pages are A4 pages. If you know what might cause them to not fit on your screen, please let me know!

Thank you so much for your help!!

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.
