The Eldritch


The Arcane and the Occult

A little magic still lingers at the frayed edges of society. You have uncovered just such a mystical secret, hiding in the shadows. But what price will you pay for such power?

This 12 page monograph introduces 5 new backgrounds and variant rules for low-fantasy characters

The new backgrounds are:

  • The Auspicious. You were born under a mystic sign, a rare and auspicious circumstance, giving you a gift for magic.
  • The Cursed. To put it simply, you have been cursed by powerful magic. Perhaps you did something to deserve it. Maybe you were a victim of circumstances. Whatever the reason, you are now a pariah.
  • The Gift Bearer. You carry a gift that bestows magical powers. You might be a young thief who inherited a magical box, or a hedge knight who found a legendary sword.
  • The Immortal. You are one of the rare immortals, perhaps the only one (you know of). You are vulnerable to mortal harm but do not age and have lived centuries.
  • The Occultist. You are part of a hidden conspiracy that has access to forgotten magics and a mysterious purpose. In exchange for swearing oaths of loyalty and secrecy you have received mystical knowledge, thought long lost.

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.
