Path of the Whirlwind (a Dual Wielding Barbarian Subclass)

Suggested Price $0.99

Fight With Two Weapons as a Barbarian Without Feeling Suboptimal!

The first barbarians who walked the Path of the Whirlwind had been under the thrall of a sadistic tyrant who over time had turned his people from kinsmen to slaves. When the inevitable revolution came, the rebels took up what few weapons they could find. Large sticks that could be used as clubs were plentiful, as were axes for chopping wood and short blades used for skinning game; thus, the people armed themselves with a weapon in each hand and went to face down their oppressor. But as they marched toward the tyrant’s hut, the skies darkened and a whirlwind formed—as if summoned by the collective rage of the downtrodden—and touched down directly on top of the villain’s abode, hauling him up into the heavens in the funnel cloud. And thus he had become subject not only to the wrath of those he had wronged, but also of the gods themselves.

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.
