How to Use Religion in Your Game


Gods. Spirits. Demons. Supernatural entities, or maybe mere myths. Omnipotent creators, powerful beings who occasionally interact with lesser ones, or impersonal concepts. Saviors, benevolent helpers who offer illumination or practical assistance, aloof observers, petty mischief-makers, or evil presences. Whatever they are, humankind has always been obsessed with them and with their demands: compliance with their rules, offerings (up to human sacrifices), and more. Therefore, long-lasting organizations, epochal social and cultural phenomena, and even states have revolved around religion, i.e. the relationship between humans and their gods. Even non-human intelligent species in fiction often have at least ethics, or belief systems.

The more difficult question isn't: "How can you use religion in a role-playing context?", but: "How could you not use it?".

This supplement is designed to provide both game masters and players with basic tools, guidelines, and ideas for using religion in a role-playing context. It will give depth, flavor, and realism both to campaign design and character development.

The content of this “how to” guide is rather helpful. The book starts with a discussion of various ways a GM might populate the divine realm—if any—in his or her game world, followed immediately by judicious consideration of approaches to divine [...]

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.
