101 Strange Religious Rites

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

101 Strange Religious Rites contains not only a list of one hundred bizarre religious customs, it also contains several extra tables to help you flesh out your religious rite, and an additional entry as an example of how to use them.

Some entries you will find:

7. Because stepping on something transfers bad energy into it, the priests of Hwaldaj spend their money on portraits of people, which they then place under the floorboards of their temple, so that bad energy flows out of them and into others.

87. When animals are sacrificed in the temples, the picture of the emperor is covered up, because he is a vegetarian. While he has not banned animal sacrifice, our of respect for the many gods that enjoy it, he cannot stand to see an animal killed.

98. Worship of the god Ubikitos involves keeping a written diary. These pages are then deposited at the temple, where the monks bind them randomly into huge books that they keep in their library of prophecy. Random pages in random books that have not been perused in over a century is how they divine the future.

Additional tables include what acts accompany this rite, what people think of it, and what neighboring cultures think of it.

The Amazing List of Things is dedicated to bringing you quality lists for randomly generating campaign content.

This product is system agnostic and can be used in any campaign with any game system. All religions dipicted in this product are fictional and no offense to any real religious practices is intended.

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.
