The Combatant

The Combatant is an explicitly nonsupernatural hand to hand combat master. They excel in fighting single, powerful opponents. They can act as a human(oid) shield for their allies, tying up even the largest and most deadly monsters. Combatants defend their comrades by taking hits, spitting out teeth and snapping necks in retaliation.

Because the Combatant relies on training rather than supernatural talents, the Combatant is equally at home in D20 Modern campaigns, presenting a flavorful and highly competent alternative to Strong, Fast, Tough Heroes and Martial Artists. The Combatant is also a good choice for non-magical, low magic or sword and sorcery Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Campaigns, and is especially well suited to campaigns with a Greek or Roman gladiatorial flavor, well-representing an elite pankraton wrestler. Combatants have less access to magical weapons and armor than other characters, relying instead on their own innate skills.

Secret Origins

The Combatant is a collaboration between John Picot and myself, both in terms of the new class’ mechanics and its iconic flavor. We’re both fans of kung fu movies and mixed martial arts (though John is more knowledgeable, and less of a couch potato than I when it comes to real techniques). We wanted to build a variant, non-supernatural Monk that works more like martial arts both real and cinematic.

The chief impetus for the class was John’s desire to put out a special class PDF whose proceeds would go to pay for the training and travel expenses for a friend of his, a one time MMA fighter named Jimmy Chaikong wanting to get back in the ring. All John’s proceeds from the sale of this PDF are going into Jimmy’s fighting gloves and Creatine powder budget.

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.
