This is a book of prestige archetypes, prestige classes built into full 20-level archetypes similar to a normal core class. It takes the concept behind a prestige class and makes it more accessible. Prestige archetypes have the special abilities of the prestige class spread out over the full range of 20 levels, and gain the special prestige identity from level one; there is no need to plan ahead to meet prestige prerequisites and wait for several levels before getting to the meat of the prestige class.

Here are nine archetypes for playing noble characters, the bloodline scion (sorcerer), chevalier (cavalier), eldritch noble (wizard), enlightened noble (investigator), hierarch cleric (cleric), monster scion (summoner), noble virtuoso (bard), renaissance man (magus), and scheming noble (rogue).

All the archetypes in this book are based on the same prestige class, noble scion; an adventurer born with a silver spoon. At the top of the hierarchy of her homeland, she nevertheless decided to put it all to risk as an adventurer—but she’s not giving up her social advantages or creature comforts.

The noble scion archetypes are meant for players who wish to play rich and endowed from birth, characters with status and monetary advantages, balanced by weaknesses in other areas. The noble comes to best advantage in a campaign involving nobles in conflict, such as a throne war. But the archetypes are made to be balanced with normal characters, and can be used to play a noble among commoners, first among equals in a party.

This book is written for the Porphyra setting, and has notes on what it is like to be a noble from different lands of that campaign world. But most of the rules are generic, it can be used in any game setting if you only take the time to decide upon three skills that are considered especially noble in each region of the game world.

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.
