The Quintessential Barbarian

Watermarked PDF

The frothing berserker gnaws upon his shield in expectation of a bloody battle and howls his rage. The scarred veteran raider stands upon the prow of his longship, eager to lead his men to spoils that await the warriors in the homes and hearths of soft city dwellers. The painted savage blends into the thick jungles, blowgun ready for the kill, tasting the air for the scent of his prey. The Amazon warrior, the arctic hunter, the swamp warrior, the town drunk, on and on goes the list of those who would be barbarians. The Quintessential Barbarian greatly expands the options for the barbarian class, elevating the barbarian from a killing machine to a fully realised character that functions as a viable alternative to the precise fighter, vainglorious paladin and the foe-slaughtering double-weapon wielding ranger.

The barbarian is a figure of absolute violence, his abilities largely centred on boosting his raw strength and endurance. When he enters a rage, he is harder to manipulate and is, most certainly, a figure that inspires fear in his enemies. The barbarian is the one who throws caution to the wind, flings himself through doorways, bathes in the blood of his foes and dares any to stand against him.

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.
