ZIP File
Killers, Volume One: Cold Hearts & Hired Knives: Second Stab! is a revised and expanded collection of memorable NPC assassins, murderers, bandits, hired thugs, and other miscreants for use with any fantasy d20 campaign, featuring 18 NPCs of various races, sexes, and murderous habits, each with complete stat blocks and background stories in the usual obsessively thorough Cryptosnark fashion. Each NPC is also given a portrait by Michael Yatskar.

Killers, Volume One also offers 3 new spells, a new minor god and his attendant cult, 14 unique new magic items or weapons, and 14 new poisons, as well as other juicy details mingled with the cold, hard facts!

The Second Stab edition has been prepared to fix a problem with washed-out illustrations in the first version of this PDF-- the images are now as sharp and rich as they should be. Plus, we've added two new NPCs, an optional appendix for use with *The Book of Distinctions & Drawbacks,* and a companion PDF containing all 18 NPC stat blocks in printer-friendly black-and-white!

30 pages in PDF format.

Give 'em the Cold Steel: If you still need a few detailed and flexible NPCs to challenge your characters with, look no further than the Dogs of War bundle from Ronin Arts!

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.
