Gregorius21778: Examples of the Dark Arts

Watermarked PDF

Attention/Please read first! This is not the work of a native speaker. The preview shows the complete product so that you can have a look before you decide if you would like to buy it or not. Thank you.

Examples of the Dark Arts provides you with a total of 25 items, spells and weapons to use in your own OSR fantasy games. Most of the entries were inspired by folklore and the “concept of sympathy”. As in folklore of old Europe, parts of the human body are attributed magical powers of their own, as all of mankind contains the spark of creation which is believed (or feared) to be a power that can be harnessed.

If not mentioned otherwise, the items and talismans found in this book can be created by non-magic-users. The components alone, along with the knowledge of the right rites which might have been passed down between the generations, are enough to create them (unless the GM rules otherwise).

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.
