Psychopomp Ushers of Porphyra


Because I could not stop for Death, She kindly stopped for me…

Even in a world fractured by conflict over Deism and Elementalism, the bureaucracy of Death and the duties of Her functionaries goes on… the outsider race of psychopomps protecting and guiding the souls of the mortal departed to their judgement, and their reward in the afterlife, be it torture in Hell or bliss in Heaven.  And to aid the Queen of the Underworld are the pantheon of Ushers, equivalent to Elysian or Demon Lords, holding portfolios of interest to mortals and the departed alike, and secretly upholding the desire for the Balance, away from the turbid views of Law, Chaos, Good and Evil. 

Psychopomp Ushers of Porphyra from Purple Duck Games introduces Ereshkigal, the Pale Empress, and her assistant Ushers such as Anubis, patron to the pyramid-building anpur; Black Crow, comforter to victims, and the Blessed Guides, Hecate and Hermes, finding their niches in a crowded cosmogony.  Full deity-statistic pages for 8 Ushers, including domains, subdomains, and religion traits are included.  And much more!

·         Faith traits for those that admire the Ushers of the dead

·         A new clerical domain, Neutrality, to balance good and evil, law and chaos; two subdomains, Balance and Indifference

·         The Neutral magic weapon quality

·         A new cabal for the brujo, cousin to the bokor of the Guedia Ushers, and a new psychopomp, the loa, from that faith

·         A fun new prestige class, the Transdimensional Eliminator, otherwise known as the ghost-sunderer!  (Who ya gonna call?...)

Purple Duck Games’ Psychopomp Ushers of Porphyra continues the in-world development of the Porphyra campaign setting by providing even more detail of that fascinating and fractious place, for your own home campaign.

Loved this book, and while the flaws don't annoy me, I agree with Thilo's review in that it could be edited to improve on the rules-language level. On the idea level this is excellent. It was worth the investment.

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.
