Zif of Porphyra


The Zif- ambitious Snail-Men of the Northern Shores!

The unlikely rise of the zif, evolved from parasites upon the bodies of the invading Great Old Ones millennia ago, is an issue all humanoids on Porphyra should learn, for two-leggers are, perhaps, not the height of development after all…

Living in their shell-city of Barbledrum upon the mad shores of the Sea of Ithreia, in the shadow of the Reversed Lands, on the border of the Purple Membrance, the zif are comfortable and prosperous in conditions that would drive most sentients insane.  With their septad system of caste and clan, all zif know their purpose, to spread the power of the zif collective to all corners of the planet- except where it is too dry or boring… Perry Fehr’s Zif of Porphyra, new from Purple Duck Games gives you everything you need to know about this quirky, aberrant race and play them as player characters.  Zif of Porphyra includes:

  • Zif racial characteristics, ecology, traits, and alternative racial characteristics
  • Favored class bonuses for over 40 classes
  • 4 new racial class archetypes, one for each ambitious caste
  • 10 racial feats, such as learning to master very useful guu
  • 5 new magic items, and 5 new spells!
  • Typical zif adventurers and a neat new sample character at 6th level!

So expand your horizons and try the arcane, eldritch mysteries of Zif of Porphyra, snail-men of the Ithreian Sea, from the marvelous molluscs at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

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.
