One hot night in the City of a Thousand Vices, the fates of three strangers become intertwined, as two chases, a kidnapping, and a hunt for fabled treasure fuse and transform into a mission to save...everyone. For as wicked as the denizens of Tozer may be, they pale in comparison to the sorcerer Oto Xar and the disciples of Gish. Come, weave a tale of blood-spattered heroes who pit rippling muscles and keen blades against otherworldly vengeance an eon in the making!

SAVAGE SWORDS AGAINST THE NECROMANCER is a reverent homage, meant to recreate the wonder and excitement of the weird tales that became popular in the pulp magazines of the 1930s. These stories of brawny warriors, black magic, and terrible monsters established the genre that later was dubbed Sword and Sorcery. Definitive examples of this literary style are the tales of Conan the Barbarian by Robert E. Howard. Considering the zeitgeist and Howard’s relationship with H. P. Lovecraft, it is not surprising that elements of Cosmic Horror sometimes appear in Sword and Sorcery fiction, and likewise in this adventure.

SAVAGE SWORDS AGAINST THE NECROMANCER has been designed as a one-shot adventure full of danger and mayhem, for a long weekend or perhaps tournament play, but also should be easy to integrate into an existing campaign. It is intended for three or four player characters; three sample adventurers are included, for an instant start. Mechanical details have been constructed using the MYTHRAS game system from The Design Mechanism, and the write-up should translate well to other d100-style rules. This adventure should be suitable for players of any experience level, including those trying MYTHRAS for the first time.

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.
