The Manor, Issue #9

Watermarked PDF

The Manor is an OSR zine that's been around since 2012. Dedicated to keeping it fun.

This issue was created from my sandbox campaign called The Komor Forest. The articles found within helped develop my campaign find its own voice and uniqueness. A peek behind my DM screen.

Issue #9 starts off with four varations of the cleric class. Each god values a set of principles and their clerics should reflect those principles. Sarrath,a God of War, demands his disiples adhere to a strict code of obedience. Delaquain, Goddess of Battle, values individual thought, a person willing to stand up again many. Lavinia, is the Goddess of Life, her faithful care for ally and enemy alike. Possimium, a God of Nocturnal Creatures, who is always planning and gathering supplies for the next war against evil. 

I've used to Swords & Wizardry Continual Light ruleset, monsters have special traits they use in combat or just in general. When creating my own creature I expended the traits to suit some of my creations. 

An encounter table using 3d6 to create common, rare and unique encounters. He encounter is detailed. A few of the encounters are set up to become adventures on their own. The list not only features critters they party will have to contend with, but also landmarks and ruins.

Lastly, The Crooked Man Tavern. It can be found in a local dungeon near you. A place where silver is secondary to information. What's on tap is what was stolen recently. Skullduggery is found everywhere, even at the bottom of the tankards. Not to mention the demon in the closet.

Thanks, and enjoy!

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.
