Gem Cards Set One


Everybody loves getting gems as treasure. They are easy to carry, are generally worth more than their weight in gold (or Dollars, Euros, Interstellar Credits, etc.), and are pretty to look at. But that's the problem. In most RPGs, gems are treated as an additional type of treasure, but the "details" provided barely scratch the surface of what is needed to actually visualize them properly. Sure, you can describe a black-colored gem that has a white pattern on it to your players, but wouldn't it be much cooler to be able to show them a picture?

Gem Cards were created for use with any RPG, in any setting. Gem Cards: Set One contains 96 different gems that you can print out to give to your players. Each Gem Card includes an image of a unique gemstone, a full description, and a base value. Just print them out and when your players find a gem you can hand them a card detailing the exact gem that they have found.

Fans of the Gemerator will instantly recognize the format of the description provided for each gem and, for fans of the Mineral Magic Series, we have also included a notation on the Gem Cards for gems that can be harnessed into a mineral magic item. In addition, rules have been provided for those GMs who would prefer to randomly roll for a gemstone.

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.
