The Genius Guide to the Archon

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$3.99

The Archon is a new core class, designed for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. It is a hybrid combat class, designed to blend arcane power (including spellcasting) with martial skill. While an archon lacks the ongoing high damage output of most other fighting classes, and has neither the heavy armor of a fighter (at least initially) or the enhanced hit points of the barbarian, the ability to blend arcane and martial skills together makes up for this reduced durability.

An archon is a warrior-wizard, trained to master both magic and mundane fighting techniques. Most are members of powerful aristocracies, for only nobles can normally take the time required in youth to train for the rigors of both the mystic and martial worlds. In many lands archons are the only ruling class, with all other spellcasters and fighters relegated to secondary roles. In other lands only a few noble lines have archons, with each generation learning the rare art from their forefathers.

The style of magic practiced by archons is unique and, in its own way, limiting. An archon studies and masters spells through training and intellect, as does a wizard. However, archons cannot call upon the vast range of fighting talents pure fighters learn, nor do they have the breadth of spells of other pure casters. An archon can't match a wizard in terms of spell level, spell slots per day, or spells known. Archons do learn to mix their arcane learning with martial skills, including ways to access their magic in a more raw and primal form, making them very versatile combatants.

Format
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.
