Marble Chess Set

Pages: 11
Illustrations: 5
Game System: OGL 3.5

Do you like chess? Do you like RPGs? Here's a chance to combine them into dozens of new ideas, adventures and excitement! This file includes OGL stats for 6 different kinds of unique figurines of wondrous power, (Pawns, Rooks, Knights, Bishops, Queens and Kings) as well as 5 new feats and 5 new spells associated with the figurines. This file also contains information on how to use the figurines in your game.

Use Them as a Plot Device:

Will your characters find a random marble chess piece in an old drawer somewhere and follow that lead onto an epic quest to find the rest of the pieces before someone else does?

Or will the heroes find that an evil wizard has already collected all the black pieces and is using them to hunt down and destroy all the white pieces so he can complete his diabolical plans unopposed?

Maybe the characters find a complete, intact set, but learning the command words to use the pieces becomes an adventure in itself.

What if the pieces were animated with spirits from an alternate universe and were able to impart rare and exotic information?

Perhaps an evil wizard has created a set of black pieces and is using them to further his nefarious plans. the heroes must find the white pieces or find the components to create the white pieces to stop him before it is too late.

 

Use Them as Game Enhancements:

What hero wouldn't love to have a sorcerer or a knight or a bishop in his pocket, ready and waiting to do his bidding?

Maybe the villains in your campaign are armed with these magic items and use them to overwhelm the heroes?

Perhaps the only way your characters can learn the exotic feats and spells that these pieces know is to learn them directly from the animated pieces?

 

For just $.99 you get:

  • 6 New magic items - figurines of wondrous power including 3rd level priests, 5th level fighters and 9th level sorcerers. 

  • 5 New Feats including Armor Expert and Fearless Assault 

  • 5 New Spells including conversion field, sheet of flame and shockwave.

 This product comes with two files, the onscreen version featuring plenty of artwork, and a printer-friendly version, designed to show mercy on your ink cartridge.

Preview:

"Each of these figurines of wondrous power appears to be a miniature statuette of a person two inches or so high. When the figurine is tossed down and the correct command word spoken, it becomes a living person of normal size. The person obeys and serves its owner. Unless stated otherwise, the person understands Common but does not speak.

If a figurine of wondrous power is broken or destroyed in its statuette form, it is forever ruined. All magic is lost, its power departed. If slain in humanoid form, the figurine simply reverts to a statuette that can be used again at a later time.."

 This file contains material that was originally released in the Heroes Handbook in 2003. It is presented here as a stand alone file that can be purchased on its own without the rest of the Handbook.

This is a decent product, until you look further. However, despite its relatively high quality, it suffers from a few problems. There is no mention of how frequently the figurines that turn into the characters appear, nor how one would get one (other [...]

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.
