OSR Bonus Cards: Fantasy Deck #1

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$1.35

  OSR Bonus Cards are a fun fantasy gaming aid designed to give low- to mid-level characters an extra edge without unbalancing the game. The group receives a number of cards (determined by a die roll) at the beginning of the night. Each card provides small bonuses that may be used over the course of the session. Some bonuses are generic (+1 to-hit, +1 to saving throw, etc.) while others are class-specific (bonus to Turn undead, +10% to a thief skill, etc.). OSR Bonus Cards are a great way to shake up the game and add some randomness to the typical resource management systems we've all grown accustomed to.
  Still not convinced? Just listen to what these basic characters have to say:

  "These things are great!" says Basic Fighter. "I was lucky enough to draw an extra attack card in the last dungeon we were in, which was a huge help against the dragon on the lowest level."
  "I was initially opposed to these cards," says Basic Cleric. "They seemed gimmicky and I hate gimmicks. But after using them, I have to admit they do come in pretty handy."
  "I agree!" says Basic Thief. "Without that Hide in Shadows bonus, I surely would have been spotted by those city guardsmen."
  "I just wish we had these back when we were starting. They would have been so helpful in places like that Silver Princess's Palace or that crazy Amber Castle."

A neat addition to most any RPG, these cards provide random bonuses to PCs, both generic and class-specific. Three different methods are provided for distributing/awarding the cards to players (and I've begun to cook up some others of my own that may [...]

I...could see these not going over real well. The OSR Bonus Cards are a deck of cards designed for D&D or any retroclone, designed to be doled out to the players and allow them to gain access to small bonuses. I've seen some old school purists go so [...]

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.
