Artifacts of Lore #3: The Spear of Destiny

Watermarked PDF

An artifact for 4E D&D.

The Spear of Destiny, also known as the Holy Spear or the Lance of Longinus, was used to pierce the side of Jesus while he hung on the cross. When Jesus' side was pierced, he bled blood and water. The relic has phenomenal talismanic power - indeed, legends has it that its owner would gain the power to conquer the world, and so it has been sought after by many despots. Throughout history, the possessor of the Spear - from Charlemagne to Constantine to Napoleon to Hitler - has always become a great power in the world; and great misfortune has always followed losing the Spear.

The Spear is entwined with man's destiny and his ascendency over the gods; a powerful occult relic, it seeks to oppose immortals at all times and increase the power of mortals.

Stats for the legendary Spear of Destiny for use in 4e. Includes a brief history of the artifact. Just try to keep it away from Hitler, please. [...]

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.
