Adventurer's Option - Strained and Battered

Description:

Torrok shook under the mighty blow. The battles had been raging on all day, and the minotaur he now faced was not the first he'd fought that day - and who knew if it would be the last. He'd never known himself able to push his endurance and resilience to such limits. If he survived only a single night of rest would await him before the battle was rejoined. With grim certainty he knew, come tomorrow, that the strain of today would still bear heavy upon him.

When an adventurer is pushed to their limits, there is a price to pay! Add to your games a level of hindrance to a character's health and recovery. Inside this 4e supplement you'll find rules that provide a noticeable in-game impact to a brutal day of action while at the same time not penalizing characters to a degree where they no longer function or become incredibly cautious. Built upon the concepts and rules structures of the base 4e game, it introduces new dimensions of knife-edge play while shying away from explicit injuries, wound tracking and additional game complexity.

You will like playing with this product if...

  • You want a character's physical condition at the end of the adventuring day to mean something
  • You yearn for more grittiness in your game
  • You dislike the "1 HP to full" nature of Extended Rest healing
  • You enjoy added game intricacy without added complexity
  • You are looking for additional rules support that is built upon the systems already in the game for easy integration

Live on the edge - Expand role playing options and opportunities
Feel the weariness of your characters - Broaden your game

I think this is worth a look if you have campaigns that don't have long dungeon crawls. I run a sandbox style game with a lot more rests and breaks between events than most DMs. This book gives some options for longer term effects for players that get [...]

This is exactly what I want and expect for my two bucks. Clearly written and attractive, these optional rules would be a great addition to any 4e campaign suffering from overpowered adventurers as mine currently is. I can't wait to implement them! [...]

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.
