The Genius Guide to Loot 4 Less Vol. 9: Bell, Book, & Candle

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$3.99

Welcome to the ninth book in the Loot 4 Less line, in which we deal exclusively with items that have a cost to consumer of 2,500 gp or less. And to increase the level of difficulty in terms of providing you with low-cost items, we also don't deal in one-shot (or even two- or three-shot) magic items. Here in Volume IX: Bell, Book, & Candle, we're looking at a narrow range of wondrous items that you ring, read, or light up. Many of these items are useful for spellcasters (in keeping with the origin of such items in myth and legend), but at least a few in each group can be useful to any character. Everything in these pages has no charges and can be used in adventure after adventure.

Additionally, these items are all of real use. No spot-on-the-wall spells stored in a wand with a switch. We deal only in things that are of at least some practical use. No one is going to kill a teammate to take an everburning candle, but is that such a bad thing? These items can flesh out the equipment lists of low-level characters, can be found in treasure troves of mid-range monsters, or can be passed out as party favors at the celebrations of 30th-level wizards.

As an added bonus, to help make the vast category of "wondrous items" more diversified, some optional rules in this volume give various spellcasters advantages when making magic bells, books, or candles (as opposed to less interesting items that take the form of apparel or jewelry). These rules are not major power boosts or likely to come into play often, but they help make these classic icons of mystic power a little different from other wondrous items.

Volume 9 in the Loot for Less series covers low-level wondrous items fitting the title description - a rather random assortment obviously inspired by the phrase. There are six magic bells, five books, and six candles in the book. The bells are, natural [...]

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.
