#1 With a Bullet Point: 5 Magic Diseases

ADD TO WISHLIST >
PDF
$1.00

Sometimes rules supplements read like the world-setting bible of frustrated novelists. While solid world- building is a useful skill, you don’t always need four paragraphs of flavor text to tell you swords are cool, magic is power, shadows are scary, and orcs are savage. Sometimes a GM doesn’t have time to slog through a page of history for every magic weapon. Sometimes all that’s needed are a few cool ideas, with just enough information to use them in a game. Sometimes, all you need are bullet points.

#1 With A Bullet Point is a line of very short, cheap PDFs each of which gives the bare bones of a set of related options. It may be five spells, six feats, eight magic weapon special abilities, or any other short set of related rules we can cram into about a page. Short and simple, these PDFs are for GMs and players who know how to integrate new ideas into their campaigns without any hand-holding, and just need fresh ideas and the rules to support them. No in-character fiction setting the game world. No charts and tables. No sidebars of explanations and optional rules. Just one sentence of explanation for the High Concept of the PDF, then bullet points.

High Concept: Five new magic diseases, designed to drive plots, spice up encounters, and remind players that they live in a world where the black death is not the worst fate you can suffer (and provide some magic diseases with DCs high enough to threaten characters in the upper levels of the game).

  • Ashenblood:This arcane disease slowly destroys the body of the victim as it turns them into a fire elemental.
  • Barrow Plague: Those suffering from this disease are especially susceptible to the effects of necromancy, while those who die from it return as corporeal undead.
  • Fury Fever: Victims of this disease are filled with rage, attacking anyone who is not a carrier.
  • Green Guts:Subjects of this disease vomit up strange green slime.
  • Spellblains:Anyone suffering from this disease find it harder to prepare their own spells or resist the spells of others.

Here's a fun one. If you are tired of inflicting injury with spell and blade, but feel that telling a character he's eaten something that disagreed with him or even has contracted plague somehow doesn't fit well with your fantasy world, why not try som [...]

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.
