Characters: Heroes and Heretics I


A story is only as good as its villain and a journey is only as good as your travelling companions.

In Heroes and Heretics, you'll meet Petrovic Zubov, a master of illusion and clockwork magic items from the hard, cold nation of Rus. A place where the snow -- and the soul -- never stays clean for long. Friend or foe, he can help or hinder your PCs on their adventures. 

Inside you'll find:
One Cypher
Three Artifacts
Four stages in the NPC's career.

Feel free to use the four stages as is or as four separate NPCs of varying power, but with the same theme, in the same adventure. We aim to be Genre Friendly and offer suggestions on how to fit this Fantasy NPC in Modern, SciFi, and Lovecraftian settings.

Ally and enemey the GM can fit this NPC into their campaign as an insipratoin for side quests or a full full-fledged campaign.

Ganza Gaming strikes again!

Requires the Cypher System Rulebook from Monte Cook Games.

This is cool product and I'll probably use the different stages of the NPC's as different characters in my games. The artifacts are cool. The pseduo Russian fantasy fluff was a nice wrapper for all of the goodies, I could make the history of an enemy [...]

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.
