Unknown Gods (2016 Revised and Expanded)

Watermarked PDF

Expanded now from 83 to 90 Unknown Gods, this material will grant you a Lesser God for every occasion. We think you will enjoy the additional material added to the description of each god, which helps define their individual personalities, combat traits, strengths and weaknesses, interests, and even how they might interact with other gods. There are now Blessings, Curses, and New Items to enjoy! We have adapted the stats to our JG Universal system for ease of play, and arranged them by alignment, from Lawful Good to Chaotic Evil. We even included a mini-crawl adventure with map to Trameron's Throne Chamber. Much of the new material and artwork is the product of Sam Bledsaw, who is the autistic grandson of Bob Bledsaw; an enthusiastic gamer who got his start with Bob's Original Gaming Group. We believe his ability to "think-outside-the-box" has added some nice surprises to this 78 page book, and will enhance your campaigns too!
Let us know what you think, and how we might help your campaigns - Bob Bledsaw II

Regarding POD. I asked Judges Guild in their facebook group a short while ago:

Me: I was wondering whether Judges Guild had thought of utilising Print on Demand, as used by DrivethruRGP, for any of their products? I'm particularly interested in the updated Unknown Gods

JG: Everything here has been put on hold because of the City State project, which must come first. We do plan on making that (and others available in print) and it would not take much time to do. Another request commonly heard is for Dungeon Tac Cards. We hope to see both in print. Thank You for the thoughts. - Bob II.

In the meantime I printed off a personal copy of Unknown Gods at Lulu using the PDF I purchased here. It cost around £10 to get a printed copy.

Poor quality. Not well written deities. No novel ideas. Very low quality images. I regret purchasing this.

Really? It was cutting edge when it was written in 1980.

I have been a huge fan of this supplement since it was first printed, and would also like to see a print version. Any chance a POD version will be available? Thanks!

Judges Guild has now posted a free download at the publisher homepage which is a pdf file called: Universal 2.0. This provides detailed information on their stat blocks. These stats are compatible with almost all gaming systems.

Looking at the full-sized preview, they all seem to have stat-blocks of some sort, but I can't figure out what any of the stats mean. What rule system are you using to stat them up, and what other product do I need to understand them?

These stat blocks are based on the Original Judges Guild stats entries. They pre-date most of the TSR or other systems you are familiar with. If you search online for information about Judges Guild you should find information on how to interpret them. It will make sense. If you have any of the original source books like City State of the Invincible Overlord, they had a couple of pages detailing the stats. Hope this helps.

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.
