The Crime & Punishment Issue

CSI Fantasy
This article takes a systemless look at “forensic magic” from British and European folklore, dating from the Middle Ages up to the 19th and early 20th centuries. In a low-magic fantasy game, some of them might actually work, and any of them can be used to provide interesting bits of colour to an investigative adventure. In a high-magic game, player characters will probably have access to more powerful magic that can achieve the same ends more reliably, but techniques like those described here might be used in rural communities and in the poorer quarters of a city, where “proper magic” is a luxury beyond the reach of ordinary folk.

As God is my Witness - The Judicium Dei in Medieval Europe
The Judicium Dei, or trial by ordeal, was perhaps one of the most colourful aspects of the medieval legal system, as well as one of the most misunderstood. The later use of various types of ordeal in witch-trials has led to the widespread impression that trial by ordeal was no more than a means of tormenting a prisoner whose fate was already sealed. While this may way have been the case in the 16th and 17th centuries, the original Judicium Dei of Anglo-Saxon law formed a coherent body of legislation revolving around the certainty of divine intervention on behalf of an innocent party.

Crime & Punishment – Why it Matters & Magical Items in Mythras
Death should be savoured, like a fine wine, from the perspective of the players themselves. There are many more ways to die than just a sword in the guts, and the dread of impending death is often overlooked.

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.
