Master at Arms: Cudgel Thug


Blackdirge Publishing goes back to basics with the latest installment of the Master at Arms series. The cudgel thug is a master that most primitive of weapons - the humble club. Part fighter and part rogue, the cudgel thug combines stealth and agility with the effectively brutal techniques of an uncompromising thug. The cudgel thug's array of abilities includes old standbys like sneak attack, but also include new and innovative tricks designed specifically for use with the club.

So return to the primitive, grab a handy table leg, and crack some skulls with Blackdirge Publishing and the cudgel thug.

Master at Arms - Cudgel Thug includes 6 pages of new D20 material, which includes the following:

  • A historical look at the club
  • Author's design notes
  • The cudgel thug prestige class
  • Two new weapons: the rungu and the shillelagh
  • Crawsmasher, and unsubtle cudgel thug enforcer and brigand
  • Illustration by Jesse Mohn

    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.
