Myths & Legends #11: The Grim Reaper

Watermarked PDF

(Yes, it's #11 - but we jumped out of order to release this one for Halloween!)

The sixth in EN World's Myths & Legends series, which provides 4E versions of archetypal mythological figures.

The Grim Reaper, Thanatos - there are many names for the personification of death. Typically appearing in a black robe and wielding a scythe, the Grim Reaper's job is to escort the souls of the deceased to the afterlife, where it hands them over to Charon for passage across the river Styx. However, the black robe and scythe are not its only appearance - it is believed that the Grim Reaper looks like whatever the viewer expects it to.

The statistics on this “personification of death” match the “fluff” well, but more explanation of how to fit this figure into a typical D&D fantasy setting would be helpful. [...]

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.
