100 Superstitions and Pieces of Folklore

Watermarked PDF

You know, my granny always used to say...

From black cats to magpies, every community and culture has their own superstitions for omens good and ill. In the world of tabletop games these can same superstitions can be flights of fancy, or as much a part of life as waking up in the morning.

In this book, you will find 100 new pieces of superstition and folk lore, divided in to five categories. Plants and animals; food and drink; marriage, birth and family; luck and supernatural forces; death, dreams, and other things. The superstitions run the gamut from the pleasant (placing pennyroyal under a rug at a doorway will keep liars out) to the unnerving (if a red bird flies over a house more than once it is a sign that a bloody death has occurred there).

Interested in something else to liven up your games with? Check out our Small Town NPC Collection and our list of 80 Festivals, Ceremonies, and Celebrations.

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.
