Broken Table

Concept: “Knighthood. What a laughable concept.”

Art/design: A gritty and lightly edited cover illustration, with classic prints organized throughout this distressed (and yellowed) tome. 
Usability: Yellow text sections may hinder the reader over textured backgrounds. 


Content: Twenty fiends, mortal and infernal. The conflicts of Demon and Basilisks. And two new classes for suffering scvm.

Art/design: Neon yellow illustration muted with gray soot and black text.
Usability: Loosely regulated but within tolerances. 

Malleus Mörkicarum

Usability: Interaction of text and background symbols may hinder the reader. 

Man And Beast

Noblesse Tyrannise

The Deluge

Concept: “No longer is the sea just an impassive viewer of the Dying World's slow demise; it is coming up to hasten the end.” 
Content: A flood of aquatic content.
Writing: A collection of flotsam and jetsam. Sometimes humorous, often abysmal. 
Art/design: A minimalist layout with woodblock prints alongside modern renditions of fish-folk.
Usability: Fluid but with the occasional bit of detritus. Available in storm-tossed gray or eye-numbing yellow.  

The Dragon Ships

Concept: “From the barren wastelands to the towers of Grift, all have come to quake at the sight of the Dragon Ships.” 
Content: Melodramatic dragon ship marauders, a raid scenario generator, and a fury-filled class.
