The Lexicon of the Throne

Selected Option:

Unlock the Words of Creation for the Godbound role-playing game and arm yourself with mighty tools for the forging of new faiths for whatever games you play.

The Lexicon of the Throne is a sourcebook that contains not only a host of new Words of Creation for your Godbound game, but also extensive guidelines for creating new Words and gifts for your own campaign. In addition to these new Words, half the book is devoted to a set of GM tools for creating new religions and clerical hierarchies, tools that serve in the best Sine Nomine tradition for use in any game you play, whether fantasy, modern, or sci-fi. Even those GMs who don't indulge in the divine heroics of Godbound can profit by these polished and powerful tools.

Within these pages, you'll get:

  • Advice and guidelines for creating new Words and gifts.
  • New Words of Creation, including Birds, Cities, Dance, Deserts, Desire, Engineering, Entropy, Fear, Insects, Intoxication, Madness, Murder, Music, Networks, Protection, Theft, Underworld, Vengeance, War, and Winter.
  • Concept Words that encapsulate mythic beings in a single neat package, including Artificial Intelligence, Dragon, Faerie Queen, Lich King, and Peak Human
  • Guidelines for creating new Strifes, with the example Strife of the Hunger Within and new heroic-mortal lesser strife rules for elaborating on their less godly techniques.
  • System-agnostic tools for building new religions, from their humble origins to present world-spanning influence. Devise hierarchies, organize doctrines, and turn this preparatory work into the kind of conflicts, problems, and ambitions that make useful adventure grist.
  • Forty new religion tags to customize and complicate your faiths, giving them Friends, Enemies, Complications, Things, and Places proper to their holy cause.
  • Guides for building Godbound cults, the better to help players decide what kind of sacred duties they wish ti impress on their followers and to help GMs decide just how much Dominion these demands are worth.

So seize it now, noble reader! Godbound players and GMs will find a lush profusion of aids for their games, while even those who prefer other games will be armed with a mighty host of GM tools and helps for building religions in their worlds.

(Nota Bene: While the book is listed as standard heavyweight color, it is chiefly in black and white. I selected the standard heavyweight print method for its superior paper weight over the black and white print method.)

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.
