Welcome to “100 Oddities for a Sewer,” the eleventh entry in Skirmisher Publishing’s bestselling “100 Oddities” series of universal mini-sourcebooks! Sewers figure in a lot of roleplaying games, especially those set in or involving cities and, from the lowly rat-slaying forays of fledgling heroes to quests against monstrous beasts that dwell within them, they can keep adventurers busy. They also can allow travel below, to, or through intervening places (including those you might want to visit even less than the sewer itself). They might also be a haven for criminal elements or street folk, or a hideout for those who cannot stand scrutiny by the light of day. Sewers exist from age to age, and could figure in an ancient setting as easily as a modern or future one (heck, the same sewer might ...

 PDF
When the American Civil War broke out in 1861, it sparked an arms race between the Union and the Confederacy, some of the most dramatic episodes of which involved the development of heavily armed and armored ironclad warships. Two of the first and most famous of such vessels were the USS Monitor and CSS Virginia, which engaged in a brutal hull-to-hull battle off the coast of Virginia in March 1862. This engagement, the Battle of Hampton Roads, became justly famous and formed the basis for much of what would follow in both sea and riverine warfare throughout the rest of the conflict. “Ironclads: The Story of the Merrimac & the Monitor” is a clear, evocative, and enlightening account of this famous naval duel by Adam Badeau, a noted American author, Union Army officer, an...

Product Information

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.
