Paths of Shame

Paths of Shame presents new options for players who want to carve out a life of notoriety, without a care for what society thinks. Here the focus is on the despised: cowards, tricksters, brutes and ne'er do wells, from malcontents who have turned their back on the gods to simple criminals who seek shortcuts to wealth.

Be warned, in the Vikingverse, the life of an outlaw is a grim one. Forcibly ejected from your home, you will be thrust into the frigid wilderness to live or die at the mercy of the Norn, and branded with one of the Marks of the Wolf presented here. Just like the Outlaw Expert Path in the main rulebook, none of the options presented here incur Shame automatically. However, they are likely to lead the players who chose them toward dark deeds and dubious decisions…

  • Apostate: Renegades who defy the divine order.
  • Forester: Exiles, forced to become master survivalists.
  • Mold Dweller: Grave robbers attuned to the dead.
  • Shadow Stalker: Insatiable grendelkin.
  • Slaver: Traffickers in thralls.
  • Spellbearer: Advocates of abundance and fecundity.

  • Court Rider: Necromancers, protected by shades.
  • Peaceless: Ruthless revolutionaries.
  • Siren: Enthralling denizens of the deep.
  • Wolf Skin: Geneticists who tamper with nature.
To use these rules, you need a copy of When the Wolf Comes RPG, available here.

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.
