Description:

How far will some men go for power? What depths will they plunge for the sake of knowledge?

Diabolism. We are drawn to its classical occult horror traditions: dark-robed cultists, blood-soaked ritual sacrifice, and the ornate trappings of dark magic. Like the fodder for any good fright film, it repulses and entrances us in equal measure. The Diabolist, the master of this infernal science, consorts with demonic beings and traffics in the worst of human depredations and suffering ... He is the most base of men, and yet the most modern: One driven by ambition and amoral self-interest to betray all that is human for influence and wealth.

SFX Skills: Diabolism is the first installment in the SFX Skills series, which details a new highly adaptable system of FX for modern (and fantasy) d20 role playing. Based within the feat and skill structures common to most d20 systems, SFX Skills are easily added to almost any game with a minimum of adjustments. SFX Skills also offer the ability to run both “high” and “low” magic games, even games consisting of elements of each, using the same system. SFX Skills: Diabolism is a self-contained toolkit for adding the dark magical tradition of Diabolism to your game, including rules for using SFX Skills, feats for controlling their access, and a new Background for scholars of occult lore.

SFX Skills: Diabolism was designed to be flexible and scalable for characters of 1st to 20th level, while maintaining a strong thematic focus that keeps Diabolism from becoming “just another magic system”. While particularly apropos for villainous NPCs, SFX Skills: Diabolism is relevant for heroic PCs and includes advice for “fighting fire with fire” and turning the Diabolist’s own dark skills to good ends.

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.
