Description:


Behold the strange and terrible world of Foree!

Awful and nonsensical are the rules of this inhospitable new world, where wizards alone reserve the right to utter the names of certain monsters. But we have dared to mention here the name of one of these fell creatures, the Wan-Ti Snakemen, and to present its fearful likenesses for your consideration.

Although used to populate the world of Foree with no acknowledgement to their true creators, the Wan-Ti are in reality the shadowy and sinister snakemen of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and other masters of dark fantasy. Dwelling in jungles, ruins, and subterranean vaults, sometimes directing the activities of insane cultists and minions, these ancient and ominous creatures wield powerful poisons and magicks in their ongoing attempts to suborn, manipulate, and corrupt humanity. They are the children of Set, and their brethren lurk in the shadows of Asian, Indian, Egyptian, and Central and South American folklore and mythology.

This set of 20 full-color paper miniatures is designed to be compatible with other 25/30mm figures and contains 16 different creatures, 12 of them scaled to be approximately man-sized and four of them scaled as both somewhat larger than man-sized and as giant-sized creatures. All can be printed out and assembled as many times as desired.

Miniatures in this set include:

* Five snake-Tongued Cultists, humans tainted with Wan-Ti blood, including two incanters, two warriors, and a rogue.

* Seven Wan-Ti hybrids, humanoids with serpentine heads and reptilian skin, including two spellcasters, four warriors, and a rogue/assassin.

* Four different snake-bodied Wan-Ti abominations, each scaled for use as both Large and Huge creatures.

Forbidden Monsters of Foree: Wan-Ti Snakemen is part of Skirmisher's Cardstock CharactersTM line of figures that can be downloaded, printed out, and used in a variety of different sorts of games. Other currently-available sets include ones for use with Mutant Future and other post-apocalyptic and science-fiction games; anthropomorphic ducks and pigs inspired by the Quactica wargaming rules; and the MILFs series of sexed-up monsters that you would just love to be able to roll d20 to hit!

Ka-nama ka langerama! We hope you enjoy both these Wan-Ti Snakemen and Skirmisher's other Cardstock CharactersTM!


Inspired by the works of classic swords-and-sorcery authors like Fritz Lieber, Jack Vance, and Robert E. Howard, Swords of Kos: Hekaton is the second entry in Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s fantasy fiction series and follows Swords of Kos: Necropolis. In this anthology, the island and city of Kos and the lands around it are explored through the stories of eleven authors and original illustrations and cartography by nine artists.

Stories in this compilation include “Bloodsuckers” by Michael O. Varhola, “Rogue’s Nightmare” by R.M. Aislin, “Chasing Shadows” by Richard T. Balsley, “The Misadventures of Bjoric” by Brendan Cass, “The Rite” by Christopher Van Deelen, “To the Dragon Apeiron” by Lissanne Lake, “Unfamiliar Ground” by Sharon Daugherty, “The Day Pateon Fnordseeker Gave Up Drinking” by Eric Lis, M.D., “Nithernons the Ale’er” by John Giddens, and “The Price of Land” by D.M.

Unusual paper miniatures are always welcome to me, perhaps sparking fresh scenario ideas, or simply filling an empty niche in my imagined fantasy worlds. I found the Wan-Ti Snakemen set did both, as I discovered it while preparing a 3D paper "lost temple" [...]

When it comes to cardstock minis, my only two criteria are: 1) Will I need/want to use these in my game? (HECK YEAH!) 2) Do they look cool? (DEFINITELY!) This artist, Alejandro, did really great job rendering a nice variety of savage looking snake [...]

I like these because they are not like any of the other minis on the market. I found the art work very unique and fills a role in a campaign I am running. [...]

As printable miniatures go, this product lies in the middle to low end of the pack. You can easily tell from the product name and description that this package offers miniatures designed to represent serpentfolk covering the same range of shapes, sizes, [...]

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.
