Skirmisher Releases 'Jester Dragon's Guide to Defects' for Pathfinder

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing LLC is proud to announce the release of The Jester Dragon’s Guide to Defects, a complete Pathfinder role-playing game sourcebook detailing every character flaw, mental disorder, physical abnormality, medical condition, and outright quirk you could ever want to liven up your characters and your campaigns!

The Jester Dragon’s Guide to Defects was created by game developers William T. Thrasher and Michael O. Varhola and is available through online venues that include DriveThruRPG and RPGNow (74 pages, $7.99). It is beautifully illustrated with custom images by Thrasher. 

This book gives you a whole new way to customize characters and create the roles you want to them play. It contains:

* Nearly 300 Defects, from minor faults to fatal flaws.

* Defects appropriate for any genre, from Swords-and-Sorcery to Space Opera.

* Innovative “Metagame” Defects that effect players as well as characters.

* Additional rules for Fumbles, Critical Failures, Potion Miscibility, Wearing Glasses, Phobias, and Prosthetics.

* Humorously illustrated with more than 40 cartoons.

Even as characters can have Feats that give them particular aptitudes and enhance their various skills and capabilities, so too can they suffer from Defects that negatively affect their ability to function. Defects can be used to make games more fun and unpredictable, and even more plausible. Remember, the only thing better than a hero is a flawed hero, because perfection is boring.

This book was inspired by concepts introduced in the best-selling Nuisances: Director's Cut
