Dangerous Denizens: The Monsters of Tellene

Watermarked PDF


This is it – the monster book for those who know that a creature’s story goes far beyond a collection of combat statistics. This 212-page tome tome details the history, habitat, behaviors and ecology of many of the monstrous inhabitants that roam the world of Tellene – including never-before-seen creatures and variants on old favorites. From beginning to end, these monsters present a whole new range of challenges.

Dangerous Denizens gives you the fine details that make your monsters come alive, whether they live in the largest cities, the deepest seas, or the most untamed jungle. All information on these creatures of Tellene is presented in a logical and organized manner than gives you more options and ideas with which to challenge your players.

- 127 monsters and 98 common animals

- 7 new character races

- Round-by-round tactics for each monster

- Thumbnail maps for “at a glance” viewing of habitat

- Myths, rumors and adventure hooks

- Alphabetical, challenge rating and regional quick-reference tables

Although usable in any campaign, this book uses the Kingdoms of Kalamar campaign setting as a base for descriptive text and cultural details. In this realistic, dynamic world, complex political alliances mix with marauding bands of humanoids, and medieval technology and culture come face to face with magic and the fantastic. Whatever type of adventure you seek, you can find it here.

Original electronic
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.
