Friend & Foe: The Elves and Bugbears of Tellene

Watermarked PDF

Elves and their foes have enthralled readers for ages – now find out why. This 224 page searchable PDF contains detailed information on the surface elven and bugbear races of Tellene, including history, culture, religion, social structure, subraces, and more! Designed for D&D v3.5, this supplement is an invaluable resource on all things elf and bugbear, and usable by players and Dungeon Masters in any D&D campaign setting.

ELVES: Elves have long been a part of fantasy, and their unique blend of sorcery and combative arts makes them a popular character choice for countless players. This supplement serves as a player's guide to elves, with a wealth of background information enabling you to bring your characters to life in a unique culture, as well providing new rules, including feats and prestige classes.

The elf section is broken down into several chapters, one for each subrace. As the high elves most closely resemble the standard elven race in the D&D Player's Handbook, and because the high elves are the race most commonly encountered by the humans of Tellene, they are treated as the standard elven race. The differences between subraces highlighted in the other chapters, each of which is broken down into several sections, covering various aspects of a surface elf's daily life. Subterranean elves (dark and twilight) are covered in the Blood and Shadows supplement.

Chapter One details the history of the elven race.
Chapter Two discusses the high elves, the most commonly encountered elven race.
Chapter Three presents the gray elves, studious and haughty creatures who live in stone cities and do not consider other races their equals.
Chapter Four details the wild elves, a reclusive and belligerent subrace of communal hunter/gatherers that favor freedom over all else.
Chapter Five includes the wood elves, protectors of the forests with a strong love of nature.
Chapter Six details the half-elf and tel-amhothlan (half-elf/half-orc) races.
Chapter Seven presents the player with everything he needs to know about playing any breed of elf, as well as new feats and prestige classes suited to the various races.
The Appendices (A and C) cover the elven glossary and bestiary, respectively. Appendix E includes some notes for the Dungeon Master on elven adventures.

BUGBEARS: Bugbears, too, have been spotted in fantasy campaigns for many years, but serve mostly as growling, snarling beasts with no real society of their own. This supplement changes that, providing DMs (and players) with ways to bring a bugbear character to life! Here you learn about their physical and mental strengths and weaknesses, social structure, culture, warfare, religion, and more.

Chapter Eight details the monstrous bugbear race, along with the arctic and desert subraces, and the bugbear mage.

Chapter Nine gives details on playing a bugbear, along with new rules information pertaining to bugbears, such as prestige classes and alchemical mixtures.

The Appendices (B and D) detail the bugbear glossary and bestiary, respectively. Appendix E includes some notes for the Dungeon Master on bugbear adventures.

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.
