DMs, do your players think they?ve seen it all? Do they know the stats of every creature in Core Rulebook III by heart? Have they begun to grow weary of many of the "Stock? monsters in your fantasy gaming sessions? Then, it's time to try something different.

The Book of Templates is a supplement featuring thirty (30!) new creature templates for the d20 System?, ranging from subtle to bizarre. Breathe new life into the very creatures your players have come to take for granted.

Each bookmarked template comes complete with plenty of d20? ?crunch? and just enough flavor text to spark the imagination to new heights ? thought-provoking templates that can form the seeds of a new scenario, adventure, or even an entire campaign. Every template also features a complete example of how it is used ? that's thirty templated creatures ready to go right ?out of the box?! And the file is so compact, you can put the whole thing on a floppy disk and take it with you anywhere.

Try the Book of Templates. Your players will never know what hit them!

Note: This is the original product using 3.0 rules. It has not been updated to the 3.5 revision.

This book contains around thirty templates for use in d20 fantasy games. Templates are applied to monsters in order to give them particular abilities, or boost or lower them in power. Some of the templates seem awfully specific, as if targeted [...]

All of the templates are interesting and inovative. The biggest flaw is that the CR adjustment on some of them are miscalculated. [...]

I found this book to be incredibly useful. I enjoyed the additional flavor options it provided me with. <br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: The format was useful, and I like the inclusion of samples with each template.<br><br>& [...]

Interesting PDF, but not as useful as I'd anticipated. That may be more because of me than the product itself. Some of the templates, such as the plant creature one, can be used to create playable, memorable alternatives to standard creatures. Overall, [...]

This book is a step in the right direction. But the execution is sorely lacking. Many of these tomplates are overpowered. The Dreadnaught certainly fits into this catergory. With more examination I might find something I like. I wasn't impressed. [...]

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.
