The Bane Ledger presents 30 monsters gathered from the legends of our own world. These amazing creatures have been carefully selected from African, Polynesian, Australian and American folklore for their surprising and unique characteristics. Some creatures, like the abatwa, can be helpful and informative while others, like the impundulu seek to do unspeakable things with corpses. Eating the heart of a taniwha can infuse a hero with morale bonuses and beating a one-armed hai-uri in a fistfight can earn a character special insight into healing herbs.

The Bane Ledger features monsters ranging from CR 1/2 to CR 32, including one of the most fearsome creatures of them all, the mighty Ya-o-gah! In fact, more than half the creatures in the Bane Ledger have challenge ratings of 7 or higher, making this a great supplement for games of mid to high levels of play. The four eldest categories of storm dragons and summer dragons all have challenge ratings of 20 or higher. The Bane Ledger also features many creatures of lower challenge ratings, including the nightmarish aswang and the impossible djien.

The many creatures in the Bane Ledger once roamed the myths and legends of our forefathers, haunting their dreams and filling their hearts with fear. These monsters have now been collected and cataloged with OGL statistics and are presented here for your gaming pleasure. Now it is your turn to face the fell creatures that have plagued mankind for centuries!

Fear the storm dragons for they bring chaos and destruction wherever they go. Beware the xiuhcoatls for they can cause famine and drought. Avoid the undead impundulu for it will slay you and drag your corpse back to its master!

These and dozens of other amazing creatures lurk within the pages of the Bane Ledger! Add them your game today and watch with delight as these beasts maul the heroes in your game!

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.
