Four Horsemen Present: Minmaxed Monsters

Sometimes the Bad Guys Need Optimization Too!

In conjunction with d20PFSRD.com and Rogue Genius Games, the Four Horsemen bring you their latest release!

Look, we’re not suggestion a GM should have an adversarial relationship with the players. The GM has all the power, and can simply make a monster immune to all attacks and able to kill anything at will. But that’s no FUN, and it’s a great way to drive away players.

Oftentimes the best way to make a villain challenging enough to be fun and memorable is to build both the NPC and the encounters by the rules. The hard part is learning how to optimize within the core system. PCs have the opportunity to finely plan and handcraft characters using a plethora of supplemental source material. The right feat, with the right class, and a mix of archetypes can become a brutal combination. This book is a GM’s guide to doing the same thing, so the player’s are wowed by your cleverly-designed foes.

This way, the GM can tell shocked players an antagonist was made with all core products and is “just fighting smart.” Players who minmax to ruthlessly overcome all challenges have no logical defense for this tactic. It puts the narrative power back where it belongs—in the hands of the GM. Once the GM regains confidence, she can go back to making stories more about intentional sacrifice and watching players work together to overcome a challenge, rather than “losing.”

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.
