A word from the author:

Many publishers have released numerous bestiaries for the d20 system over the years, with different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. I don’t personally believe that there’s such a thing as too many monster books. There’s always a new beast or race that can be introduced to a campaign setting that has never been seen before. However, not every old monster draws the eye of a publisher to convert it to the current game system. For a while I converted them on my own as I needed to on a case by case basis for any and all adventures I ran with my group.

Due to certain circumstances, I ended searching for monsters that needed converting to the pathfinder ruleset and while doing so, I came across more that I couldn’t believe hadn’t already been switched over. As such, these were some of the monsters that I thought were interesting and different enough that other people might use in a game of their own. Some that could even fit as a final encounter.

Going forward, I strive to find more interesting monsters to bring over to the newest ruleset and introduce to the Purple Duck Games library of beasts.

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.
