Monsters of the Rising Sun! 
Mythic Monsters: Japan brings you an incredible assortment of monstrous and magnificent creatures from the Land of the Rising Sun, the fabulous and fertile fantasy realms of legendary Japan. These incredible creatures range from CR 3 to CR 30, from the the charming tanuki and the pugnacious kappa to the terrifying bakekujira, trailing oceans of death in their wake. You'll find menaces that are as beautiful as they are deadly in the long-haired harionago and the pale snow maiden yuki-onna. Some creatures of Japanese legend are purely helpful, like the friendly pipefox and the noble kirin, while others are avatars of purest death like the towering skeletal gashadokuro and the sinister scythes of the shinigami. Some of the mythological menaces of Japan appear harmless at first glance like the saw-toothed lily pads of the kawa akago, while others are shapeshifters who hide their cruel intentions behind a dissembling guise before unleashing their treachery, like the ogre mage and the spider-woman jorogumo. As if a dozen mythic monsters were not enough, we also bring you the apocalyptic fury of the many-headed Yamata no-Orochi, a colossal water dragon with a temptestuous fury and a parching addiction to the finest sake. In addition, we bring you an assortment of marvelous magic items that perfectly preserve the fantastic flavors of Japan, including the crane kimono, oni mask, princess peony, rokurokubi whip, and tombo fan! Grab this 32-page Pathfinder monster book today and Make Your Game Legendary! 

The Mythic Monsters series from Legendary Games brings you dynamic and exciting mechanics alongside evocative and cinematic new abilities that really help creatures live up to their flavor text, whether they are creatures of real-world myth and legend or creatures born out of the RPG tradition itself. These creatures can work just as well in a non-mythic campaign as they do in one that incorporates the full mythic rules, as you can throw them at your jaded players who think they’ve seen it all or know the standard monster stats as well as you do. That look of surprise and “What was THAT?” will warm any GM’s heart.

This all-new 30-page supplement by Jeff Lee and Jason Nelson is a terrific complement to the Mythic Monster Manual, with over 220 mythic monsters and an awesome array of monster-focused abilities, feats, and more for your Pathfinder game! Pick up both books today and Make Your Game Legendary!

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.
