Template Troves, Volume I: Serpents, Spiders & Godlings


Silverthorne Games is pleased to announce Serpents, Spiders & Godlings as the first in our new line of creature supplements. Twenty new and exclusive templates are featured here by RPG industry veteran Sean K Reynolds - from the mighty gullinburstin to the bizarre murmouth to the serpentine lenkag. Template Troves, Volume I features nearly two-dozen new and unique ways to transform monsters for your campaign!


About the Template Troves Series


One of the best and most flexible additions to the third edition revised game is the creature template. With a minimum of effort, DMs can create dozens of new and exotic creatures from monsters he or she already owns. Rather than spending untold amounts of money on each new $40 monster collection, templates allow for exciting variety at an economical price. To that end, we created Template Troves.

Each volume in this new series will be a loosely-themed collection of creature templates designed by a top professional from the RPG industry to inspire DMs with new and interesting ways to use existing creatures in their game.

I just didn't find this work useful. I bought it looking for some templates to use, and I didn't find any that I consider useful. It's a somewhat subjective thing, of course, but I generally think the templates are too focused and just not comprehensiv [...]

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.
