Letters from the Flaming Crab: Imaginary Friends


Letters from the Flaming Crab is a monthly series of Pathfinder-compatible supplements. Each Letter focuses on exploring a different topic to give gamemasters and players new, exciting options that can be dropped into any campaign.

This Letter features a new type of creature: imaginary friends! These ghost-like creatures assign themselves to children and act as companion and guardian to their chosen ward. Each has a different appearance, shaped by the imagination of the children they protect.

With the help of nine real-life children, Imaginary Friends features 16 manifested forms!

  • Animay, a hovering humanoid child with a giant pencil!
  • Caloon Ready Freddy, a large frog-like protector with big eyes and a cool tentacle arm!
  • Crocodile B, a yellow size-changing crocodile with a big scar on her back!
  • Deaths, a friendly fellow with a skull-like head and cloak of screaming faces!
  • Ella, a floppy blue toy elephant that wants everyone to be friends!
  • Lady Cimini, a majestic red-clad woman that can turn into a volcano or hamster!
  • Magicus, a handless and legless ghostly magician with a dashing top hat!
  • Mister Bora, a humanoid air elemental with a sword that can turn into a panther!
  • Pat'Chin, a really nice and really strong being with a silly smile!
  • Pistol Squidhark, a small shark squid thing that can be a water gun!
  • Secorit, a small shy person that has a heart-shaped bottle of secrets!
  • Shaper, a metal creature that hates bullies and throws blades!
  • Spotty, a tiny colorful dalmatian that loves making friends, especially with dinosaurs!
  • Trobot Espenzale, a mechanical toy with stretchy arms that's great at dancing!
  • Waterwave, a stubby friend made of water that loves playing in pools!
  • Wobniar, a living rainbow that tells stories with light!
In addition, we introduce the Wonder and Imaginary Familiar feats that allow adults to gain an imaginary friend as a familiar!

For a complete review, please check out : This book is imaginative, fun, and a nice break from the norm but is ultimately pretty niche. Even with the 16 new creatures and 2 new feats crea [...]

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.
