"If you want to add a new level of strange to your game, this is a monster book for you. These denizens aren't random encounter chart fodder and each deserves its own adventure hook." Halls of the Nephilim

The botique bestiary you didn't know you wanted!

The Wood is the thickest, oldest, darkest, and dankest forest there is. Deep inside the pallid gloom, past tangled limbs and towering boughs, lives the harmonious Lord of the Forest: the Faun. He has called and collected the creatures and the critters of the Wood together, for he senses that peril and destruction are imminent.

For the Faun knows many secretive things, even that player characters are making their way into the Wood even as you read this, and his adherents shall be prepared.faux.png

Monsterarium is a boutique bestiary, populated with fiends and fey alike. These aren’t the kind of the monsters you run into d12 of each time your GM fears you’re bored. From the Al, the demon of childbirth, to the Hair that had a Human, these are beings you may have never before encountered.

There are 18 different creatures. Some might object to that label, however!

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.
