QMR - Book of Bewildering Beasts


Whether you're a Questers of the Middle Realms GM or an afficionado of another fantasy game looking for interesting ideas, The Book of Bewildering Beasts has something for you!

It's a compilation of 44 creatures originally released in the mini-supplements Ten Bewildering Beasts vols 1-4, with write-ups and PDQ system stats in the QMR style, blending danger, humour and downright weirdness.

Extras include:

  • updated list of common creature Qualities;
  • gazetteer indicating which monsters are noted in each region;
  • Creature Types - analogues of racial Qualities, with write-ups for Dread, Empyrean and Nether creatures.

"I have to say, all of the write-ups are useful, and some of them are downright inspired. If you're playing any sort of fantasy game, pick up a copy: the critters are easily adaptable to any system. If you're playing any sort of PDQ-based game - like Dead Inside, Ninja Burger, MNPR:RPG, Truth & Justice, or ... The Zorcerer of Zo - this book would be a great resource."
Chad Underkoffler

This is acool product. The PDQ system can be ussed to create any kind of beastie for QMR. The collection found here has some really neat monsters. i would give an example but it would just spoil the read. [...]

The fun continues! I enjoyed this product and appreciated the variety of monsters and beasts it offers. It definitely supports the freestyle attitude of QUESTERS without making you feel that there's going to be just one more sourcebook around the corne [...]

A useful compendium of previously released mini-supplements, the Book of Bewildering Beasts offers not only "classic" monsters like ghosts, manticores and vampires, but also new and imaginative creatures (e.g., tremor worm, aphid golem!) as [...]

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.
