5th Edition Horror

Selected Option:
Horror is a feeling, a place in your mind, and for some, a final destination. Some mad few wish to know the little terrors and the vast dead that populate the dark places between the light, be they candles or stars. The only thing between you and the fiends and fright contained within is the heartbeat that it takes to access the forbidden knowledge within.

If you have ever wanted to play in a 5th Edition Fantasy setting that is heavily influenced by horrors of madness, violence, and grotesqueness, by all means, acquire this book. 

It Included the following elements for a dastardly campaign of fear and folly:

* Character archetypes for every core class.
* A brand new class, the Apothecary, that mixes potions and uses new and untested sciences to explore a dangerous world.
* New spells, feats, and even modified skills to help you gear your game towards a horror campaign.
* A multitude of new monsters meant to turn your stomach, addle your mind, and haunt your dreams.
* A treatise on villainy, with modifications for deranged murderers and disturbed masterminds.
* Advice on how to make your games spooky, dreadful, devilishly short, or even existentially doomed.

There is plenty for player and game master alike to fuel a campaign of horror for 5th edition fantasy, and enough to paint a character or setting into dreary stories of woe and ruin. Seek it out at your own risk.

Is there accompanying art for the monster statblocks?

If so, is it in color?

A majority of the creatures here are depicted in some way shape or form. A doll, two dragons (out of five) out of 23 total monsters did not get art. There is a doll pictured earlier in the book, though.

Otherwise, all creatures get some stunning black and white art.

I picked up a copy of this recently . While not for the squeamish, it has a great appeal for mixing more horror based elements into a 5e game.

What particularly drew me is the following:

- I liked the Caliban. It reminds me a race of hunchbacks.
- The Apothacary has fullfilled a niche I've long wanted in dnd 5e: namely an alchemist class.
- the backgrounds are tailored for the standard horror archtypes.
- The use of tools as weapons helps with reskinning classic horror weapons.
- I really like the random misfortune table.
- The development of haunts as lairs was inspired.
- The expanded madness section looks great and looking forward to using it.
- The monster section is simply creatively brilliant.

I would highly recommend this for anybody running from running their castlevania clone to a more lovecraftean adventure for that one player that will only play dungesons and dragon.

Ish delivers yet again. :)

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.
