Fiendish Discoveries (5e)

Watermarked PDF

Fascinating and Terrifying Elements for Any Fantasy Game Where the Heroes Encounter the Fiendish

Designed specifically for people playing 5e campaigns.

Continuing the combination of utility, imaginative content, and deep research found in such books as Treasure Discoveries, Feywild DiscoveriesCity Discoveries, and Draconic Discoveries, Evil Beagle's resident scholar and master-of-cleverness, Michael Surbrook (AKA "The Professor"), brings another useful toolkit to bear for Game Masters who want to elevate their games. In this case, Fiendish Discoveries is designed to present game masters with a full understand of and extensive resources for the use of fiends in a campaign. This includes - 

  • The Nature of Fiends: Discussing the very nature of demons, devils, yugoloths, and related fiendish spirits. This includes understanding their psychology, how to roleplay them, what they want, and other ways to believably incorporate them in your campaign.
  • Fiendish Patrons: A keystone part of playing a warlock, a patron is an intricate influence on a warlock PC's experiences. The nature of the fiendish contract for patronage is explored in great detail.
  • Fiendish Bloodline: Did your sorcerer enter in a fiendish contract for power, or did an ancestor have a... troubling relationship? The benefits of such a background for a sorcerer are detailed in this new PC option.
  • Fiendish Portents: Sights, sounds, smells, and other indications a GM can use to enhance the flavor and experience of a fiendishly-entangled storyline.
  • Fiendish Encounters: Numerous set pieces - Gates, Lairs, Scenarios, and more - designed to drag-and-drop right into your fantasy campaign to add the terror and mystery of the fiendish to the story.

There's also a selection of Asian/Pacific Rim fiends to compliment your collection of monsters found in standard D&D sources. As well, the Professor's compiled a very thorough Fiendish Reference index, indicating what fiends can be found where among those same sources. Finally, a complete (and completely horrifying-yet-fascinating) set of randomizing tables enabling you to generate a nigh-infinite variety of unknowable fiends for your campaign.

Fiendish Discoveries is an invaluable tool for any GM hoping to dramatically enhance the presence and quality of fiends within their campaigns.

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.
