Welcome to North America's Weird Mythology!

"Fearsome critters" is a phrase for a uniquely American phenomenon. It first starts with American lumberjacks who were fond of inventing stories to pass the time. Sometimes those stories were invented to prank the newbies (known as “tenderfoots”), sometimes they were to explain unknown phenomena, and sometimes it’s clear they were created to just to be amusing. Often forgotten by fantasy bestiaries, these beasts are back to remind you that they're no pushovers.

Inside, you'll find 47 new monsters for 5E games, ranging from the ball-tailed dingmaul to the soul-sucking dungavenhooter, from the fast-moving flitterick to the backwards-flying goofus bird, from the pathetic squonk to the elusive snipe...they're all here, waiting to confound, confuse, and potentially consume adventurers.

This PDF has a bookmarked table of contents, with monsters linked by creature type, challenge rating, and environment. Challenge ratings range from 1/8 to 14.

Snipe are real, though. Lots of lies and stories are told ABOUT them (including the infamous "snipe hunt"), but they're real.

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.
