The Monstrous Lexicon

Watermarked PDF

A huge collection of original monsters as well as four new playable races for the 5th edition of the world's greatest role-playing game!

Terror. Triumph. Destiny.

Famed adventurers Borg Thorvald and Rynne Siruul are ready to share their untold stories. In the twilight of their adventuring careers, they have put quill to parchment to document the perilous monsters and wondrous peoples they have met in all the far-flung reaches of the world. 

The Monstrous Lexicon is a collection of 70 original monsters and four new playable races for the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. The creatures within spring from the two authors' combined 50+ years of gaming, as well as horrors yet untapped from mythology. 

GMs will find monsters to challenge players of any level, including the legendary CR 30 Typhon, Father of Monsters. 

Players will love the richly developed character races including: 

  • The Grooleshi, a deeply spiritual and introspective society of monastic elephant-men. 
  • The Gruagach, a distant cousin to gnomes who have sworn off civilization to embrace the natural world.
  • The Lupine Wolflords, a proud race of woodland hunters resembling gray wolves.
  • Two subraces of minotaur: The noble and boisterous Epiran Minotaur, and their cousins, the secretive Deep Minotaur.

The life of an adventurer is often short and violent. Arm yourself with the knowledge contained herein, and make yourself a legend!

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.
