Creatures from Fairy-Tale and Myth 5e

Selected Option:

Creatures from Fairy-Tale and Myth is a source book for 5e

Welcome to Creatures from Fairy-Tale and Myth, an in-depth volume devoted to the most iconic creatures that transcend cultures and time. This book sets out to analyze each creature in terms of attributes, vulnerabilities, habits and summarizes the timeless stories that include them as the hero's adversary. The creatures herein will aid the GM when creating "boss monsters" or adventures surrounding a certain type of legendary creature. These beasts are not meant to be used for filler or random encounters. The DM will have all the tools at their fingertips for crafting memorable adventures.

Players will equally find the Blacksmith class exceptionally interesting, introducing schools of crafting (similar to schools of magic). The Blacksmith class has 6 specializations, 1 mapped to each attribute allowing players maximum customization.

Did you ever think that social interactions felt reductionist when everything resolved on a single charisma check? Why isn't combat resolved on a single strength check? Included in this book are optional expanded 5e rules to make interactions more satisfying - including social combat!

This book includes:

  • Brand new creatures compatible with the 5e game system
  • Brand new class for players
  • Expansions for the 5e game system rules (social combat, crafting system, power dice, etc...)
  • Sandbox adventure included

FYI, a sentence is repeated at the end of the description: "The creatures herein will aid the GM when creating "boss monsters" or adventures surrounding a certain type of legendary creature. These beasts are not meant to be used for filler or random encounters. The creatures herein will aid the GM when creating "boss monsters" or adventures surrounding a certain type of legendary creature."

Hi there. What would be the difference between this version and the system agnostic one? I mean is there any other difference in text beyond the obvious (5E stats)?

The story book version has brand new Fairy-Tales written about each and every creature by authors: Ed Greenwood, Andrew Valkauskas, James Kerr and Michele Franklin.

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.
