In honor of the 2020 Asian Lunar New Year, Skirmisher Publishing is proud to announce the release of “Jinshu Shu, the Metal Rat: A Monster for 5th Edition”! 

Jinshu Shu are elemental creatures that look like rats made from various sorts of precious metal and which are created on the Elemental Plane of Earth through a convergence of metallurgic, metaphysical, and elemental fire and air energies. They are very adaptable and might be found almost anywhere on the Prime Material Plane, although given the choice they are most likely to inhabit places where they can find their favorite foods, to include gardens, forests, and graveyards. They also sometimes dwell in the temples of various deities, especially those associated with treasure, craftsmen, death, and the element of Earth, where they typically serve as companion animals or guardians. 

This title includes a detailed description for the Metal Rat, stat blocks for both individual monsters of this sort and swarms of them, and special variant rules affecting the conjuration of such creatures. 

Happy Asian Lunar New Year! We very much hope you enjoy the Metal Rat. Other creatures in this series include the Fire Rooster, Earth Dog, and Earth Pig

Is it, perhaps, a "Stainless Steel Rat"?

I love the Asia stuff! Sometimes I want to kill the monsters and sometimes I want to befriend them. This one would make a fun familiar.

Format
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.
