100 Columns and Pillars to Find in a Dungeon (PFRPG)

Watermarked PDF

Large rooms often have columns in them, holding the roof up. Normal columns rest on a base, which at its simplest may just be a plinth, and are topped with a capital. Each part of the column may be carved, sometimes quite extensively. Stone is the most common material used in such, but wood can be used as well. Even normal columns range widely in style and appearance. The columns described in this supplement are not the normal ones and, in some cases, do not sound as if they are remotely capable of holding a roof up, and perhaps they are not. They are made from odd materials, come in odd shapes and can have odd features built into them. The most normal types of columns described here could be used for every column in a room; the weirder ones may be by themselves. Some of the columns may serve as adventure hooks; others can be dangerous.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • The column is made from polished steel, with a rectangular hole near the bottom that is inset slightly with a tapering section of inset metal above, reminiscent of the hole seen in an organ pipe. On examination, the entire column is found to be hollow and to be an organ pipe. When wind blows through the pipe, the note sounded is deafening to those standing too close (all creatures within a 30’ radius must make a Fortitude save or be deafened for 2d6 rounds; creatures vulnerable to sound will take 2d6 sonic damage, halved if the Fortitude save was successful).
  • The column is made from solid copper, and would be worth a substantial amount of money if it could be removed (each foot of the column is worth approximately 800 gp). It is very heavy (each foot weighs approximately 1,600 lbs), though, and attempts to move it will cause the roof to collapse (see Cave-Ins and Collapses in Chapter 13 - Environment of the Core Rulebook).
  • The column is made from stone and had clearly been carved into a figure of some type. However, the figure’s face has been chipped away, the clothing or armour - it is now hard to tell which - broken and defaced and everything, including an inscription on the plinth, that could identify the figure destroyed.
  • The column is made from thick, black iron bars set a few inches apart in a square. Within the narrow cage formed is a slumped skeleton.
  • The column is made from thick strands of interwoven spiderweb. The webbing is far too large to have come from any normal spider, and forms a surprisingly strong column. Every so often, the webbing rustles or bulges in places, suggesting that there is something inside it.

One page is the front cover, one the front matter, one is ads and one the Open Game License.

This supplement is also available in a system neutral version. The latter is a bit shorter and doesn't have Pathfinder stats for some items. You do not need to buy both versions.

File Size:
0.4 MB
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.
