100 Columns and Pillars to Find in a Dungeon

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 a large, threaded cylinder of polished, lightly-oiled steel that resembles the thread of a screw, and it is slowly rotating, resulting in an optical illusion that the column is screwing itself into the ceiling.
  • The column is a mass of intertwined, thick roots that have somehow grown in a roughly cylindrical shape.
  • The column is a pinkish-white, fleshy colour and quivers slightly. If the column is touched, it feels warm and flinches slightly. If it is cut into, the wound bleeds, as the column is made from flesh.
  • The column is a simple cylinder that is sheathed in brightly-polished copper. The copper possesses an electric charge, and any creature venturing too close will get an electric shock. Should they be close to two of the copper-sheathed columns, the electricity will arc from the creature to the second column, causing more damage. Once the column has discharged, it will be several hours before the charge builds up again enough to be dangerous.
  • The column is a single, hexagonal piece of a smoky quartz.

One page is the front cover and one the front matter.

This supplement is also available in a Pathfinder version. The latter is a bit longer and has Pathfinder stats for some items. You do not need to buy both versions.

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.
