Lasers & Liches: Game Master's Beats (Beta)

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the Retroverse!

An exciting new 5E universe from Lasers & Liches that resides in a place of half faded memories, barely remembered songs, lost childhood friends, outdated styles, abandoned dreams, lost playthings, vapor ware, and time corroded nostalgia. A place both strange and familiar. A place for adventure, friendship, chaos, and the magic of yesteryear. In short, a place that combines your love of the present with your adoration of the past.

The Game Master's Beats features over 120 new creature stat blocks, over 100 new magical items, a huge world map with rules on how to make your own, a d100 adventure generation table, a full adventure taking players from level 1 to 18 or more, and a few other neon-tinged surprises!

Version 3 has had a complete overhaul of every stat block in previous versions, updating them for clairty and bugs. There are several additions to monsters, world locations, and magical items. The larget update is the final addition to Warren's Grove: the Black Castle. It is a mega dungeon of over 120 rooms, full of secrets, goofs, and enough adventure to keep your players busy for months! This version of the GMB is nearly finalized, with onlky some additional backer content missing. 

Please Note: This is still in Beta. There are bugs! The current price reflects that and will increase as it grows nearer to completion. Thanks for helping us make this the best game possible! This file will be updated until completed, as we are able

You may want change the rules system this is listed under in drivethrurpg. Currently it’s not listed as 5e compatible so it doesn’t show up in 5e searches. So there’s potentially folks who would be interested in this dope product who unfortunately aren’t seeing it.

I came upon this completely by accident but it seems interesting.

Question - in looking through the preview there are some full color art pieces, and others are just line art. Is the art unfinished? Or is that the overall style of the book?

Some art will be slowly updated but most of it will stay the way it is.

That boarder is way too busy. Very distracting.

Feedback: on page 85, part of the stat block is covered up by the picture so you can't fully read the attack description.

We are going to release the maps alone as their own thing soon enough.

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.
