Beasts of the Outer Swells: A Rainy City Bestiary


BEASTS OF THE OUTER SWELLS is a system-neutral RPG bestiary offering a collection of unsettling and unnatural tall tales, legends, and galley gossip about several strange, wondrous, and horrific sea monsters found in the rough seas aroundthe Rainy City–a doomed fantasy metropolis at the end of the world where the wizards jealously guard their rotting magical tomes, the gargoyles are always watching, the thieves are on the prowl, and the rains never stop!

BEASTS OF THE OUTER SWELLS is built as a companion bestiary to A VISITOR’S GUIDE TO THE RAINY CITY. However, being system-neutral, any busy GM needing quick flavor or interesting content can use BEASTS for their own campaign without the VISITOR'S GUIDE.and is also perfect for the busy GM looking to drop interesting details and flavor into their own campaigns. 


At 48 pages, over 22 pieces of unique art, and over 14,000 words, BEASTS explores the legend lore of nine of the Rainy City's strangest sea monsters:

  • The Aspic Lantern, A dying light to beam above the deeper dark

  • The Clackermas, Some thunders speak of more than storms

  • The Coldwater Council, Not even the Outer Swells are beyond the law

  • Handsome Randy, Sometimes the Swells can be comely and subtle

  • The Mirror City, The impossible harbor that hosts a subtle hunger

  • The Mother of Manatees, She for whom the children shed their skin

  • The Scraw, The bones that name the City’s secret shame

  • The Wishful Wakame, A waking dream of distant shores and open doors

  • The Wondergull, A strength that dares to rise above the rain

And much more still!

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.
