CC2 Creature Cache

ADD TO WISHLIST >

A compendium of over 200 monsters, statted up for classic editions of the world’s original role-playing game and comparable retro-clones (OSE, B/X, BECMI, LL).

Since the birth of the hobby, pulp stories have been an inspiration for both the game as a whole, but especially the creatures that populate its world. Thanks to illustrators like Virgil Finlay, Frank R. Paul, and Margaret Brundage, those creatures took shape not only in the mind, but on the page as well.

Undertaken as a quarantine project in 2020 and inspired by the images produced by a host of legends of pulp illustration, this volume attempts to capture the spirit of the early days of the hobby. The result—a compendium of over 200 monsters, statted up for classic editions of the world’s original role-playing game and comparable retro-clones.

This collection features illustrations from the following, and many others! Dan Adkins, Allen Anderson, Rafael Astarita, Michael Becker, Val Biro, Hannes Bok, Margaret Brundage, Edd Cartier, Harold Delay, Elliott Dold, Jr., D. Donnell, Edmund “Emsh” Emshwiller, Virgil Finlay, Kelly Freas, Ned Hadley, H.R. Hammond, Walter Haskell Hinton, Julian S. Krupa, Leo Morey, Gray Morrow, Vincent Napoli, Norman Nodel, G. O. Olinick, P.B. Parsons, Frank R. Paul, Amos Sewell, Herman “Beeson” Vestal, Wallace “Red Rat” Wilson

If we purchase a POD copy, is there any way to get a discounted price on the PDF?

Sorry for posting here, searched all through the New Big Dragon Games & Save vs. Dragon websites and couldn't find a way to contact you directly.

WOW! Great! Do they still have the double stats for OD&D and B/X? I can't see that from the quick preview.

Is the "Dimensional Jewel Manifest" table on p. 51 supposed to be empty?

Yes. So you can use the manifest to fill the jewel with what you see fit.

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

Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
