Trail of the Behemoth


The world is filled with monsters that tower over the hills; beings that some call gods… And they want to eat you for breakfast.

As a Hunter, you stand between the monsters and humanity. Each hunt you’ll gather clues about your foe’s weaknesses, then engage in a climactic battle against the colossal beast, a monster so big that its body becomes the terrain on which the Hunters climb. 

We made Trail of the Behemoth because we wanted a tabletop roleplaying game we could bring to a board game night. If you want to play a fast, action-packed game all about fighting epic monsters, you’re in the right place.

What’s Inside:

  • Titanic Boss Battles. The monster IS the battle map. Climb the colossus to attack its wings or disable its scorpion tail. Exploit weaknesses for double damage!
  • Fast, Simple Rules. Teach a group to play, make new characters, and run an entire adventure: all in under two hours.
  • Five Epic Adventures. Use them as one-shots, or play them in sequence for a short campaign. Each hunt is extensively tested with new players and veterans alike.
  • Monstrous Trophies. Slay a dragon to get a sword forged from its fangs, or armor wreathed in dragonscales.
  • Push-Your-Luck Combat. Take as many actions on your turn as you dare — each one comes with an increased risk that the monster retaliates!
  • Easy Monster Creation. Simple rules for building adventures (because making monsters should be fun, not work). Perfect for first-time GMs. 
  • Incredible Art. No seriously, it's beautiful. We licensed these pieces from Abrakham Entertainment's Faeria and gave them a new home!

Is this a GUMSHOE system game?

It is not, the system is totally custom! That said, there is definitely some stylistic overlap in the Investigation phase — the focus is on making sense of the clues you find, rather than the finding itself.

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.
