Iron Falcon Handbook of Monsters

Selected Option:

Some of our monsters are missing...

The Iron Falcon Rules for Classic Fantasy Role-Playing represent the role-playing rules and style of the early days of role-playing.  One of the side effects of choosing that era is that many classic monsters are simply missing, as they had not been invented yet!  But what if you have an adventure written for a slightly later era, or perhaps an Old School Renaissance adventure module designed in the classic style?  Finding Iron Falcon-compatible statistics for classic monsters can be a challenge.

There must be a solution.

This book is it.  The Iron Falcon Handbook of Monsters combines the original core rulebook creatures with the full list of monsters found in the Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game, along with many additional monsters by the author and contributors.  These new monsters have been made fully compatible with the Iron Falcon rules.  Some of the existing monsters from the Iron Falcon rulebook have been carefully revised, with attention paid to retaining their style and flavor.

Classic challenges for Old School adventures!

The goal of all of this is simple:  The Iron Falcon Handbook of Monsters aims to be the go-to resource for anyone running RPG campaigns using 0e-era games, whether classic or retroclone, providing all the monsters needed to run classic adventures as well as more modern adventures written in the classic style.  You are invited to judge the results for yourself.

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.
