ARCADIA | Issue 12 | Roll20



ARCADIA 12 is here! This issue contains the following three articles and has a cover from Martin Sobr.

Compendium Expansion: So Your Best Friend Is a Monster by Jessica Marcrum. You know how sometimes the characters make friends with a monster and instead of battling to the death, they decide to save the creature? Or you know how sometimes you can turn into a half-spider demon after, say, pissing off a certain eight-legged goddess? Well we got you covered! This article presents rules for uncursing driders, harpies, and medusas and turning them back into humanoids plus rollable tables for generating quick and dirty curses. Artist Credits: Elisa Serio

Compendium Expansion: Fey of the Shadowfell by Jonathan Connor Self. This article gives you new dark fey creatures to add to your game. When fey move to the Shadowfell, whimsy and passion can turn to pain and rage. These creatures make excellent villains and NPCs for your next adventure! Say hello to new hags and fomorians and unique creatures like the bogie and lubberkin. Artist Credits: Faizal Fikri, Zuzanna Wuzyk

Addon Adventure: The Stuff of Nightmares by Carlos Cisco. Run one of these two nightmare encounters and your characters won’t take long rests for granted again! If they dare to stay at the Helm Street Inn, they’ll find the murderous Glass Ghost stalks their dreams. When a hypnagoug crosses their path, they’ll have to act fast or become the first victims of an aberration that uses their energy to tear into our reality. Artist Credits: Gustavo Pelissari

Compendium Expansion: The Dimensions of Dowda by Robert J. Kuntz. You get a bonus article in this issue! We're presenting a magic item with adventure inside for the first edition of the game. Dowda's Lantern contains an entire secret dimension. Defeat the item's four challenges, and it's power is yours. A conversion guide for using this article with fifth edition rules is included. Artist Credits: Nick De Spain

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.
