The First Gate: A Menagerie of Madness (Storytellers Edition)

Selected Option:

Storytellers Edition comes with downloadable handout pdfs of classes, subclasses, playable species, spells, and magic items list all to help you with your games and to allow you more control over what your players see.

The Hardcover book is premium color print, and you can add the digital content to it if you want the full experience.

If you would prefer the standard edition it is also available as well and is listed under "The First Gate: A Menagerie of Madness (Standad Edition)"

Contained in this tome of "OMG WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ" called The First Gate: A Menagerie of Madness you will find a plethora of new content and maybe some things you have already seen on my KoFi and DriveThruRPG. Those releases are but teasers for the true main course that this book represents and if I'm being honest with myself I got a bit impatient so I released them anyway (The Horror Warlock Subclass is one such release that will appear in this book.)

We will have new playable species/subspecies, subclasses, a brand new class with truly unique abilities, Monsters, NPC's, Lore, and much more all packed into this 176 page book that is available in both physcial and digital format.

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.
