Ultimate Toolbox


Based on the award-winning RPG book Toolbox, the Ultimate Toolbox starts off where the original stopped. Focusing on inspiration, the Ultimate Toolbox is 400 pages of the best charts, tables, and seeds of gaming adventure. From character backgrounds and world building to pirate lore and magical portals, every page is the key to adventure.

Covering seven distinct and ever-important topics, the Ultimate Toolbox is a must for any GM. Whether your games take place in the city, dungeon, wilds, or even at sea, there's a chapter dedicated to it. Even PCs, NPCs, and magical creations get their fair share of attention, as well as advice and charts for building an adventure or campaign from scratch.

Begin your journey now.

This book can be used with any fantasy game system. There are no rules, no powers, no stats of any kind-merely page after page of charts, tables, advice and good solid gaming inspiration. With over 1,000 never-before-seen tables and a fully-loaded index, what else could you ever need?

This really is a remarkable book. Some of the best charts and tables in this genre I’ve ever seen. So useful and creative and fun. BUT, $30 is too much for a PDF for me. I can get plenty a creative goodness here on DT with 30 bucks and get variety. So when I see PDFs that are just too close to hardcover pricing I pass. I mean no disrespect to the level of creativity and the amount of hard work that went into this. Just price it worthy of its medium; it’s a PDF. No shipping, no binding, no warehousing no logistics. I’m downloading it off a hard drive. Your costs are significantly less with a digital product. I feel it can be reflected more in the price. That’s my thoughts. Peace.

I have the original AEG ToolBox from 2002. Is Ultimate Toolbox worth me getting? And why not POD?

I have a physical copy that I bought on eBay. Just looked, there is a copy of one for sale right now.

Why no POD!? I can't do PDF as the PC/Phone strains my eyes. I need the PHYSICAL book!

Same, and paying $30 to $50 for a pdf! Not worth it!

Unfortunately the company told me that they have no intention of ever making this POD or even reprint it.

I see a lot of reviews are several years old and mention a lack of hyperlinks and bookmarks. Is this still the case?

According to the sidebar, the file hasn't been changed since it was uploaded in 2009, so it's safe to assume that hyperlinks and bookmarks are still absent.

Insane. Why is there no print option for this book? Definitely print worthy at 400 pages.

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.
