Castles & Crusades: Monstrous Menaces #5: Chupacabra, Felpha, and Olgoi-Khorkhoi


Adventure Games Publishing presents the fifth in a series of new monsters for the Castles & Crusades Castle Keeper to populate his dungeons and wilderness. Each installment of the Monstrous Menaces series presents three new monsters for a mere dollar, eminently affordable in today's economy.

The fifth installment, Monstrous Menaces #5: Chupacabra, Felpha, and Olgoi-Khorkhoi, presents the Castle Keeper with a 3 HD Monstrous Humanoid, a 5 HD Aberration, and a 1 to 6 HD Magical Beast. Each entry includes complete listings for the monster's description, organization, ecology, treasure, range, and special abilities.

A chupacabra is a small humanoid creature, about the size of a halfling or goblin, with lizard and canine-like features that much resemble that of a kobold (though there is no relation between chupacabras and kobolds). Chupacabras have large, dull black eyes, gray to green skin, and large clawed hands and feet, though these last are relatively weak and are not used in combat. A long row of sharp spines runs down its back; again, these serve to make the creature look more fearsome, but do not serve any useful purpose.

This creature takes the form of a three-foot diameter, pinkish-tan, warty fleshy sphere, looking not unlike the hairless skin of a human sans muscle and bone, blown up with hot air - a balloon made of human flesh, essentially. It has five human-like, ugly, pinched, and androgynous faces, each facing a different direction along the equator of its body, each complete with two eyes, nose, fang-filled mouth, chin, and two ears. A thick cluster of dozens of five-foot long tentacles depend from the bottom, each ending in a trio of finger-like pincers.

Otherwise known as the Death Worm, this giant worm-like creature is actually distantly related to the caecilians, and thus an amphibian of sorts, though through magical mutation it possesses abilities more like that of a reptile. Death Worms range in length from six inches to 30 feet, being six inches long per hit point, and one-tenth their length in diameter.

They are limbless, and they appear to be segmented, like a worm, as their serpentine body is divided by ring-shaped folds; thus the confusion as to its true nature, as it physically resembles a giant worm. Its head is covered with thick, bony plates that it uses to push through soil and even stone with greater ease; these open wide in a four-pointed star fashion, almost like razor-sharp mandibles, to reveal its fanged maw. Coloration is a brick to scarlet red, with the bony head and fangs pure white.

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.
