Bodies and Souls: 20 Templates

ZIP File

"Bodies and Souls: 20 Templates" provides 20 creature templates for the d20 system; it's a strange mix of horror, comic book, and B sci-fi movie creatures that can fit in a variety of settings, from fantasy to far future. It includes possessions, arcane diseases and corruptions, and mystical powers. Several of the templates have special rules for application to player characters to smooth out the problems that typically crop up when allowing players to take templates.

A preview is now available at Second World Simulations

A diverse grab-bag of excellent templates for various genres. Some are designed with sci fi or modern campaigns, but most can be used with nearly any setting with a little work. Tres Excellent. [...]

I have to say this is a most impressive work. Easily the best, most imaginative use of the templates concept I have yet seen in a d20 book. I have to say I am not the biggest fan of templates. With the ability to add class levels to monsters, [...]

Original electronic
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.
