Octavirate Games presents Creature Weekly, a pack of new monsters available for download each Wednesday. Need new challenges, adversaries and allies? We have you covered. Each entry is illustrated and features variant rules support and genre adjustment information so you can easily fit the creatures into your campaign, whether it is set in the wilds of a medieval empire, the streets of a modern metropolis or the depths of far-flung space.

Volume Three features eight creatures and variants, including the headless acephali, a race of monstrous humanoids with their faces in their chests; the lemurians, a lost branch of humanity with unique adaptations for their men and women; the oklod, strange creatures deserve strange riding beasts, and the crustacean oklod fits the bill; the synaltren, a horrible two-headed reptile that drains heat with one breath weapon in order to spew it with the other; the emulock template, once constructs of order these mechanoid imitations of ordinary creatures have fallen into chaos; and the slythh, a race of outsiders that manifested the ultimate chaotic mutation: an orderly nature, and spun off from the realms of chaos.

As a bonus, this PDF includes write-ups for two demi-planes: Tumultus (home of the emulocks) and Assymbex (home of the slythh).

This 20 page PDF provides you not only with an average creature entry length of two pages and multiple template examples. It gives you all the variant rules support you need to take the creatures out of the usual fantasy settings and place them in any d20 game you want. Each entry includes variant rules information for easy genre adaptation: Wounds/Vitality, sanity loss, massive damage threshold, defense bonus variant, armor as damage reduction, 3.0/Modern damage reduction, honor taint and allegiances are all supported alongside the standard 3.5 rules set.

Creature Weekly gives you more menace for your monster and the weekly release schedule ensures you will always have something new to challenge your players.

Now in print-friendly portrait layout.

Don't forget to check out the demo and behold the full fury of the synaltren.

Once again I will look at these 5 monsters and rate each of them as useful to me or not and then total that as a mark out of 5. Acephalos - Although the art makes the creature seem unique to my world, I do not have a place for them in my game. [...]

Again more templates and monsters. The main template in this volume seems to have an Eberron twist to it. Aside from this, nothing spectacular. One can never have too many monsters. The planar information might be useful to those whose players are [...]

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.
