Go ape! Apes of Nature, Myth, & the Imagination takes you on an exploration of the world of apes, journeying from the ancient to the modern world, from pre-history to the 19th-century exploration of Central Africa and the Far East, with stops in the fields of cryptozoology, mythology, fiction, and fantasy. Along the way, you will encounter a number of curious beasts, and find:

• Stats and descriptions for 22 types of ape, with Challenge Ratings ranging from 1/2 to 72,
• 6 new character races,
• Stats and a description of Nzumi the Ape God and his ape religion,
• A new domain and 2 new spells,
• 37 high-quality illustrations,
• Scale diagrams comparing animal sizes to humans and halflings,
• Genuine excerpts from real medieval bestiaries,
• Tales, true stories, and legends about the various ape species, and
• Many other elements designed to entertain, educate, and give Games Masters greater insight into how to use these creatures in their campaigns.

Good book it certainly covers the topic at hand very well. I've been a fan of apes related fiction as long as i can recall (kong, mighty joe young, planet of the apes) and this book easily draws on the appeal for the topic I have and adds to it. Lots [...]

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.
