The Book of Unremitting Horror (d20 version)

ZIP File

Players in horror campaigns are a little too accustomed to the nightmares their characters face; even the most eldritch of tentacular horrors is less intimidating when you know exactly what it is, because your PC has faced it before.

The Soliloquy

New times demand new nightmares. This, therefore, is a book of horrors, not a manual of monsters. The horrors are nightmarishly intimate, often created from human vice, or let loose by human greed. They show us the ugliness that underlies reality. They are the crawling things under the rock of the everyday, sane world. Consequently, we've detailed our creatures in depth.

Each one has its own agenda, its own reason for existence and its own legend. We've made these creatures unusual, frightening and bizarre, yet sufficiently comprehensible that they players realize they are up against something intelligent, if inhuman.

The Book of Unremitting Horror includes thirty creature each with:

  • Diary entries, articles and transcripts
  • A detailed description with behaviour
  • The forensic clues left behind by the creature
  • Details of their history and origins
  • Their special abilities

The Book of Unremitting Horror includes an adventure, The Final Case.

I am not sure what I can add to what has already been said. I love horror games and TBoUH is one of the best source books I have had the pleasure to use in a while. Plenty of ideas here for lots of different games. I like to think of horror as n [...]

The Book of Unremitting Horror presents to fans of horror and GMs alike a collection of horrific creatures designed for use in a mature RPG setting (ideally modern, but could probably be adapted to suit most eras and genres). The layout provides monste [...]

A great collection of unorthodox horrors for your d20 Modern games. You are not going to find creatures like this in other d20 products, very dark and very Barker-like in their implementation. The presentation is such that the book is like an in-game [...]

Interesting book. I liked it. As other reviewers have noted, a number of the monsters (and their traits) will be familiar to anyone who's seen modern horror films - but thats not a bad thing. In my opinion, the monsters are different enough that [...]

The Book of Unremitting Horror is a monster supplement from Pelgrane Press, though calling this book a "monster book" isn?t doing it justice. The zipped file is just over eight megabytes, and has a single PDF. The PDF file has no bookmarks or [...]

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.
