The Quintessential Kobold

Watermarked PDF

Whether you are a Games Master who wants to add depth to his monsters or a player wishing to try something a little different, the Quintessential Kobold contains all you will need to expand on one of the most widely used monsters in the d20 universe. 1st level adventurers beware; the kobolds are about to bite back Cowardly, dog faced and weak! You think you know the kobold? Think again! For years low-level adventurers have wondered the deep dark searching for treasure in hidden vaults. Their main adversary has been the kobold, the lurking dweller in the depths. These savage creatures must rely on sheer weight in number to vanquish even the weakest foe and then celebrate by consuming the flesh of their enemies. That is, until now…

The Quintessential Kobold contains a wealth of information detailing kobold history, traditions, resources and magic. Expand the depth of this tenacious enemy and learn of the four kobold ancestors, who set very different rules for generations to follow. Play as a hardy kobold guardian, sly harrier or even a festering rat brother, the choice is yours. Inside are a wealth of character concepts and prestige classes to choose from including dragon shadow, awakener and master of the pit.

Learn to use equipment such as the dragon breather and master new kobold fighting techniques like the Knee-Cutter. Those with a more magical bent can learn how to use the dread power of blood magic but beware; to raise the power of blood comes at a high price. Never before has the kobold been covered in such detail, no longer will he act as slave and underdog. Look out, for the kobolds are about to rise, and they are thirsty for revenge.

overall, very cool, though it does mirror some "slayers guide to kobolds" stuff. i've always liked these little guys, and i like the idea of using them as pc's and giving them some background. [...]

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.
