The Lazy GM: Dungeon Beasts for 5th Edition


The Lazy GM brings our classic range of ready-made monsters to 5th Edition.

Within are hundreds of stat-blocks for thirty nine classic monsters, from Aboleth to Xorn, with a range of builds to suit all challenge levels. Using the freedom and flexibility of the 5th Edition, building on our earlier work, we bring updated versions of old favourites like the Manticore Mercenary, Otyugh Crime Lord and the Tiny Mimic, and bring all new exciting foes like the Jack O’ The Green, Gold Xorn Transmuter, and the Kumo Forest Spider Shaman.

Inside you’ll find extraplanar variants, environmental variants, fey versions, undead versions, half-dragons and a whole host of unique twists on classic D&D monsters, all ready to drop straight into your game.

From the CR 1/8 Zombie Rat to the CR 23 Epic Purple Worm, fully clickable index cross-referenced by CR, templates and monster roles to easily find what you need.

Since this is a 5e product please remove the tags labeling it for old school DnD, Pathfinder, and any other system you've tagged it for other than 5e

Same old story, authors putting inaccurate labels only to get indexed more. What a scam.

Thanks for pointing this out. I used a template from an older product to set up the listing and thought I'd unchecked inappropriate tags but must gave missed some. No intentional scam intended, I assure you.

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.
