Monster Modifier

“You see a lumbering, 9-foot-tall humanoid, lurching towards you. It's hunched over at the shoulders, it’s arms nearly dragging the ground. Its rubbery skin is the color of green moss, and it has tufts of greenish- black hair....â€

“It’s a Troll -- everybody break out your fire attacks...â€

How many times has this happened to you?

Monsters should give the players a thrilling encounter, but it’s incredibly difficult to convey a fear of the unknown when your players have had the usual assortment of monsters memorized for a decade or more.

That’s where this product comes in.

To modify any creature, take the basic stat block of any monster, and then roll on the tables provided herein. The Monster Modifier creates a one-of-a-kind template which is then immediately applied to a creature, creating a brand-new monster.

Before long, when their characters encounter a monster, the reaction you hear from your players won’t be a knowing recitation of the monster’s stats, abilities and weaknesses....but rather:

“What the heck is that thing?â€

“What do we do?â€

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.
