OBE: Races of the Shroud for D&D 4E: The Apelord


The apelords, once savage apes living in the frozen forests of the North, were changed by the mists of the Shroud forever, giving them the minds of men. Now nomads, they wander the Shroud and beyond, their home forests overrun by the living dead.

Inside this PDF you’ll find a complete player race for Dungeons & Dragons Fourth Edition, along with six racial feats you can use to go ape. You’ll also find several monster entries, from the wandering nomads of the apelord tribes, their guardians and leaders, and the vile undead corruptions of their ancestors and fallen warriors (ranging from levels 4 to 9), and finishing out with a full page of adventure ideas for bringing the tribes of the ape into your game!

As a fan of Planet of the Apes, Gorilla Grodd, and Grommam, I've always like ape-men. The Apelord by One Bad Egg intrigued me as soon as I saw it on drivethrurpg. Since I'm currently running 4E and not playing, I put off purchasing it for a long time. [...]

This product was one of the first 4E .pdfs I purchased. I liked the primal feel of the race from other reviews, and believe that One Bad Egg creatively infused this interesting, intelligent race with crunch to compliment the fluff. My gaming group adde [...]

The company's name may be One Bad Egg, but The Apelord is one good product, a good model for what creative third parties can do to extend D&D 4e. The first quarter of the PDF provides D&D players with a new PC race, the apelord, fully supported [...]

October has finally arrived, and as the 4e GSL goes live the first of the 3rd party support products for the new 4e GSL have started to appear on the market. As can be expected both old and new publishers are signing up to the 4e GSL, and one such new [...]

Wow -- I'm glad to see the 3rd party 4e market get off to such a sterling start! I've been playing D&D in various forms for almost 30 years and I've become pretty jaded about such things, especially after the glut of mediocre-to-useless stuff that [...]

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.
