Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed


NOTE: The contents of this book are updated in Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved, available on this site.

The 3rd Edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game has thrilled hundreds of thousands. But surely there’s more to fantasy than the traditional elves, dwarves, fighters, and wizards. What if there were a whole new player’s handbook, presented just like the original, but with different character classes, races, skills, feats, and spells?

You’ve Got It!

  • This variant player’s handbook from 3rd Edition codesigner Monte Cook features:
  • 9 new PC races, like giants and the lionlike litorians, plus humans;
  • 11 new classes, such as witches, mage blades, and the unfettered;
  • Hundreds of skills, feats, and spells;
  • And variant rules for handling magic and combat

“No question about it, Monte Cook's Arcana Unearthed is a knockout!” —Gary Gygax

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.
