RPG Creatures - Bestiary 1 (Extended Edition)

Suggested Price $9.50

This book contains 54* original creatures, made primarily for fantasy role-playing games. Unlike many other manuals of monsters, the artwork in this book has been given a major role.

Every creature is professionally illustrated and occupies a full color page for visual presence. The statistics are system-independent, easily understood, and the descriptions are imaginative and thorough.

This resource was created to enrich the games, campaigns, and settings of those who seek new and inspiring creatures for their rpg experience, but non-gaming fans of fantasy monsters and imaginary life-forms are also likely to find this book rewarding.

(This is an interactive eBook. The Table of Contents is thumbnailed and linked directly to the illustrations and descriptions of the creatures. The TOC is also swiftly accessed from most pages of the book.)


*The PDF was updated 12th of September 2012, and is now an extended version of the original publication. It has grown from 50 to 54 original creatures, and ten extra pages.

Years ago I was supporting this project when it was a paid email subscription. I was also able to get in on the Lulu POD of this title. The creatures themselves have not made their way into any of my games. I was looking at a few of them before writing [...]

A system-neutral-ish monster-book that hides a wealth of monstrous eye candy behind its blah title. This 54-deep array is the work of Nicholas Cloister, who brings the triple threat of author-artist-designer like some Jaquaysian upstart. Each illo is [...]

Great tool for any GM that wants to add unique well illustrated and thought our monsters to their campaign. Keeps the PC's guessing. [...]

RPG Creatures is such an amazing book that as a DM, you'll be faced with a tough choice: how many monsters can I incorporate, without turning the adventure into a giant monster hunt. Every creature is unique, not only in appearance (some are qu [...]

This product features some incredible art, and the majority of creatures are very unique. Designed to be ported into any game, the basic descriptions break down each creature's powers, as well as a scale for their physical/mental attributes. This is pr [...]

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.
