MZS3 Claw and Sting


The scorpionfolk of the Maztican Underdark, including of course the tlincalli, the brave imperatontil, the bookish charinti, the vicious and small tree dwelling opistacanthi and the gigantic and prehistoric palophonti!

From beneath the sands they came. First one,
then five, then twenty! Before we knew it we
were surrounded by the half man, half scorpion
monstrosities! The Legion stood strong, but they
just kept coming! I would never have fled the
battle had I not understood Helmsport must be warned!

- Alanza DaNosta acting General of the Golden Legion 

1364 DR the Year of the Wave

The Underdark of Maztica is a hidden world unknown to even the most intrepid explorers. It is the demesne of the creatures known alternately as scorpionfolk, scorpionmen, manscorpions or to others as the tlincalli.  This sourcebook is dedicated to exploring their world, including their religion, their history, related creatures and of course their unique sacrifical magic and grafts!

Are there any stats made up for these? They seem really cool, so I'd like to be able to use them in a campaign.

If you are referring to the subraces of scorpionfolk - yes. They are upcoming in a new bestiary coming out (very) soon. The stats are all done - I am just waiting for my artist to finish a few pieces. If it takes too long there will be a WIP put up (for $0 obviously).

Rules Edition(s)
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.
