A print on demand of this book would be amazing. Any chance of that?

Wizards of the Coast/DTRPG decide which products will be available as POD on the DMG. However, I've requested for these books to be available as POD.

This is really awesome work and perfect for spicing up encounters! Letting the druid summon a blood elemental instead of a water elemental is so much fun (for me) :D well done!

Hi. I'm running a campaign in a Ravenloft style setting with some very competent players currently around 13th level. One of the problems I'm having is making challenging enough encounters. Does this book have many creatures from CR 13 upwards? Thanks!

I don't know if there's a better way to send this kind of feedback, but I don't think there's a "contact the author" button or anything anywhere.

Anyway - The Coin Golem makes three greatsword attacks - except it's only valid option is Slam.

Is it playtested properly?

I have designed and converted the monsters to the best of my ability, but I can't guarantee that they are perfectly balanced for two reasons: Challenge ratings in 5e are only a guideline and influenced by many factors such as party composition. Furthermore, the book contains 300+ monsters, and I do not have the resources to playtest every single one extensively.

I am about to use a bit of this bestiary in my resurrected 2e material campaign, so I'll be happy to report back. At first glance, the monsters I am pulling out of this bestiary look to be on-point in their conversions.

Lennart - any chance of adding some of the additional beasts (namely the two types of "Brothers" [ancient dead] from *Neither Man Nor Beast*?). I appreciate the Soul Kraken and Broken Ones being converted though!

+1 for the printer friendly version.
This book is incredible, but I'll have to print it out to use it.

Great job. One Question occured to me. You mention a Wraith king in the creature by CR list, but I can't seem to find it. Did I miss it?

It seems like I mixed that up with the king wight. I'll add a king wraith in the next version. :)

Try this alternative link. It links to the full-size PDF preview: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qon2quws5oyh2qh/RLB_195699-sample.pdf?dl=0

Please let me know whether or not it works for you. I'll also contact support to get this sorted out.

Any chance you could do a printer friendly version for your bestiaries without the grey background and black borders?
Customer avatar

Definitely! I'll add one within the next couple of days.

Format
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.
