Saurian, an Original Race for D&D 5e


Thought lost to history, or myths to begin with, by most civilized people, the Saurian are an ancient race with physical similarities to the behemoths of D&D worlds. To hear the Saurian tell it, they are the eldest race of the material plane and ruled the world for ages with strength and wisdom. A cataclysm in their past caused them to lose their grasp on the younger races and as fewer and fewer Saurian children were born, they eventually were left with few remaining enclaves hidden in remote regions of the world.

Divided into castes by ancient tradition and isolated from the rest of the world the Saurian are at a turning point in their history - cling to their past until the bitter end or strike out into the world and forge a new path.

Included in the Saurian race are seven subraces: Ankylos, Deinony, Plesios, Pteradas, Sarchos, Triceras, and Tyrannos. As of April 2019, this product also includes 2 racial feats!

This content includes a full color document & a printer friendly B&W document.

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.
