In cursed lands, forgotten tombs, and ancient temples to dead gods, the undead hold court, waiting to fell any traveller foolish enough to venture beyond the world of the living.

You are not like the others, however. Though your curse may be the same, within your mind dwells a shadow of the mortal soul you once had, a glimmer of hope, a flicker of self awareness. Your former life is over, the lands and loves you have known as dead and buried as you should have been.

And yet, you live on. Who raised you? What did they raise you for? And for what greater purpose do you continue to struggle, even after death has claimed you as its own?

The Awakened Undead Character Race includes rules for playing undead characters of all descriptions, from lowly skeletons to ravenous ghouls, spectral ghosts, vengeful revenants, and cursed mummies. This race utilizes who you were in a past life to continue to color your character, and unifies all awakened undead under a series of shared character traits.

Will you attempt to rebuild what was lost, or seek retribution against those that took it from you? Will you strike forward as a mournfully misunderstood hero, or a vile, wholly-justified villain?

Your life is over now, and who you were no longer defines you. Now, who will you become?

Hey, kinda confused about the inheriting from your living race. You only specify that you don't get the subraces abilities, does this mean if i were a tiefling skeleton I would get the core tiefling's Hellish Resistance and Infernal Legacy

The Past Life feature specifies what you get from the race you choose, which is limited to size, height, and land movement speed. Any other traits beyond these are lost when you die and become undead.

Been playing a Skeleton from this brew for like 5 months. Love this brew and it gets better and better with each update!

All the stuff you make is great, seriously. But uhh, is there a reason it's just images and not a pdf I can copy-paste from?

Unfortunately, that's side-effect of the method I use for making PDFs. Not much that can be done that I haven't tried. =(

That's why I typically include printsafe/selectable files alongside, to allow for copy-pasting into character sheets and similar.

Oh, I hadn't noticed the printsafe version. Delightful! Thank you~

No problem! The printsafe files are a fairly new development, so it's entirely reasonable to have not seen them. =)

Not to be mean but this is kind of lazily done and awful for any sort of play compared to content I've seen elsewhere on here depicting undead races. Not to mention the suggested buying price being 3.50? and only for like 4 subpar races that take no inspiration from the source material or use any statistical information for these creatures.

...ouch? That's pretty scathing. I've heard mostly positive feedback in other quarters, which is why this surprises me.

This is the fourth iteration of this material, and it has gone through multiple rounds of feedback and playtesting. The point of balance is Volo's races, as undead are "monster" races themselves.

I'm mostly confused on the claim that these draw no inspiration from the source material, as I actively adapted several abilities present in the Monster Manual versions of these creatures. Could you elaborate?

I always try and fix or modify my content if there are balance concerns, and having more to go off of would help me to do that.

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.
