Monsters Unleashed


It's good to be bad.

Sometimes in roleplaying games you want to play a party of heroic adventurers, exploring the world, looting dungeons, slashing monsters and generally defending the world against the armies of darkness (a generic kind, not a zombie one under copyright). Other times, you want to be that darkness.

Every once in a while it’s fun to play the horrors that all the other adventurers fear. Or maybe you just look like those horrors but on the inside, you’re just as confused and messed up as the rest of the them.

This supplement provides six new races for players (or NPCs) in your D&D campaigns: fledgling vampires, flesh golems, ghosts, lycanthropes, medusa half-bloods and trollkin. Unlike the traditional races available all of these are of a monstrous nature, usually found in as antagonists in gothic horror or ancient myths as opposed to begin protagonist adventurers.

The second half of this supplement is a one-shot adventure, Breaking Out!, which was originally designed for playtesting the new races and is included for your enjoyment!

A balanced array of monstrous creatures to play as, without any being too overpowered that it would make the game unappealing. I believe they can make a very interesting party addition, or even make for peculiar NPC's in a one shot or a campaign. I'm [...]

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.
