For the Discerning Dungeon Master

Looking to build a more dangerous lair? These pages contain 50 dire traps, ready for your use in your 5th Edition Roleplaying Game, and the rules to build countless more. Featuring the same custom trap system seen in the Total Party Kill Handbook to let you easily build the trap you want for heroes from levels 1 to 20, the Trap Compendium adds new components, extra upgrades, and unique perils the like of which you've never seen before.

Assail heroes with rolling boulders that spew fire as they go, fill corridors with webbing before unleashing swarms of poisonous spiders, or telekinetically hurl trespassers into spheres of annihilation.

The traps herein offer true challenges for your players that will make even the heartiest hero think twice before rushing in unprepared.

Is there a Pathfinder version of this? Or would I need to convert it to Pathfinder myself?

Does this book have a table of contents? Would it be too much of a spoiler to ask for it to be added to the preview?

Would you be willing to put up a preview for this? I’m interested, but I’d like to glance at it to make sure it’s a good fit for my table before pulling the trigger.

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.
