In the worlds of Dungeons & Dragons the dead walk among the living. There are hundreds of types of undead creatures. Some were risen by necromancers, other returned to the parody of life due to a curse, an ancient artifact or a god’s will. Some are aware of the world. Others are passive automatons. Although commonly encountered skeletons or zombie usually aren’t very dangerous for adventurers, some undead creatures are really powerful and dangerous beings. From cut-off vampire hands, to gargantuan monsters made of a dozen fused skeletons, to an undead medusa, the un-living are a powerful tool in the DM’s hand. 

The Skeletons bestiary expands upon undead lore and mechanics found in the Monster Manual and helps you introduce these creatures into your campaigns. This supplement offers 30 new undead creatures, each with their own interesting backstory.

The adversaries come in three different categories:

  • Interesting takes on low CR undead monsters that are perfect for new and experienced players
  • Brand new undead creatures to challenge and frighten characters of all levels
  • Powerful undead villains with unique backstories that can serve as the Big Bad Evil Guy for an adventure arc or the whole campaign

To use this supplement you need only the Player’s Handbook or D&D Basic Rules.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
