Blood Spawn (Birthright 2e)


Blood Spawn: Creatures of Light and Shadow is a collection of monsters and adventures for the Birthright campaign setting. Far more than just a Monstrous Compendium volume, Blood Spawn is two accessories in one:

  • The creature listings offer more than a dozen new monsters designed specifically for the Birthright world. Some of the denizens haunt the Shadow World, others populate the waking world of Cerilia - and a few have infiltrated both realms.
  • The adventures provide a means of introducing these new creatures into your campaign. Each scenario features monsters from the book. By completing these scenarios, player characters have the opportunity to gain experience in the Shadow World and learn to penetrate its illusions.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

Isn't it a bit weird that a free download is now for sale?
Was it edited, corrected or otherwise improved for this offering?

Is this a completely new product? I don't recall this from the 2e era.

I noticed that after the fact. It's just odd I don't remember it.

It was never released in print. It was abandoned when they cancelled the Birthright line, but was eventually released for free online along with Book of Regency and other items never published.

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.
