Torzael's Guide to the Insectfolk


Deep within the caverns under your very feet lives an entire race of insectfolk who had disappeared for centuries, until now. A wall of their grand, secluded kingdom has just been knocked down by unknown forces, revealing them to the world above. Few scholars have found any remnants from the insectfolk's past, only small bits and pieces of folklore that were passed down and twisted by the generations since. Although he believes more to exist, the druidic explorer Torzael has documented five unique races that live in unison in walls of the catacombs between Waterdeep and Skullport.

  • Dustkin: the leaping and striking insectfolk; inspired by fleas and aphids.
  • Flutterkin: the stealthy aerial acrobatic insectfolk; inspired by moths and butterflies.
  • Liftkin: the small but strong insectfolk that always have a hand to spare; inspired by ants.
  • Puncturekin: the mesmerizing humanoid insectfolk with barbs on their foreheads; inspired by scorpions.
  • Underkin: the heavyset burrowers and builders of the insectfolk; inspired by beetles.


  • Updated format and minor wording corrections.

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.
