The Bolstered Bestiary: Rogues

Suggested Price $2.99

The Bolstered Bestiary is a miniature monster manual that expands on the existing slew of monsters found across 5th Edition.  Providing adversaries with more diverse skillsets and challenge ratings that give any adventuring party a run for their money.  This latest release puts a focus on everyone's favorite backstabbers: The Rogues.

What this document contains: 

29 Creature Statblocks that elaborate on the roguish adversaries found in the Monster Manual and Volos'.  Consisting of: 

  • 3 versions of the Archer.
  • 3 versions of the Assassin.
  • 5 versions of the Bandit.
  • 4 versions of the Scout.
  • 3 versions of the Spy.
  • 4 versions of the Swashbuckler.
  • 3 versions of the Thief.
  • and 4 versions of the Thug.

Creator's Note: I was inspired to make this after realizing the lack of diversity among the various "human" enemies in 5th edition.  Many monsters have such a narrow window for use that it can feel restrictive at times.  I hope you all enjoy this.  I'll welcome any feedback or criticism.  If there's any category of creatures you'd like me to tackle next, feel free to let me know.  Happy Gaming!

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.
