Monster Perks!


 Monster-Expanding templates bring new powers and plot-supporting themes to your D&D monsters!
Simple, clear rules apply templates to any creature, from the lowly goblin to the mighty balor.
Each template has two versions, a foot soldier and a boss. Bosses have powers that synergize with their foot soldiers, making each encounter surprising and dynamic for your players.
The templates are:

  • Astral Invader: teleporting beasts from the Astral Plane
  • Bestial Ravager: powerful hunters that hide and rage
  • Burrower: masters of the ambush
  • Jumper: strong-legged beasts that jump and kick
  • Prehensile-tailed: stinging tails and poisonous quills
  • Preternatural Illusionist: shadowcasting masters of magic
  • Putrescent: vile gelatinous engulfers
  • Spined: ranged quill attacks with powerful scent
  • Undead Thrall: biting beasts that frighten and charm
  • Void Harbinger: exploding creatures from between the stars

These templates are a game-changer, bringing your encounters to a whole new level. Simply a must for DMs seeking new combat options.

One of the things I miss the most about earlier editions of D&D is the use of templates to switch up a monster stat block easily. Chad and Blaise have really hit it out of the park with this one, bringing back all the juicy goodness of the old temp [...]

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.
