Are You Ready To Rock and Gnoll!

Not Another Monster Quest Volume #2: Orcs, Gnolls, & Minotaurs

The world of Dungeons & Dragons has so many fascinating creatures to explore and interact with, but more often than not, those creatures labeled as “monstrous” are seen as nothing more than a bag of experience points for adventurers to carve through in their quest to further expand and explore the world around them. Very rarely are these creatures presented in a positive light, and even more rarely as individuals with their own stories to tell. This disconnect is further widened by the ability for players to create characters from these so called “monstrous” races, often labeling player characters as “outcasts” or individuals who were able to “break free” of their monstrous origins and find a more civilized way of being. 

With Not Another Monster Quest, we seek to showcase these “monstrous” races in a wide spectrum of colors and personality types, not just automatically quantifying them as evil because of how they look or their background. “Evil” is not something that should be prescribed to an entire race of beings with a handful of them, usually player characters, being quantified as “good.” Just as in our world, theirs is filled with people of every size, shape, color, class, and creed, and that should not be dictated by the ancestry that they were born into. In these pages you will find slap-stick gnoll comedians, masterful minotaur entertainers, and world-weary orc explorers to help enrich your world and stories. So, we invite you to turn the page and step into a world filled with possibilities and wonder, as we break the mold, delving further into how we define these “monstrous” characters.

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.
