Benefactors come in all shapes and sizes and everyone can use a helping hand once in a while. Sometimes, however, your benefactor can become your "Big Bad."

Detailed in this work are entities who can offer benefits to a party of adventurers in the short or long term, but who can also transform into a formidable villain, providing conflict, intrigue, and excitement for any type of campaign. Included are 20 unique stat blocks and 18 separate maps!

Each “BeneBad” has:

  • A full-page piece of art
  • Detailed history and description
  • A secret agenda
  • Group patron perks
  • Known associates
  • And a number of quests and other adventure seeds to get your creative juices flowing!
  • Maps of their stronghold or lair. Separate VTT-ready files are included, created with Dungeon Alchemist, and feature native files for Fantasy Grounds Unity, Roll20, and Foundry!
  • Sample pages from the first 4 BenebadsSample pages from the second 4 Benebads

Good ! Just bought it :-)
Is there a way to get an email or some kind of notification when you add a chapter ?

I believe the site sends an email when updates are made, but you may have to opt in for that notification. You can also follow me on Twitter at TuckerAuthor.

Best guess at this point is late March/early April

It's a secret! ;-) Seriously though, I have several ideas which include a hag coven, dragons, and a magic university—so I'm not sure which might come first. I may also have some other writers come on board, depending on how well this does, so stay tuned and spread the word!

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.
