The Baatezu in the Details: Make Believable Dungeons – LITE


This is the free version of The Baatezu in the Details: Make Believable Dungeons. This version contains all the explanations, but lacks all the monster tables. For the complete monster tables get the full version.

Let's say

  • you create a dungeon, and
  • you want to populate it with monsters.

Chapter One: Choose your monsters.

Your monsters can be

  • either native to the dungeon,
  • or guests in the dungeon,
  • or uniquely explained by the story/quest.

Chapter Two: Find more monsters.

Your chosen monster might have

  • a boss,
  • some friends,
  • or some minions

in the dungeon. Look up your monster in the table and find more monsters.

Chapter Three: Place physical clues in your dungeon.

The monsters can leave clues behind thanks to

  • their bodily functions,
  • their technology,
  • their prey.

Look up your monster in the table to find clues to place in the environment.

Chapter Four: Place news in your quest.

The news of the monsters can travel

  • through their actions in society,
  • through the behavior of their neighboring monsters,
  • through the retelling of survivors of their attacks.

Helpful monsters might even rat out other monsters. Look up your monster in the table to place news of your monster in your quest.

Still not sure?

  • In the complete version these explanations are followed by tables that include every monster from the Monster Manual.
  • If this becomes successful, I'll add more monsters from other publications.

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.
