Awakened Animal Adventurers


Why play a tabaxi when you can play a panther? Why settle for riding a pony when you can be one yourself?

Awakened Animal Adventurers gives you 30 beast or plant options—all the Small and Medium ones that appear in the Basic Rules—to choose from instead of a fantasy race. Each comes with a 1st-level pregen character.

The awaken spell is a 5th-level bard or druid spell that gives an animal or plant sentience, a language, and (for plants) the ability to move. This supplements imagines that some of those awakened creatures become adventurers and puts options in the hands of players to make that happen.

The options presented here are rebalanced and presented in the same format as chapter 1 of Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse. The new options include the following:

  • badger, giant
  • bear
  • beetle, giant fire
  • boar
  • centipede, giant
  • deer
  • deinonychus
  • dog
  • eagle
  • frog, giant
  • fungus, violet
  • goat
  • hawk, blood
  • hyena
  • jackal
  • mule
  • octopus
  • panther
  • pony
  • pteranodon
  • rat, giant
  • shark, reef
  • shrieker
  • shrub
  • snake, giant venomous
  • snake, giant wolf
  • vulture
  • wasp, giant
  • wolf

Blood hawk entry with accompanying pregen character, Screech

Goat entry with accompanying 1st-level pregen character, Hex

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.
