Monsters from Below, Volume 1



What foulness lurks beneath the surface of your world? From the crafty ratfolk known as the Vermid to the eldritch tentacle beast and the noxious blight flies, enliven your caverns, sewers, and underground tunnels with a host of new monsters and lairs.

Monsters from Below, Vol. 1 includes: 

  • 25 new monsters, featuring original artwork

  • 2 new lairs– short adventures, which can be seamlessly inserted into any standard Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting

  • Lore to help you incorporate the new monsters into your own world

  • Standalone .jpg images of the artwork and maps to print or share on your virtual tabletop

“Monsters from Below is the kind of thing I’d love to see more of out of adventures; something that easily slots into any world, not just the Forgotten Realms, and doesn’t demand much give from the DM’s worldbuilding to do so. These setting agnostic adventure/bestiaries are some of my favorite pickups on the Guild, because I get so much utility out of them as a DM, and—when done right—they cut my prep time for possibly multiple sessions.” Taron ‘Indestructoboy’ Pounds

Amazing book of monsters I will certainly be using in my upcoming campaign. I really love how the stat blocks have the CR posted in the upper right for easy viewing when looking for the right monster for my encounter. The art work looks wonderful and I look forward to describing these monsters to my players and seeing the look on their faces! Best of all this comes with two dungeons that would easily fit into any game. solid 10/10 from me.

I notice that the Aberrant Warlock has misty step listed as a spell under Actions. Should that not be under Bonus Actions?

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.
