Ophidian Officine


In this compendium, we delve into the enigmatic and fascinating world of the Snaketongue – a race of serpentine beings whose origins, motives, and methods are as diverse as the scales on their backs. Whether you call them Snaketongues or by another name in your realm, this resource is dedicated to bringing these creatures to life in your campaign, providing you with a wealth of information to enhance your gaming experience.

At the heart of this book lies a background that not only enriches the Snaketongue's culture but also serves as a versatile foundation for characters of any race. This background is especially well-suited to the Snaketongue's cunning and scheming nature, making it an ideal choice for players who wish to explore the depths of deception and subterfuge that these creatures embody.

Beyond the background, this tome presents several of unique creatures that inhabit the Snaketongue's world, each with detailed descriptions, intriguing lore, and custom stat blocks to challenge and captivate players of various levels.

To further enhance your campaign, we've also included 3 ranger subclasses, one tailored to fit the theme of the Snaketongue, providing an exciting array of options for characters who wish to adopt the ways of these mysterious beings.

The Ophidian Officine is a hidden, sinister temple inhabited by a dangerous Snaketongue cult. Designed for level 8-10 characters, this dungeon features treacherous encounters and dark secrets, culminating in a battle against the cult's High Priest. Players must thwart the cult's plans before ancient serpentine powers are unleashed upon the world.

We invite you to dive into the shadows and slither through the secrets of the Snaketongue, as you unravel the intricate web of their schemes and discover the rich tapestry of their culture. May this volume serve as a guide and an inspiration for countless adventures within the world of these enigmatic serpentine beings.

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.
