Darkthan's Action-Oriented Bestiary: Monsters of the Alleyways


Better Monsters Make Better Cities

Monsters are one of the most important aspects of any Dungeons and Dragons campaign, comprising one-third of the core rules and inspiring many players to take up the art of DMing. This book hopes to inspire a new generation of DMs to start their journeys and to give experienced DMs a new set of beasties to throw at their players.

Within this book you’ll find over 40 revised monsters from the core rules, unique threats from the mind of the author, and iconic creatures from older editions that can’t be found in modern products, starting with four new bandits, and ending with three new vampires, including new rules for playing a vampire character.

If you find yourself in need of new, exciting monsters to place throughout your back alleyways, sprawling sewers, and sacred locations, look no further than Darkthan’s Action-Oriented Bestiary.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
