In 2011, 4 Winds Fantasy Gaming released the Tome of Monsters for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game System. If there is one thing that I really love its monster books. That is why I worked with Stefen Styrsky and Tricky Owlbear Publishing to create Forgotten Foes. However, it seems that a lot of monsters that get created never make it into the games of our fellow gamemasters. The Tome of Monster Encounters (TOME, for sort) is our attempt to correct that problem. 

TOME: A Whale of a Problem is a single encounter designed for use with thirteenth level player characters. It follows the same format as our Encounter Pages series and features:

  • An encounter for 13th level characters
  • Updated statistics for the abaia from the Tome of Monsters
  • Porphyran racial characteristics for fetchlings
  • Information to set this encounter within the Sea of Ithreia near the Barony of Thuthon

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.
