"Go tell Mankind, that there are Devils and Witches; and that tho those night-birds least appear where the Day-light of the Gospel comes, yet New-Engl. has had Exemples of their Existence and Operation."

- Revd. Cotton Mather, 1689
Monsters are everywhere. They lurk in the untamed mountains and forests of the New World. They stalk the towns and cities of the Thirteen Colonies. They wait in the shadows to prey on the foolish, the unwary, and the unlucky.

Within these pages, the Colonial Gothic GM will find a selection of creatures great and small, ready to challenge even the most valiant Heroes. Some are denizens of the New World, both natural and supernatural. Others spring from the myths and legends of antiquity, and have crossed the great Ocean along with the colonists. Some do not belong in this world at all, but may be summoned here by dabblers in sorcery.

The Colonial Gothic Bestiary contains descriptions and game statistics for more than 50 creatures from myth, legend, and nightmare to supplement the creatures found in the 2nd edition Colonial Gothic Rulebook, along with notes for the GM on using them in Colonial Gothic adventures, and an index listing the creatures in both volumes.

Even in this new Age of Reason, there are creatures that confound science and challenge sanity. Are you ready to face them?

I have said it many times. You can never have too many monsters. The Colonial Gothic Bestiary satisfies that craving and then some. At 110 pages it is full of monsters and many are illustrated. The artwork varies. Personally I am a fan of the older [...]

The role monsters play in Colonial Gothic will depend on the sort of game you like to run. If you play the default 'Gothic Horror' style of game, monsters are best used sparingly but to good effect as you build up the evidence and the tension until wha [...]

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.
