Until the invention of reliable and effective forms of artificial lighting, the setting sun indicated the end of man’s control of the world around him. With no sun, he couldn’t see, and when denied sight man was virtually helpless in the dark. It didn’t help matters that there were animals who could virtually see in the dark and moved about with ease in the middle of the night. So, man assigned magical powers to creatures able to do what he couldn’t. With time, he even created new denizens of the supernatural from his imagination and religious beliefs.

Or did he?

At great personal risk to his life, sanity, and very soul, award winning author and paranormal investigator Michael Surbrook has traveled the globe, exploring its darkest corners in a never-ending effort to get at the truth behind the legend. From the haunted attics of New England, to the steaming jungles of Southeast Asia, to the ruins of strife-torn Eastern Europe, no fable is too fantastic, no legend too horrifying, and no occultism too obscure to escape his firm Fortean grasp!

You hold in your hands the hard-won fruits of that sacred quest. Read it at your own risk!

Ghosts, Ghouls, and Golems is a roleplaying game guide to those darkness-dwelling creatures of folklore and myth for Hero System. Emphasis has been placed on presenting these creatures as close to their traditional descriptions as possible - although a few “cinematic,” Hollywood-inspired versions of some of the more popular entries are included. In this book you will find information on vampires, lycanthropes, ghosts, ghouls, wights, and zombies, as well as more obscure creatures like the old hag and the witiko. There are dozens of “monster” sheets, each representing a basic creature template you can further customize as desired. Finally, there are a number of sheets for such infamous beings as Dracula, Jack the Ripper, and the Beast of Le Gévaudan.

The zip file for this product includes seperate character sheets for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, the Hero System, Pathfinder, Mutants & Masterminds, and Savage Worlds.

Format

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.
