Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs

In most fantasy settings, castles and cities are vital components of civilization, and many of these rely on moats for defense. These large ditches are usually filled with water and meant to stop attackers from reaching the outer walls. Although this tactic was successful in real world history, traditional moats are not as effective in fantasy worlds because of the existence of magic. To counter this and thwart fantasy-world invaders, moats could be filled with different materials and energies, or even populated with monsters. 

This sourcebook contains 20 monsters specifically designed to be ideal for occupying moats and enhancing their natural functions, along with ideas on other ways moats can be made more lethal first lines of defense for fortifications. Monsters in it are stat'ed for the "Basic" OGL system and can be easily adapted or used as-is with any RPGs based on or derived from it.

I don't do many reviews, but felt compelled to say a few words about this little gem. In all transparency I have shared emails with the author Derek Holland many times over the years, but that in no way influenced my review. First off let me say I had [...]

Pretty good sourcebook for the price, great stat write ups for hazards, natural plants, and hired monsters to swim your defensive moat. Would have liked more passive defenses and traps, but this is dedicated to the monsters. Love Black Blocks and Pink [...]

These are pretty inventive. The intro actually had a ton of ideas for moats, too. If you have a castle, you'll want this book. In fact, I am playing an adventure with my future headquarters on an island. I think I'll surround it with some of these good [...]

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.
