Menagerie — Vol. 1: Drowning

Watermarked PDF

The thundering of terrible gods, the howling of the wind through spectral sails, the cries of the Cirein-cròin caught in a net, the guttering of a candle lit below the tides…

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition content for GMs and Players alike.

After running games for 20 years, a lot of great moments were made through trial and error. Why should those moments only be remembered, only be experienced, by one table?

Menagerie is a zine, collecting together thematic bundles of vigorously tested content compatible with Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, intended to be used by GMs and players alike. The first volume—Drowning—focuses on nautical themes, containing 15 pages of content:

  • A new Lawful Neutral God of Navigation, Sea Travel, and the Compass: Rudderless,
  • A whole 3rd-level ghost-ship adventure, focusing on the hubris of a sea captain, desperate for the secrets of immortality: The Bereaved Harridan,
  • Five new monsters, faithfully reimagined from lesser-utilised real-world mythologies: Bakunawa, Charybdis, Cirein-cròin, Mhalla, and Umibozu,
  • And three new and unique magical items, to aid adventurers on the high seas.

Pages: 19, A4

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.
