Let them know obedience. Let them know desolation. But, most of all, let them know pain...

Salena Valanas, instructing the Shapers Guild

Written by Hal Maclean and Mathew Kaiser, The Blighted Bestiary presents a host of new monsters and minions designed to help the blight elves carry out their crusade of visiting misery to every corner of the world. Though designed as a companion volume to Blight Elves: Architects of Despair, a Narrator could easily adapt the creatures, templates and even stat blocks of different creatures found within this book to fit other situations. Every world needs villains, the more dastardly the better, and the blight elves, devoted servants to the goddess of suicide, bring an entirely new dimension to villainy.

Seeking not territorial aggrandizement or personal glory, but rather to make every living creature prefer death to life, the blight elves apply every facet of their pitiless lore to manufacturing servant creatures. Twisting flesh and bone to suit their purposes, they delight in the certainty that most of their vassals suffer with constant torment, both physical and psychological. Only the safeguards bred into them by their masters keeps these wretched creatures from taking revenge for the misery of their existence.

Below are but a few of the blighted horrors you will find in this product:

Blaze Shrikes: birds with combustible blood that serve their masters as free-willed grenades.

Blight Nags: Once noble steeds twisted into slavish battle mounts that radiate an aura overwhelming melancholy.

Bone Gallows: An undead lynching post made from the bone and flesh of earlier victims.

Carrion Claws: Emaciated predatory cats that must feed through their claws by stealing life energy from their victims.

Desiccated Colossi: Giants that drain the moisture from their victims with the slightest touch.

Dracoraptors: Flying reptiles with breath so repulsive few creatures can stand against them.

Dust Stalkers: Disease ridden guard animals trained to hunt and kill.

Fendracs: Psychic wolves psychically linked by a pack mind.

Frost Creeps: Giant worms that emit a slime that liquefies and then freezes their surroundings, making it all but impossible for their victims to escape when they roll over them.

Hollowhorns: Gigantic rams that make sounds that grow more terrifying the faster they move.

Hookhides: Huge froglike creatures covered in barbed quills capable of shredding through entire squadrons with each leap.

Killstings: Giant wasp like creatures that implant rapidly maturing eggs in their victims causing squirming grubs to almost instantly spill out of the wound.

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.
