Description:

A malevolent hunger stirs in the dark corners of the woods. With their inhuman forms they crawl, they fly, and they leap; inching closer toward the sound of the rolling ocean waves, toward the town and its lively chorus. You stop as you sense their otherworldly eyes watching you, their tongues longing for the taste of your entrails. You brace yourself as they step out of the darkness - and are surprised to see that they can wear a human form just like you.

Asuang: Shapechanging Horrors is an illustrated, 18-page product that showcases some of the iconic monsters of Philippine folklore. It tackles the different stories common folk tell regarding these creatures, as well as storytelling themes that a gamemaster can use to integrate these creatures into any campaign. Intended for the 4th Edition of the Dungeons and Dragons game, this product presents eight new monsters ranging from levels 4 to 18 - all in a new, updated statblock format. Some of these monsters include:

 

  • The tianak: Undead creatures created from unborn children infused with an asuang's blood.
  • The sigbin: Shadowborn asuangs that can assume the form of misshapen black hounds.
  • The manananggal: Malevolent spellcasters who sprout wings and segment their torsos to fly off into the night to hunt prey.
This product also contains a GM toolkit with asuang encounters, as well as thematic storytelling and game elements that a gamemaster can add to existing monsters to provide an "asuang feel."

Edited on July 15, 2010: Fixed some minor grammatical errors and updated the monster statblocks to conform with the latest damage and accuracy expectations!

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.
