Description:

Fantasy should be fantastic (and by "fantastic" we mean the dictionary definition-conceived by unrestrained fancy; beyond the realm of the ordinary). That might seem like an obvious thing to say, but fantasy fiction has become so common in popular entertainment that in many ways it has lost its sense of fancy. Elves and dwarves and orcs ... we've seen them all before. They're as familiar to the modern audience as private eyes, foreign spies, and femme fatales were fifty years ago. What was once fantastical now represents the status quo, and we have to look further abroad if we truly want to find something beyond the realm of the ordinary.

Pathfinder Logo


As a small offer in that regard, The Genius Guide to Races of Hoof and Horn presents a trio of new fantasy races-the asterion, the lapith, and the pipers-suitable for use as player characters or NPCs. These races share a common trait of sporting hooves and/or horns, a small connection but one not found in any of the standard races. They also all hale from remote, some might even say exotic, locales, making it sensible that encountering them would be a rarity in almost any world (and making it easier to incorporate them into existing campaign). 


Of course, it takes more than just a few cosmetic peculiarities to make a creature feel truly fantastic. Like the elves, dwarves, and the other classic character races, each of the new races comes from a culture with its own unique perspective on life and their place in the world-a set of cultural norms that GMs and players can use to understand how the group would fit into a campaign and build characters that fit within (or purposely stretch themselves beyond) those expectations.


Like any good rules expansion, The Genius Guide to Races of Hoof and Horn is meant to introduce new possibilities to your Pathfinder campaign and give everyone at the table a chance to expand the horizons of the game and create adventures that are truly fantastic.

In the very first campaign I had ever ran, I had a character who begged, and begged, and begged me to let her to play a Centaur. I was a young novice buck of a dungeon master, and greenlit her character. Little did I know she’d bring a self-drawn portra [...]

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.
