The Nemesis Bestiary series is an outgrowth of the Space Monsters series of PDFs for the Galaxy Command (D20 Future) setting. Like Space Monsters, the Nemesis Bestiary series takes an interesting piece of stock art and builds a new creature around the art, rather than commissioning art after the text is written. Space Monsters quickly built up a menagerie of fun, original aliens and Nemesis Bestiary Volume One begins the same process. Many of these monsters are usable with Otherverse Games’ in-house fantasy campaigns: Black Tokyo Legends: The Tatakama and The Masters of Endara but they can be equally at home in your campaign.

The Nemesis Bestiary takes a somewhat unusual approach to revealing a monster’s history and behavior. While game-rule information and special powers are clearly delinated, the monster’s history, true nature and motivations aren’t. Instead, reports from the field, written by adventurers who’ve survived an encounter with the beast give first-hand, though often fragmentary and sometimes contradictory, information. The rationale is that even if your players have read the statblocks for the new creatures in this PDF, they still don’t know everything about the monster. The game master is free to improvise, expand and extrapolate as desired to build a unique encounter around one of these powerful and intriguing new beasts.

An interesting concept. 20 monsters complete with stat-blocks, art and description of their special abilities. There is almost no "fluff", just "crunch" to this book. The idea is you create the background yourself. A lot of [...]

This is 'yet another monster collection' with a few outstanding and unusual features that makes it noteworthy over and above the general usefulness to any GM of having even more monsters to hand... Conceptually, it's interesting because each bea [...]

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.
