The Mad Wizard Menagerie - Lapistani

The Mad Wizard Menagerie - Lapistani

Watermarked PDF

I am the Mad Wizard and I have allowed myself to be captured by the Order of Magistratus Arcanum. I have deemed it the appropriate time to write of my journeys and talk of my experiences while relaxing in my cell. The Order is full of questions, so I shall give them answers. I will call my writings The Mad Wizard's Menagerie as a nod to the Order's narrow-minded views and ridiculous policies. In my notes I will tell about the creatures I have seen, fought, admired, or killed in my travels. I will sketch them as well, for pictures are as powerful as portals for the limited mind.

If you care for a closer look, you can see a sample here (PDF). 

This installment is the Lapistani. A statue that is not a statue. It's devilish intent is to cause trouble with those of a religious bent. It's also a devil. 

If you wish to peruse these monsterous writings sooner or for less money or engage me directly you may do so via Patreon here.

This product include lore, art, a stat block, Tokens for printing and for VTT, and a new spell along with a very sassy Mad Wizard.

The Mad Wizard's Menagerie is produced by Encoded Designs, written by Shawn Merwin, edited by Robert M. Everson, illustrated by Matt Morrow, and laid out by Christopher Sniezak.

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.
