What Crept In

A Manual of Monsters

Length: 40 pages 

There are moments when what we know of the world is less certain. In those fleeting seconds all does not seem as it was, and doubt becomes more tangible than confidence. Shadows seem more solid, darkness more absolute, and fear is just a hair’s breadth from choking your throat. A shiver in your spine gives warning, a cold chill shudders in your frame, but the source of this remains unknown.

The truth is, those moments are evidence not just of transient doubt fuelled by an evolutionary legacy of fear, irrelevant to the current world. They are clues to an awareness that we all possess; remnant of ancient survival instincts that warn us to run, run, flee without thought and search for the safety of numbers and light.

In those twilight moments, something outside has crept in past the threshold.

-Excerpt from the journals of Kira Zen-Abie, fellow of the Geographic Society. 

Herein find a gathering of notes and sketches pertaining to a dozen strange creatures in various stages of their life cycles, and their associates, across a bredth of challenge ratings from beginner to legendary.  Suitable for use in fantasy and horror games, and leveraging the 5e OGL compliance for stats. 

Herein are the Hungrise, which devours the souls of its own kind to increase its power, and hunts those that have escaped death,

... and the Miterakri, who weave cunning traps of titanium-hard webs, and cast out their drones into a berserking flurish of destruction if they cannot find a mate, and death if they can,

... and the Fleshka, who devour their prey by attaching bites taken from to their skin, until they become a Frankenstein's nightmare of patchwork bits flailing for more and more to devour,

... and many more!

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.
