Monster Menagerie: Rise of the Goblinoids

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Watermarked PDF
$3.99

Welcome to the Rise of the Goblinoids, the fourth in our line of Monster Menagerie monster books. Each volume in this line presents a small set of monsters tied to a single theme, but spread over a range of CRs. For Rise of the Goblinoids, that theme is goblins and all the strange things descended from one of the most prolific of monstrous species. In addition to goblins who have taken to the trees, or who patrol the oceans, we have goblinoids that have mixed with genies, demons, and the forces of nature.

This collection can be helpful to GMs in many different ways. Goblins form the backbone of many of a campaign's early adventures, but after a CR 2 bugbear is no longer a threat (or at least after 12 of them aren't), most groups move on to dragons and giants, leaving goblinoids behind. Not only is this unfortunate from a stylistic point of view, it's annoying for rangers who take humanoid (goblinoid) as a favored enemy, wizards who craft goblin-bane weapons, and any character who has a hatred of goblins as part of a character background. With the goblinoids in this book, a GM can extend the goblin-bashing phase of a game well into the upper levels.

Pathfinder

Additionally, the book can help create a campaign arc: a literal rise of the goblinoids. Perhaps many of the new races presented here are being seen for the first time, and their evils big and small are now spreading across the known world. Why are oni in goblin forms banding together? What has driven hidden goblin subraces out of their islands, forests, and underground caves? Whatever is causing it, the heroes had better put an end to it before the rising tide of goblinoids washes civilization off the face of the world!

However you choose to terrorize your players, we're hopeful you'll find something useful in our fourth Monster Menagerie. Now, ready yourself for the front wave of the Rise; the pucks are hammering out weapons for an átahsaia's new army, ponaturi are screaming war chants on the beach, and the ophidiyarr have unearthed devices mortals were never meant to find!

This set includes eight new goblinoid races for the Pathfinder RPG that could be used in a "goblin uprising" campaign, or just to make encounters with goblins a bit more interesting. Included are the Atahsaia (a giant hobgoblin race that occasionally [...]

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.
