Watermarked PDF

  Far beyond the known realms of Europe lie the vast wildernesses of Libya, Ethiopia, Persia, and far-off India. Little is known about these lands, other than they are inhabited by strange and monstrous creatures. All that the learned men of England, France, and Italy can say about them is summed up in the phrase "HC SVNT DRACONES" or "Here Be Dragons."


        Here Be Dragons presents a medieval bestiary in HERO System gaming terms. Thus, the creatures described are described according to period sources and beliefs, meaning they may be vastly different from "traditional" fantasy RPG depictions. However, have no fear, many of the creatures within are easily adaptable to a multiple of genres and settings, and many include notes describing how to do just that.        

  Here Be Dragons includes:       

 

  • Over 40 fantastical and mundane animals, beasts, and monsters.        
  • A brief history of the medieval bestiary, complete with titles and authors        
  • A description of the medieval view of the world        
  • An extensive list of animal folklore, including common myths about both domestic and wild animals        
  • Several unique creatures, including Grendel, the Lambton Worm, the Shaggy Beast, and more!           

 

If you're running a fantasy campaign, or just want a new look at old monsters, Here Be Dragons is the book for you!

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.
