A Dozen Dungeon Denizens

A Dozen Dungeon Denizens


Populating the dungeon is easy, right? You flip open a book of monsters, select a creature, and toss it behind the next door just as the adventurers are about to bash it down and continue their quest for treasure. At least, that’s one – very valid, in my opinion – way to approach stocking the dungeon with inhabitants.

Or, if you wish, you can take a different approach and make each monster found in the dungeon a little more than the speedbump between the heroes and their ultimate goal: finding more treasure!

A Dozen Dungeon Denizens details twelve monsters that are ready to join the more generic beasties in your next dungeon design. While a systemless work – like all of the entries in the A Dozen . . . series – this PDF includes more than just the name and description of a monster. The twelve monsters offered in this short work may be used as encounter seeds, with each entry existing for a single reason: to inspire you, the gamemaster!

A few of the twelve include a smattering of history, telling how the monster may have ended up in the dungeon, what it might be looking for in life, as well as how it will react to the party and what treasures (if any) it may have that the adventurers will no doubt wish to take.

Additionally, I have written a brief rumor about each of the monsters that may be used when the PCs are visiting a tavern or inn. They may overhear one of these rumors or, maybe, when asking around, one of the locals shares just the right piece of gossip that sends the party into the nearby dungeons.

This PDF was created thanks to the support of 1,995 backers who joined in the Kickstarter campaign for A Dozen Frightening Rumors. Thank you to all of the supporters for making that campaign a success!

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.
