The wonderful, wild, and great creatures that lurk just under the waves, just beyond the next dune, slumber deep in the forests, or high above in the clouds. Magical beasts are a diverse and unique mainstay for any setting or world.

From the small to large, this book contains a wide variety of new magical beasts. From tremorlizards scrabbling inside of great caves, to hourglass jian cranes maintaining their tranquil homes, to the humble lava toad and the aggressive and territorial behir or remorhaz. Creature variants of unique owlbears which live in snowy mountains and dark forests, great and massive metallic tortoises, and the air and seaborne cousins to the unicorn.

In addition to new creatures, climactic encounters are a wide set of guidelines for creating cinematic and memorable encounters, adding powerful one-time actions, arena actions, or even additional initiatives to diversify Pathfinder “boss” fight execution. Alongside new creatures are new companions and familiars, including new magical beast companions and improved familiars, as well as ways to add templates to old companions to allow them to align with the planes, elements, become mechanical, giant, or even possessed.

Spheres Bestiary: Magical Beasts and Climactic Encounters is a Pathfi nder 1st edition supplement and companion to the Beast Tamer’s Handbook using Ultimate Spheres of Power, as well as materials from Spheres of Might, Champions of the Spheres, and other Drop Dead Studio products.

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.
