These Monsters Have Class!

It Just Got Easier to Make an Encounter Harder! Whether it’s the shaman of a pack of lizardmen, a group of gnoll mystics from the blasted deserts of Ankhara, or a succubus temptress one step more dangerous than her sisters, sometimes you just need to spice up a monster! Just slapping the advanced template on a creature often isn’t very interesting, but actually adding levels of core and base classes to monster stat blocks is time consuming and math-intensive. The simple class templates in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Monster Codex provided a fast and easy way to add the abilities of the core heroic classes to monsters, which is great when what you need is a monster with druid or rogue abilities, but that still leaves no quick way to create monstrous alchemists, antipaladins, oracles, samurai, and warpriests. Now, with the Genius Guide to Simple Class Templates for Monsters, we've add simple class templates for the 21 alternate, base, and hybrid classes the original system left out. Each comes with fast and simple rules for adding class abilities to a monster, and a fully-written out, fully- illustrated example of what an antipaladin mohrg is like. Or a ninja rakshasa. Or a warpriest frost giant. Because when you need a nalfeshnee arcanist, you don’t have time to write it up from scratch.

Absolutely excellent product. The templates are easy to understand and implement and will make my encounters so much more interesting. And it's also one of the most beautiful PDF products I've ever seen. Great work!

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.
