The Bestiary of Krynn returns by popular demand! The sourcebook for the creatures of the Dragonlance game world is being reprinted in an expanded, revised edition. All errata from the previous edition has been incorporated into a book that has been re-organized for easier reference. The original artwork that won awards is back, along with creatures useful for Dragonlance campaigns but could be easily ported to other d20 System campaign worlds.
Also included are encounter tables and the rules for racial acceptance. It was published by Sovereign Press in April Continuing Sovereign's Dragonlance Saga. After producing the Dragonlance Campaign Settng for Wizards of the Coast late in , Sovereign Press ended that year with their first licensed release, the setting Companion , Age of Mortals They then hit the ground running in ; from here on, they'd reliably publish four to five Dragonlance books a year.
The first of these was Bestiary of Krynn. At the time, the d20 industry was heavy with monster manuals. However, Sovereign rightfully believed that they could stand out from the crowd, thanks the depth of the Dragonlance setting. Bestiary of Krynn would be the third. The Dragonlance Campaign Setting had already included about 20 pages of monsters.
It was a highlight reel of the world's best known creatures, including death knights, the original 5 draconians, the dragonspawn of the New Age, spectral minions, thanoi, and a few others.
Banks and La Roche were asked to bring together all the other Dragonlance monsters. The authors extensively combed through all of Dragonlance's history for monsters. Monsters from well-known RPG sources like the original "DL" series and Time of the Dragon were obvious, but they also sought out the more obscure supplements such as DLR1: Otherlands , which contributed the rodent funno, the twinned tayfolk, and the bear-people ursoi. Dragon magazines were similarly consulted, revealing Krynnish monstrosities such as the Graygem-tained gray dragon in Dragon June and the goblinoid cave lord and Malystryx's desolation giant in Dragon February The most obscure source that the authors consulted was probably Wizards' short-lived Legends of the Lance newsletter , which yieled the dark thrall of Onysablet.
There were many other sources; the most notable fact about Bestiary of Krynn was how all-inclusive it was. A'Revising We Go.
The original Bestiary of Krynn went out of print in just more than a year. Sovereign then released a revised edition in April The new edition included errata, revamped stat box formatting, a few new monsters, and a bit of new art.
It also totally reorganized the book. The original book had been divided by type, highlighting the most important monster categories in Krynn. The Revised edition was, more simply, alphabetized.
Expanding Krynn. The Bestiary is of course full of monsters for use in Krynn. However, it also includes another very important detail: encounter tables listing which standard monsters might appear in a variety of terrain.
Figuring out which monsters were present in Krynn was a problem even for designers, as witnessed in DL "World of Krynn" , which included not just werewolves who aren't present in Krynn , but also a tarrasque.
Now, designers and GMs alike could see complete lists of what was appropriate for the world. Monsters of Note. There are many, many monsters of notes in Bestiary of Krynn. Not surprisingly, many of them are dragons or related species like a new variant of the Fifth Age's dragonspawn. There were even a few new monsters.
Another newbie was the remnant, which Cam Banks introduced to explain the presence of a demilich way back in DL3: "Dragons of Hope" Future History. Two books later expanded some of the topics covered in this book: Races of Ansalon and Dragons of Krynn About the Creators. Banks and La Roche had both been with the Sovereign Dragonlance team from the start. They were thanked for their contributions to the Dragonlance Campaign Setting and credited with Additional Design in Age of Mortals However, this was their first major outing.

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. 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. 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. Here is a sample of a page from a watermarked title:. File Last Updated:.
