The Dark Eye - Aventuria Bestiary


Demon hunter. Chimera killer. Dragon slayer. Titles that bring honor and glory... But to claim one of these awe-inspiring titles, heroes must defeat these beasts.

Horrifying and deadly monsters lurk in the forests, swamps, and jungles of Aventuria. To creatures such as these, heroes are little more than food, and whoever gets too close may fall prey to venomous fangs, razor-sharp claws, or worse.

Many adventurers have dreamed of slaying a giant wyvern and plundering its ancient hoard, but dragon-slaying is no easy task! The Aventuria Bestiary describes 40 terrifying monsters and two dozen highly dangerous animals that can challenge even the mightiest group of heroes.

This sourcebook describes supernatural beings such as demons, fairies, and ghosts, but also includes nightmarish flesh-and-bone creatures like the corpse-devouring ghoul, the foul pit worm, and the titanic gorger.

The wilds of Aventuria hold more than just monsters. The land also supports many dangerous and interesting animals. Aventuria’s oceans, skies, and fields are home to bloodthirsty striped sharks, arrow-swift storm falcons, and heavily armored, horned saurians, each a unique challenge for heroes who dare to explore the trackless wastes.

Each creature description features a full stat block, a colorful illustration, and notes on physical traits, habitat, and encounter tips.

As a bonus, the Aventuria Bestiary introduces new advantages and disadvantages, new special abilities designed for combat with creatures, rules for creature swarms, and expanded rules for hunting and making use of quarry.

The game is awesome and change from the light and poor in competences DD5, the quality of a rich game and world with a lot of customization of the character.
For master and player who love rich stories and their playing characters.
A very good game.

As a backer for the Kickstarter for 5th Ed in English, I can honestly say Ullisses Spiele are a company with integrity and honesty

It is absolutely against the policy of Ulisses Spiele (and DriveThruRPG in general) to inflate ratings by reviewing our own products. DriveThruRPG customers have the ability to hide their identities for their own privacy reasons, and we have no control over that.

While it is certainly possible that the same individual has reviewed multiple products, that person has not been prompted to do so by any Ulisses Spiele staff.

Must say that this "Customer Name withheld" "customer" always pristine and sky-rocketing reviews about every new TDE release it´s really starting to negatively impress me as a possible customer of the products, as I find it a very "unsavory" way of trying to sell the products via (not so) sneaky means... just saying!!

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.
