Critters, Creatures, & Denizens


Welcome one and all to Critters, Creatures, & Denizens.

Updated for 2016. Fixes issues with first edit, plus 30 pages of new monsters, new mutations, two new character races, and more.

A new book of monstrous surprises and new ideas for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Roll Play Game. In its pages are:

  • More than 120 Pre-generated DCC RPG compatible creature entries from the banal to the horrific with more than 400 variations for size and other subtypes.
  • More than 7 templates that transform the stock creatures into zombies, skeletons, lycanthropes, and more…
  • The guidelines and definitions needed to create your own creatures that will scale appropriately with the DCC RPG environment.
  • Two tables with more than 30 mutations so you can create so many variations that your grand children will still be using this manual to create original combinations!


Optional rules for:

  • Familiars, critters with class levels, and more…
  • Overland and table top movement for those who love a safari…
  • New sources for magic items…


Things you will not find in this work:

  • Treasure tables. Most creatures don’t bother, and the ones who do are likely to be using what ever it is against the players. Besides, every Judge and Storyteller has their own ideas on appropriate treasure so why bother to codify things with tables?
  • Threat ratings and encounter balancing architecture, because only you can know what your players can and cannot handle. Besides, the creatures of the wild don’t look for targets of equivalent strength. They hunt the weak, the sick, and the lame… aka: adventurers…

On page 65 (73 in the pdf) it says "Aerial Specialist – See page 14." but on p.14 (22. in the pdf) there is no section for "Aerial Specialist" only "Aerial Predator". Can I assume that "Aerial Specialist" was replaced with "Aerial Predator" and the author forgot to make the changes on page 65?

If I bought the original print version, can I get a discount on the updated version?

I just bought this and am browsing. It leaves a very good impression. A well-made bestiary, flexible too, and it will aid my campaign greatly.

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.
