The Thousand Sanctioned Beasts — Martial Artists


Creation is filled with more strange creatures than any man could ever hope to catalogue in a single lifetime. For better or for worse, the author of The Thousand Sanctioned Beasts may not die until he has catalogued them all.

This is the first installment in a series of bestiaries for Exalted Third Edition. The Thousand Sanctioned Beasts is a game-focused guide to creatures, with the primary aim of making it easy for Storytellers to construct encounters (or for players to summon). Remember how we used to have the Monster Manual? Yeah! Like that!

This installment of The Thousand Sanctioned Beasts focuses on martial artists. It features an array of mortal martial artists of varying skill levels as well as a few Exalted boss monsters. Each can be customized with a variety of different martial arts styles. With these, you can construct an entertaining encounter for Exalts of every power level, from Air Aspects who mostly bought dots in Bureaucracy to Solars eager to resurrect the "Dawn hydra."

With entirely-original art created by Kirsten Moody, The Thousand Sanctioned Beasts aims at being the high-quality book of encounters you've been vaguely expecting to start existing for years.

I've been looking for something like this for years. The biggest barrier I've found to running Exalted 3e has been that while the QCs in the back of the main book are great, more are needed. I can design them myselves, but it takes a lot of time I don' [...]

Being a recent convert to 13th age I was delighted when I saw some 13th Age -style enemy writeups for Exalted. If you have been struggling with Exalted Quick Characters, this supplement will make your day. I'm definetly going to borrow the way enemies [...]

When I ran Exalted 3e, the biggest problem I would have was coming up with interesting combat encounters. The Adversaries of the Righteous series is nice, but it's so damned specific. What Rand has done with Thousand Sanctioned Beasts is a flexible, us [...]

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.
