As a Gamemaster, you just can’t have something planned for every eventuality. Perhaps you have to step in to run something on short notice or the normal group can’t meet so you want something to change the pace. The Cthulhu Hack offers a simple system for investigative horror, but where to get the horror? From Unformed Realms offers you a gathering of random tables to provide a springboard for your creativity just when you need it most.

Below the waist… all human resemblance left off. The skin was thickly covered with coarse black fur, and from the abdomen a score of long greenish-grey tentacles with red sucking mouths protruded limply. Their arrangement was odd, and seemed to follow the symmetries of some cosmic geometry unknown to earth or the solar system. On each of the hips, deep set in a kind of pinkish, ciliated orbit, was what seemed to be a rudimentary eye; whilst in lieu of a tail there depended a kind of trunk or feeler with purple annular markings, and with many evidences of being an undeveloped mouth or throat. The limbs… terminated in ridged-veined pads that were neither hooves nor claws.

Of genuine blood there was none; only the foetid greenish-yellow ichor which… left a curious discoloration behind it.

The Dunwich Horror, H P Lovecraft (1929)

For those moments when your players have taken the inevitable path away from whatever you have planned, From Unformed Realms provides the ideal tool for conjuring up a flash of inspiration. In 20 horror packed pages, the supplement provides myriad options for the random creation of horrific nightmares and unnameable monstrosities. You can either roll randomly with a 6-sided die or flick to a random page and choose a numbered section, then inflict the content on your appreciative players.

Pookie - "What it is, is a means to throw something unexpected and unknown into the path of the investigators, adventurers, or misfortunates... the sort of book you want to have on your shelf when short of ideas and short of time and browsing for inspiration." (Reviews from R'lyeh)

Steven Robert - "...it’s an evocative and easy to read source of inspiration for just about any otherworldly monster. I like how it cuts straight to the weirdness - horrific or simply dangerous - and lets you build the monster around those core abilities. I fully intend to use this in fantasy games." (RPGGeek)

Steve Donohue - "First things first, Paul offered me a free copy of this product, but after I read it, I went back and paid for it. Overall this is a great collection of tables with some very inventive options as well as some of the expected options. It's a great product." (RPGGeek)

The supplement contains references and monsters based on the Horror genre. The book does contain references to acts of fictional violence and biological functions, but nothing unsuitable for someone sitting down to play a game of Lovecraftian investigative horror in the first place!

From Unformed Realms is a system-free supplement, easily adapted it to your favourite game system or campaign setting. Some material previously released under the title Consult Appendix Z.

The format at the moment is a single page landscape with two columns - which admittedly looks like a two-page spread. I'll review the format and look to provide an alternative. Thanks for the feedback.

Format

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.
