Product Blurb:
The most blasphemous tome to ever blight the glory of creation with its very existence, The Dread Codex contains the sum total of knowledge regarding the unspeakable topic of The Undead.

This 110-page PDF, written by Bret Boyd, compiles over 60 of the most horrific undead creatures and templates, taken from the Open Content of 16 different Third-Edition d20 System print products, and updates them to 3.5 specs. But it doesn't stop there.

The entries for every creature have been expanded with fully generated treasure entries, and hints and tips on using each creature in your own d20 System campaign, including adventure ideas! Plus, The Dread Codex features dozens of undead-themed magic items and artifacts, and over 60 Necromantic or otherwise undead-related spells.

The Dread Codex gives Gamemasters a one-stop shop for their undead needs...all that's lacking are your own willing victims player-characters!
