Get ready for more than a hundred monsters and a hundred magic items inspired by European legends. With an average of two pages dedicated per monster, every entry contains a ton of background information and extras, including mini-adventures, adventure hooks and items. The stats blocks included are designed for 5e D&D, but this book holds treasures for every RPG enthusiast, no matter which system you prefer, or if you just like to read. Check out our update section for bi-weekly updates and previews!

For GMs: Every monster is designed with care and detail, including introductory tales, descriptions of their biology, behavior and history. We’ve included optional rules, monstrous hooks to inspire you, and mini-dungeons that will provide hours of entertainment. Both the monsters and magic items in this book have been designed to be of use to you no matter which tier your heroes are currently. But there's more...

Horrible and interesting foes to throw at your players!

For players: You’ll find new playable races, pets and familiars, useful new tools and awesome magic items. We’ve even listed the parts of the book that are useful for you specifically- just in case you want to avoid spoilers. Diligent readers will find some links to our On the Shoulders of Heroes campaign setting, but all creatures have purposefully been designed to fit into any fantasy world.

New player races include river and sea trow, bugbear, gnoll and half-giant!

Why Back? 

You’ll get the chance to get your hands on our product at a much lower price before it becomes commercially available. All tiers include free worldwide shipping. Some of our most generous backers get the chance to be in the book in art-form and to help us design some monsters. Are you a store owner in Europe and want to sell our book? We’ve got your back with the re-seller tier: 5 books at a discount!

All donations will increase production value of the book, allowing us to include more and higher quality art and content. 

Risks and challenges

We are working together with DrivethruRPG and a local printer in the Netherlands to make this book a reality. We’ve learned a lot from our successful Kickstarter project last year and feel confident that we can bring you a great product within the projected time-frame. Our team is bigger this time, which is new and exciting! More voices will require more managing and cooperation but will also allow more people to add their creativity in the final product. We’ve already established contact with all contributors to ensure that they are able to deliver quality work within the projected time frame. We're used to working with people from all over the globe and look forward to doing so again with this project.

Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any specific questions regarding our product or company.
