Throughout my 30+ years as a DM/GM, I have had many times when my players were bored with the same old monsters. In an effort to bring unexpected twists and enjoyment to my players,I started homebrewing and reskinning monsters. L'gat's Tome of Amazing Creatures is a collection of what I have used and created.
The base digital pdf will include 20 monsters complete with black line sketch art,stat blocks, physical descriptions,lore,culture,and history of each monster.
Our stretch goals will be to raise funds for better quality artwork, expanding the monster selection, expanding the lore,culture,and history sections with additional features such as an encounter roll-table and lair maps.
Special thanks to Megan Hambrock for her advice for using Reaper for the kickstarter video,Brandish Gilhelm for providing the music for the kickstarter video, Nate Macreno for his contributions to the PDF, Jonathan Enck for his work on the artwork on the pdf including the cover page and image of the star dragon seen in the kickstarter video,and Anna Dunster for her contributions to the artwork in the pdf.
Stretch Goal $750 will unlock roll tables for encounters and adventurer hooks as well as two additional monsters.
Stretch Goal $1,000 will unlock sample lair maps and four additional monsters.
Stretch Goal $2,000 will unlock expanded lore,culture,and history sections as well as high quality artwork for select monsters.
Stretch Goal $5,000 will unlock an additional 26 monsters.
Stretch Goal $7,500 will unlock all 78 monsters,top quality artwork for all monsters.
Stretch Goal $10,000 will unlock expanded lair maps,roll tables,lore,culture,history sections. In addition, if this stretch goal is reached, I will personally guarantee all backers are invited to at least one oneshot featuring the monsters out of L'gats' Tome of Amazing Creatures.
Risks and challenges
There are many risks and challenges that come with a project of this type including creating a quality product in a timely manner being the biggest challenge I see. To this end, I have 3 other people assisting me in the project. They serve not only as extra hands on the project itself but as advisors and motivators.In addition, I have set a very strict work policy for daily progress for myself.
The second big challenge I see is making people aware of the project. To this end,I have made videos for my youtube channel about the PDF,mentioned it's progress in several communities on Facebook, and am willing to participate in Interviews or Discussions about my projects whenever my work schedule permits.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
