A mysterious world of dark and light exists just around the corner! Enter the Feyland and discover strange new creatures! We're making a full-color, hardcover book (and PDF version) filled with 100 5E monsters from the Feyland! These monsters will be usable in many other environments. Each monster will be illustrated by fantasy/comic artist Travis Hanson.
The Monsters of Feyland hardcover book will be approximately 108 pages long, packed with different kinds of monsters. Each monster will have a color illustration, stat block, and background information. Many of the monsters will be fey, but other types of monsters will also be included. There will be arch fey, brownies, centaurs, dragons, elves, faeries, giants, gnomes, goblins, hags, magical trees, nymphs, unicorns, witches, undead, and much more. The collection of creatures will also include a wide range of challenge ratings. Here are some examples of the monsters in their initial phases:
Travis Hanson will be doing all the illustrations, including the cover and all the monsters. He is well-known for his Life of the Party and Bean comics. His last Kickstarter was the Life of the Party/Role For Initative book: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/488571414/life-of-the-party-role-for-initiative. Travis has 17 years of professional experience and was nominated for an Eisner award in 2011. He also worked with us on our last Kickstarter, World of Myrr Adventures Vol 2.
A few different levels can receive a 5E adventure module for levels 1-3. This PDF will be about 40 pages long and provide enough resources to run a sandbox style game. It will include monsters from the Monsters in Feyland collection.
The Adventurer and Legend level backers will receive a book of a dozen maps with a fey theme. The settings will include forests, caverns, and buildings. These full-color, detailed maps will come in a PDF.
The Legend level backers will receive a PDF with twenty detailed 5E NPCs that will fit into any fey themed adventure. Each character will have a stat block and a bio that includes a backstory, personality, bond, ideal, flaw, and equipment.
$23,000 - CAMPAIGN SETTING (UNLOCKED!). All backers will receive the Naern 5E campaign setting, a 100 page PDF detailing the third continent in the World of Myrr. The Feyland overlaps with Naern, the homeland of the elves. This book will detail the deities, factions, settlements, history, geography, and other elements of the setting.
$24,000 - CUSTOM-MADE D20 (UNLOCKED!). All backers who receive the hardcover book will also receive a custom-made d20 from Q-Workshop. It will be either black and white or black and yellow, with our griffon logo on the '20'. Q-Workshop is a well-known dice company based in Poland.
$26,000 - ADVENTURE MODULE (UNLOCKED!). All backers will receive a 5E adventure (levels 4-6) PDF. It will be at least 40 pages long and provide resources to play a sandbox style game. Monsters from the Monsters of Feyland collection will be included.
We have created two well-received 5E softcover books along with over 25 other 5E products. After two years of creating, we're ready to take the next step and create a high-quality hardcover book.

Risks and challenges
There are risks to everything. Professional editing is very expensive and time consuming. The prices for artwork and printing have increased so we had to add some shipping costs. Our last two Kickstarters were right on budget and close to the delivery date. To make sure this project is on time, the timeline is longer as the art alone will be time consuming. We feel the budget and timelines are appropriate.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
