We are near the end of the original Classic Monsters print run, but we don't want the book to pass into the archives. Help us keep Classic Monsters in print and Join the Fray!

Monsters abound. They litter the halls of our collective games like so much debris; wandering monsters, laired beasts, plane walkers, horrid thoughts that linger upon the edge of our imagination. As any gamer of any stripe knows, you can never have too many creatures, for these are the grist for the mill that is our game.

The early days of gaming saw some of the most classic and amazing creatures; weird beasties derived from the minds of people influenced by a genre of fiction that was in its prime, when fantasy truly meant the fantastic. Castles & Crusades has touched upon them from time to time, but by and large they have remained in the background. Until now.

Kim Hartsfield, long-time veteran of classic gaming, brings many of these monsters back to life.

What Your Pledge Earns You!

Classic Monsters: This 144 page hardcover book retails for $27.99 in print and $19.99 digital. It includes over 130 monsters culled from the classic words of table top!

Classic Monsters Encounters: This short book of 8 two-page adventures includes quick encounters designed to insert into any night's game.

Caverns of Chaos: This fantastic piece from Fat Dragon Games, Caverns of Chaos, provides you with a completely modular cavern construction system. Easy to build and featuring lush graphics; this set includes flowing lava falls, a modular bridge system that includes our exclusive no-slip construction system that allows you to put miniatures on inclines, a massive dragon skeleton, stalagmites, tiered terrain, and much more.

Classic Monsters Tee shirt: Another classic Tee!

Add ons are always a challenge. You have to wait months before you actually get them, so lets just bypass that entirely. Use the below coupon to order from the TLG ONLINE STORE and we'll ship the products as soon as the order processes!

$3000 Reprinted: We are going to clean up the text, update the experience points to comply with changes in Monsters & Treasure 4th printing and reprint this book in wonderful hardcover. This unlocks the leathers! Available to $25.00 and up!

$5000 Expanded: We're going to expand the book with classic treasure. We'll cull some of your favorites from a wide range of sources and put them to ink! Available in digital and print copies of Classic Monsters.

$7000 New Cover: As much as Steve LOVES Dreamie's original cover, we're going to update the cover with new art. This will help the book line up with all the new full portrait covers. The cover art will be a complete wrap around.

$9000 Full Color Poster: The new cover gets a new poster!

$12000 Full Color: We'll render the entire book in FULL COLOR! This will make the whole an insanely beautiful book and bring it into line with all the latest printings. IF we hit this level the production time may be longer due to coloring the pictures.

A Note on Shipping: Shipping charges, if applicable, are added following the Kickstarter campaign in the Backer Kit. All $99 and $125 pledges whose shipping destination lies within the United States will not be charged a shipping fee. Note: Add-ons may increase your shipping fee.
