Bigger Bads is a new sourcebook for the roleplaying game Monsters and Other Childish Things.

Bigger Bads is written by Monsters creator Benjamin Baugh—multiple Ennie Award nominee for Monsters and Other Childish Things and the Monsters sourcebook The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor—and illustrated by Monsters artist Robert Mansperger.

Bigger Bads introduces REALLY big monsters to the game, along with new rules for range, new extras for monster powers, new “weird kid” powers expanded from The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor, new rules for major threats faced by kids and monsters, a new campaign setting, and a ton (actually, a LOT of tons) of new antagonists.

Previews!

The text of Bigger Bads is finished. This project covers the costs of writing, illustrating, editing and laying out the book. When this project succeeds we will lay out the book, print it, and mail it to backers. After all contributors have received their copies, the remainder of the printing will be made available to other gamers.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST EDITION: This project will fund a limited First Edition of Bigger Bads, which will feature its own unique collectible cover art. All future printings of the book will have a separate cover.

FOR THE PDF ONLY: If you make the minimum bid of $10, you get a copy of the PDF without a physical copy of the book. You also get your name listed as a contributor, with our thanks for making the project a reality, in a special dedication in this and all future editions of Bigger Bads.

FOR A PHYSICAL COPY—BACKERS IN THE U.S.: For an initial backing amount of $25, you get the PDF and one physical copy of the book. For each additional $25, you get another physical copy shipped to the same address. You also get your name listed as a contributor, with our thanks for making the project a reality, in a special dedication in this and all future editions of Bigger Bads.

FOR A PHYSICAL COPY—BACKERS OUTSIDE THE U.S.: For an initial backing amount of $40, you get the PDF and one physical copy of the book. For each additional $25, you get another physical copy shipped to the same address. You also get your name listed as a contributor, with our thanks for making the project a reality, in a special dedication in this and all future editions of Bigger Bads.
