Explore the Adorable
If you are unfamiliar with the Baby Bestiary, prepare to "aww" and "squee" as we reveal to you how adorable your favorite monsters can be.
What is the Baby Bestiary?
The Baby Bestiary is an award-winning, systemless art and lore book, that teaches its readers how creatures reproduce, how to care for its egg (if they lay eggs) and how to rear one if you are bold enough to try.
The book has no stats or charts, leaving it as an amazing coffee-table book that can truly be appreciated by any gamer, no matter what you play. If you're an avid gamer, there is plenty of information that a crafty GM can make workable into their campaign (and if you're playing 5e, you're in luck, see the digital goodies).
The book is all about the cute and, need I say more

The collectors' edition is a hard-slipcase for you to store and protect your lovely Baby Bestiary handbooks! We do a very limited run of these and if we can hit the right goals, get some fresh art to make this run even more special!
To provide something to our D&D fans and prior Baby Bestiary backers we're adding digital goodies to this Kickstarter. As this project grows we'll be adding to the digital goodies for most of stretch goals, this way everybody wins!
What's currently included in the digital goodies?
- PDF D&D 5e Companion Book
Here we bring Baby Beast companions and rearing to D&D 5e!!
All backers who get the digital goodies can choose to playtest the system we've made and help make it better! (all backer names will go on this product)
- ZIP Baby Bestiary Icons
The adorable faces of our Baby Beasts will be provided to you for the use of Virtual Tabletops (we're currently working with them to get in their store), if the project expands, I would love to make some custom ones.
- PDF Baby Bestiary Coloring Book
An old favorite from the old Baby Bestairy days, feel free to print and color your favorite adorable beasties :)
- PDF 2018 Calendar
Because it's early in the year and you still need a calendar (the print ones are available on Amazon)
- ZIP Wallpaper Pack ('ll add a few to the existing ones as well)
wallpapers for your computer, great to show off your inner geek at work and at home! These will be available in 1024x768 and 1366x768 resolutions (and I can make a few more from all the awesome art we've made over the years)
Bronze Owlbear Mini
We've been experimenting here and there with the miniatures for quite some time, but we're happy to share with you our awesome owlbears!!
These will most likely be produced by shapeways using their Steel-Polished Bronze materials option
NOTE: the 125 tier says premium plastic, this is a mistake and supposed to be the bronze owlbear as well.
PDFs of the Baby Bestiary and most of the digital goodies can be delivered immediately, once the campaign has wrapped up.
The print books are slated to arrive around May/June, so probably expecting a July Delivery date.
We'll get there, just wait :)
Risks and challenges
We've run 10 Kickstarter projects throughout our career...we got this.
That said, weird things have happened for other projects (such as freight losing an entire shipment or a huge printer mess-up), we will do our best to avoid or mitigate such problems.
We're currently in process of printing Atlas Animalia and we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to reduce freight costs.
