Book, 2015 Calendar & Postcards
We all see the same versions of the fantasy bestiary, goblins, griffins and trolls. But on how many occassions do your adventurers encoutner hatchlings, pups or cubs?
To hunt, kill, and loot each of these cute critters!!...well..you could do that...but I'm sure you would have some very very upset players.
This project is to truly show off some cute adorable critters that are often left outside of the encounter tables. Featuring postcards, a calendar, prints and the baby bestiary book that details how to deal with that partuclar baby beast in the event you are stuck with, or happen to run into one.
How do you raise a griffin hatchling? How do you train it? What do they eat and how often do they eat?
These are all questions that you must ask yourself when trying to rear a baby beast or special companion. This hardcover book will contain all of your relevant rearing information that can be used in any fantasy setting. As so far the book is planned to be 12 beasts long, however as we hit stretch goals, the number of baby beasts will continue to grow.
Anyone who gets the Print book, also gets the PDF of the Baby Bestairy Book. The PDF is also listed seperately as an add-on.

Risks and challenges
Major challenge of the project will be completing the art and mobilizing the calendars to get them to you by December.
To combat this, since the project has been fully-funded earlier than anticipated, I was able to have the artist begin work during the kickstarter to insure I can get the calendars art earlier, buying time for calendar delivery.
