All Her Hungry Children

Concept: “Dark and delirious reinterpretations of Popular Dungeon Game's monster menu” 
Content: A tumorous corruption of a monstrous manual, starting with the letter A.
Writing: A thorough satire of its source material, suitable for the bleak humor of a surreal and ultimately doomed setting.
Art/design: Monstrous photo-bashing that blends classical elegance with downright ridiculousness.
Usability: Text balancing utility and style from entry to entry. 

Bird of Ill Omen

Concept: “‘They are often seen before Miseries befall the world, leading many to believe them to be agents of Verhu, Nechrubel, or some other malevolent entity.”
Relatively benign; may transfer Omens from players to the GM, and feathers allow PCs to re-roll low Omen rolls (at a cost)
Mostly mechanics with concise description of behavior
Monochrome silhouette suits the monster concept
Additional in-game lore, inspiration, and hooks provided on the product page 

Creatures of the Dying World 3

Concept: “ which he mines the alien world of insects to produce Lovecraftian Things that Should Not Be.” 
Content: 19 sanity-shaking creatures. d66 delusional prompts to manage the fallout.
Writing: A thorough mix of indescribable humor and horror. With a fantastical sanity system that won’t take your players out of the game. 
Art/design: Impressionistic and inked illustrations capture both the silly and the strange.
Usability: Text which balances between utility and style from passage to passage. 

Druidic Forest Stalker

Concept: “Have you ever wanted a familiar that could eat your soul?” 
Content: Soul-sucking forest ranger with an unfaithful friend.
Writing: A disturbing assortment of companions with a generous helping of soul-snacking. 
Art/design: A masked, horned, and cloaked figure dispassionately observes a shadowed glade of text and skulls.
Usability: Kill things, steal souls, get good. 

Duncan Hall’s Mörktober 2023 – 31 Tables & Trivilities

Concept: Duncan Hall’s Little Mörktober Calendar of Horrors.
Content: “31 random generators, monsters, items, and so forth made throughout the month of October 2023.”
Writing: A tortuous elaboration from its initial prompts, full of wit and wretchedness.
Art/design: Sketches, photo bashes, full-color illustrations, and doodles in a filthy day calendar format.
Usability: Most fun when printed on a sticky note calendar. 

Galgenbeck Bestiary

Concept: “Galgenbeck… crooked thieves, cruel knights, obsessed zealots, broken souls.
And then there are the monsters.”
Content: At least nine (but potentially fourteen) monsters.
Writing: Strangely folkloric, highly specific, and vicious absurdism in its ecology.
Art/design: A mixed media collection dominated by sharp high-contrast marker, each creature layout accommodating its illustration.
Usability: Short, legible, and humorously horrific. Deluxe edition contains all 14 monsters.

GVix’s Mörktober 2023 – 31 Phantasmagoric Entries

Concept: "31 Phantasmagoric Entries”

Usability: Available in individual postcard PDF, or advertisement spread png. 

Johan’s Forest

Writing: Head-turning depictions like, “At night they merge into one giant bird-snake."
Art/design: Miserable little trees, a filthy little creek, and a few other happy little accidents. 
Usability: A quick sketch for an in-media-res forest crawl. 

Monolith 1: Harvest

8 contributors
Concept: “A quarterly publication that focuses its cyclopean gaze on a single system with every issue”
Content: “A journey through dilapidated townsteads, rejuvenated fields and terrifying dungeons, with all the horrors you meet along the way”
Writing: The pedagogy of planting and population planning, and a forgotten temple to begotten basilisks, all aggressively annotated. 
Art/design: Darkly grotesque cultists, disturbed floral prints, cultured public domain illustrations, and colorful marginalia highlight the body text.
Usability: Organized, aside from a few intentionally frustrating almanac charts. But I’m sure you can manage those with a little old-fashioned spit and polish.

Morkkabeans 1.1

9 contributors
Concept: “A new religion has arisen in the desert. Worshiping the Unnamable God of Names, blaspheming against SHE and HE, promising the revolt. Galgenbeck has sent its inquisitors.  The half-giant Nephilim walk the earth. If you join them, almost certain death awaits.”
Content: An escalating tower crawl of nameless gods and religious conflict. Complete with three new classes, gear, artifacts, angels, Nephilim, and mythical creatures. 
Writing: An absolutely metal reinterpretation of Jewish history and folklore.
Art/design: A spectacle of artistic styles as varied as the tower of tongues.
Usability: Visual styles delineate sections. VTT resources available.

Content: A bird, who paralyzes, and always wins initiative. 
Writing: Yet more proof that nice names usually denote horrible creatures.
Art/design: Screenshot and discord text.
Usability: Probably inspired by someone's Elden Ring nightmares. 


Concept: “As you put on the cape, feathers start growing from under your skin...”
Content: A cape to become the bird of your dreams (or at least omens).
Writing: A surprisingly flexible and self-regulating magic item with gut-wrenching descriptive text.
Art/design: Some winged angel, tastefully protected by some boxed text.
Usability: Make sure to emphasize the bone-crunching transformation. 


Concept: “Her piercing eyes as deep as the Múr. Her feathers, black as the tar seeping from the soil of Sarkash.” 
Content: “Pum-Kin, a giant crow that yearns and wants for things.” Those wants. Her gifts. How to earn them.
Writing: A clever collection of shiny Mörktober prompts, nested with a curious corvid.
Art/design: A feather-black trifold, with piercing eyes, sharpened beak, barren trees, and swollen moon.
Usability: Dynamic but cleanly framed tables. 

Roc of Ages

Concept: “The Great Bird of Doom”
A rather large, rather tough, rather valuable bird-beast
Some brief background and stats with 3 attack options
The faces hidden in the plumage are a neat, subtle, evocative touch
Beware of falling rocks
