Our newest book, Chilling Curiosities—A Field Guide is out!
This time we’re covering a bunch of new, low level monsters instead of the standard fantasy monsters like we’ve done before. I’m interested to see how well this does compared to Griffins and Phoenixes. Also, we’re trying the horror angle, so we’ll see if that’s a hit or not.
Some of the monsters are really fun too. We’ve got an eye in a jar, an ooze that gets more powerful when you attack it and a dream-haunting apparition. As always, Bob did excellent work on bringing the stats to life, and the layout is equally chilling.
I really want to recommend this to GMs who are running a low level (lvl 1–6) campaign, particularly a horror one. I think the new monsters will test your players in new ways, that’s exactly what I designed them to do!
Our newest book is up on Drive Thru RPG!
Rising Phoenix Games and The Figment Factory have brought you the second publication in our Field Guide series.
I could not be more proud of our work on this. And phoenixes! Man! Those birds have a place in my heart. Getting to do not 1 but 7 of them was a sweet challenge.
Of all the birds in this book, I think I’m most proud of the Japanese inspired houou, partly because I just haven’t found them in the core books, but also because they remind me of holidays in Japan, visiting ancient temples or checking out works of art by greats like Hokusai.
Oh, and wow, speaking of art, the art in this is top notch. I think Bob Greyvenstein is going to need to offer his illustrations as printed posters, they’re amazing.
We’ve been hard at work on THREE new monster books, one of which will be available as a free download to subscribers.
Our production schedule looks like this:
- Griffins—A Field Guide
- TBA—A Field Guide (Art done, writing almost done)
- TBA—A Free Field Guide (Art done, writing done, currently in proofreading)
- TBA—A Field Guide (Art done, crunch done, fluff to be done)
