Geek Native has learnt that the French studio’s next project coming to Kickstarter is the Book of Creatures. It will have 200 NPCs and Monsters for 5e, including six playable races and that the campaign has a gift for backers who join in the first 48 hours. It’s there one to watch.
What’s the gift? It’s two collector Advantage and Disadvantage metal dice with an engraved dragon in place of the 20. It’s not yet known at what level you have to back the campaign at to get these dice.
The campaign is due to give on the 8th of September, and the reminder page is already live. You can sign up for an alert and maximise your chance to get your hands on a metal die.
Book of Creatures is a homage to fantasy bestiaries. It’s a large book, 400-pages with more than 200 illustrations and 5e rulesets for each. It reimagines classic creatures, adds brand new ones and offers up 15 archetypes for you to modify and design your own monsters.
Book of Creatures will have three editions. If you’re a Fateforge player, then there’s a Fateforge edition for you, and there’s a standard edition for everyone else. Both have planned retail releases.
There’s also a Red Dragon Limited Edition with an alternative cover. While that may be available at some conventions and special events, it’s mostly a Kickstarter only options and will not be made available at for retail later.
