If you’re a fan of dark fantasy, new weird fiction, weird westerns and other forms of genre blending, please check out the kickstarter for Ashe Armstrong’s 2nd book in his Demon Hunter series, “Demon Haunted.” It continues the adventures of battle scarred and ever observant demon hunter, “Grimluk”, an Orc setting to make things right in a world gone wrong. In the series, you have a mixture of classic fantastic staples straight out the Dungeons & Dragons multiverse that have advanced into a pseudo-19th century inspired world. The magic is weird, the locals are weirder, and the rules are rewritten! Backers even get a copy of the first book, so they can be all caught up once the second is released! So please, lend a hand to continue making this fun series a reality. You can find it here.
Thinking about it, I should have saved the title for when I talked about Outsiders (i.e. alien beings and elementals) and Constructs (i.e. robots). Oh well, wasted play on words. But, I really enjoyed jabbering about D&D Monsters this week. Also, I haven’t gotten my copy of the Monster Manual in the mail (as of 9/21/2014) and I don’t want to delay any longer. So, I think it’s time for a different set of nasty beasties this time around. Less planars, more scary things. While I talked about the aforementioned monster types last time, this time I want to hone in on a couple more monsters that are more appropriate for the encroaching Halloween season! Muhahahaha *cue lightning and some poor sap in heavy armor failing their dexterity saving throw* Hmmm, did I do that? No matter, let’s jump right into the fun.
