When you're a GM, you need to come up with everything in the universe except the PCs in your games. That can be a rather daunting task. Thankfully, there's a host of material out there to help. A new one coming soon is Niwri's Marvelous Menagerie of the Multiverse. If you're looking to populate your game with all manner of creatures great and small, this is the supplement to get. It's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Welcome to Niwri's Marvelous Menagerie of the Multiverse. This volume will guide you through the lesser known and non-bestial fantasy creatures of the realms, narrated by the one and only Niwri (pronounced Nee-Ree) Evets himself!
One of the things that makes our world feel lived in is the sites and sounds of the everyday animals around us. Imagine a neighborhood without birds or barking dogs; a lake without frogs; a beach without seagulls. Even as children we're fascinated by animals and surrounded by them everywhere. Most of us could not imagine life on Earth without animals in one form or another. So why are our fantasy worlds so devoid of those same types of unique and vital creatures?
Such animals must surely exist in our RPG games, but we rarely give them a second thought due to pressing dangers such as dragons, evil liches, or some other pending end of the world event.
Niwri Evets is ready to change all that with his Marvelous Menagerie!
