World-renowned for their unique horror movie output, Lawrie Brewster's Hex Media is currently Kickstarting a plush book of original short stories inspired by the creatures in their films... with the added bonus of an appendix featuring RPG statistics for bringing these beasts to your tabletop games.
The campaign for The Book Of Beastly Creatures, which has already sailed past its initial funding goal, runs until July 9.
On the Kickstarter page, Lawrie explains:
"We've set up Hex Arcana Publishing in tribute to the spirit of 1970s and 80s genre books that combined chilling tales with gorgeous illustrated artwork.Check out the campaign's Kickstarter page for more information on the various buy-in levels, sample art work, stretch goals, and details of their back catalogue of horror flicks.
The Book of Beastly Creatures is our first book, a hefty, hardback volume of 18 horror stories, with full-colour illustrations, and an appendix which features RPG rules for our monsters, using the Open Game License.
Each terrifying story stars a different monster, spectre, or demonic entity, with inspiration from a wide set of influences, from ancient mythology, to the supernatural, and the endless horrors of the cosmos."
It's worth noting that the books are already printed and ready to ship, so - all being well - they can be dispatched a few weeks after the campaign draws to a close.
