... for Game Masters, Artists, Publishers, and Monster fans!.

During eight months of 2013 'Monsters By Email' ran as a subscription service.

'Creature Collection 1' and 'Creature Collection 2' both include:

Original Creature Illustrations:
All creature images are provided as layered PSDs, PNGs, TIFFs and JPGs - 7000 pixels wide or tall. Additional screen resolution JPGs are also provided. The creatures are painted on white, and come on a separate layer in the PSDs, and free from background in the PNG file format. All concepts and illustrations are by Nicholas Cloister.

Creature Descriptions
All creatures come with inspirational, well written, rpg-adapted creature descriptions, system free stats, and suggestions on how to use them in RPG campaigns. All is presented in a nicely designed PDF, which also includes the illustrations of the creatures.
