Hello! I hoped to post this yesterday, but trees decided to interact with power lines, so my access to the internet was absent for a few hours. It's been a fairly violent Spring, weather-wise. Speaking of Spring and violence, I've got a hummingbird/alligator mashup for you. I hope you enjoy the hummingator! This creature has…Read more Frightful Fridays! Hummingator
It's Friday, and I've got another monster for you. This one came about from the idea of a druid who died and returned as a ghost, and then became really upset that he or she couldn't pet doggos. So (un)naturally, the solution was to turn doggos, and other animals, into ghosts too. I hope you…Read more Frightful Fridays! Phantasmal Naturist
Hello, and welcome to the first Frightful Fridays! of 2021. Today's monster started off as a "celebration" of the previous year, and retains some of the original design I intended. Because I took the route of making it a daemon, I decided to remove its disease capabilities, since other daemons take care of that pretty…Read more Frightful Fridays! Icosadaemon
Hello, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays! I received a couple of notes on my previous offering of clockwork fowl, so I'm addressing those now. First of all, in recognition of the traditional Christmas goose, I've got a clockwork goose for you. It's not quite as mean as its real-life counterpart, but it gets the job…Read more Frightful Fridays! One More Clockwork Fowl
It's a winter celebration! Here's a giant that will help player characters commemorate the season, by turning their limbs into ice and then shattering them, but what player character wants a safe celebration? I hope you enjoy the icewrecker giant. I'll return tomorrow with a sequel to festive monsters I posted earlier this year. A…Read more Frightful Fridays! Icewrecker Giant

Looking for Players!
-OR- PORCS NOT WORCS! Orcs are one of those ubiquitous D&D monsters that have been picked up and transformed. At some point, Warhammer (and later WarCraft)'s view of orcs came to dominate D&D and Pathfinder. This great green brute is not my preference for orcs. (Or, for a time in the 3.x age, hairy fierce…Read more My Thing About Orcs
Happy day after (American) Thanksgiving! Tryptophan got to me, so I didn't post these yesterday, but, as an exciting side effect, they're getting posted on Friday. Invite your players over for a feast of gears and springs with this collection of clockwork birds, regardless of the occasion. A chicken composed of gears clucks and pecks…Read more Frightful Fridays! Clockwork Fowl
2020 being what it is, I had this one ready but completely forgot to schedule it for Friday. Friday has become more of a suggestion anyway this year. This monster is also not timely in a seasonal sense (except, perhaps, for those of you in the southern hemisphere), because it's essentially an exploding dandelion. I…Read more Frightful Fridays!
