This supplement has 25 new monsters of all types available for a wide array of adventures. There are plants, undead, monstrosities, and celestials. And probably the most interesting part are seven fey creatures that each represent one of the seven deadly sins! Think of the adventures you could base off of these monsters! 

Each Monster has a brief background and all the stats necessary to work into your one-shots or campaigns. Please leave a review and rating as it helps to promote my writing. And be sure to check out my other content available on DMsGuild.com!

I'll leave my review here since I cannot yet put it under reviews. These creatures are creative, distinct from a lot of what is currently available, of wide-ranging power level (from what I would guess is a CR 2-3 variant of a Giant Spider to an Ethereal Dragon that rivals the Tarrasque in power level while being an entirely different combat scenario from it, at least at first glance).

There should definitely be some effort to apply CR ratings and Hit Dice here. Even if the CR ratings are just rough estimates (I mean, what else is CR but a rough estimate?). Some of these monsters seem deceptively powerful. Hit Dice are *absolutely needed* because some abilities (e.g. Circle of the Shepherd's summoning boost) mechanically depend on the number of hit dice a creature has.

That said, they're all interesting creatures. And as a free resource? Yes please.

Thank you so much for the comment. I especially appreciate your comment about hit dice because I hadn't taken certain class/subclass abilities into perspective like that. To me, hit dice was always just giving the DM the opportunity to change a monster's hit point amount. I'm going to be working on CR and Hit Dice, please bear with me. I'll keep it as a Pay What You Want supplement until then.

I appreciate all the comments and concerns you've all left! Some of the style choices, I probably won't change, but I will take that into account going forward. As for the CR and the Hit Dice, it will take me awhile to update, but I will work on this. I don't personally use CR ratings and feel they are rather arbitrary, but since I'm clearly in the minority with that, I will begin working on it. Bear with me for now.

As it won't recognize my 'Purchaser' level yet (Typical guild stuff around), I'll add my comments here:

I loved the work put into this and can see myself using some of these in my games.

Note the following (in no particular order of importance):

* Please add the CR ratings as this helps DM's in their judgment of what fits within their games.
* Please add the HD ... a must in determining what the creature's maximum hit points if the DM chooses to go that route ... also helps in those of us that wish to determine if your math is correct for the averages you've given.
* I love the use of art for each creature, even if, as some have noted, some of them are other recognized creatures from other publications. The fact that you tried is a credit to you! My only concern is that they do not appear in the same consistent location within the stat block each time (this is off-putting to the eye, leading to an annoying read). Placing each consistently under the size and alignment...See more

The creatures have no CR listed . They also need HD listed next to their HP . The pics are a little confusing as well as they are often from other DND monsters . Neat ideas though .

I second this. I like the feel of the creatures, but really they should have HD breakdown and CRs. I did see on your cover page you put "No CRs", but you can edit this and add them. Please do.

I figured that some of the artwork was probably used in other editions. I used free and copyright free content available on DMsGuild for all the artwork so I didn't have to commission each piece. And I've always felt that having a visual representation of the monster is best so you can better describe it to your players. That being said, thank you so much for the comment and I will take this into account going forward. As for the CR ratings, please bear with me as I work on this.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
