Scarred Lands Creature Collection “Encounter Packs”

Not only will the Scarred Lands Creature Collection for 5th Edition be chock full of the best monsters from the history of the Creature Collection. It’ll also have an appendix of “encounter packs” like this one. These will offer a location with battle map and suggested foes to drop into your campaign! We’ve redacted some spoiler info from this sample, The Temple of the Stars, just in case you play it!

The Creature Collection will hit Kickstarter very soon!

Creature Collection Page-edge Icons

Did you grab our free preview of monsters from the upcoming Scarred Lands Creature Collection for 5e? It’s available for free here:

Something you might have spotted is the icons on the edge of each page. We’ve added these to make the Creature Collection as useful and as easy to use as possible. 

Using these means we can keep the entire Collection alphabetised, so if you know the name of the creature you want, you’ll be able to find it easily. 

If however you want some suggestions for suitable Challenge Ratings, or creatures that inhabit specific terrain? Then that’s where the page-edge icons can help!

Here’s a look at what the symbols mean:

Scarred Lands Creature Collection: First Free Preview!

The original monster book is back! In this free preview you can get a glimpse into the world of Scarred Lands, and the adversaries that await!

About Scarred Lands:

This is a world shaped by gods and monsters, and only the greatest of heroes can expect to be counted among them. The most populous continent of Scarn, Ghelspad, plays host to vast unexplored regions, hides unsolved riddles from ancient cultures, and taunts adventures with the promise of undiscovered riches hidden among the ruins of older civilizations. 

Yet the myths of the Scarred Lands are relatively recent events. The effects of the Titanswar still ripple through the world, and the heroines and villains of many of these stories are part of living memory, if not still living.

BEOWULF Layout Design

Work continues on BEOWULF, our two-player game set in Anglo-Saxon myth for 5e, and we’ll have a new designer diary for you soon.

Meanwhile, here’s another look at a sample page layout by graphic design wizard Paul Bourne:

And if you like the look of those icons and emblems, you can get them on a variety of sweet, sweet merch here.
