The Random Esoteric Creature Generator for Classic Fantasy Role-Playing Games and Their Modern Simulacra, take two. OUT NOW


"Looking to instill a little fear in your game? Then look no further!

Nothing brings the thrill – and terror – of discovery to a game like new monsters. Faced with the unknown, mighty-thewed heroes tremble in their hauberks, wizened wizards fumble with their spell books, and even the most audacious of rogues hesitate before plunging into battle.

Nevermore worry that your players have memorized every monster’s stat, power and weakness. Nevermore resort to tired fantasy clichés, and worn out monsters fought a thousand times before. The Random Esoteric Creature Generator ensures that each monster your PCs cross is unique, unexpected, and best of all – unknown. With an unlimited number of horrific combinations, this is the last monster book you will ever need.

Bring terror back to the table with the Random Esoteric Creature Generator!

  1. Very cool. I have got to keep a lookout for this in my local stores. I will report back upon sighting!

  2. Very nice. I'll be quite curious to see how the new version differs from the old, as well as how Goodman presents the material in terms of layout and accompanying art.

  3. Awesome! Congrats! I'll definitely keep a looout for it at my FLGS; they stock everything from Goodman Games.

  4. >>I'll be quite curious to see how the new version differs from the old

    As far as I know, it's just the typos (all of them I hope... :P) fixed, the introduction rewritten, and the naughty language cleaned up.

  5. Wow, very cool! Think I'll have to pick up a copy.
