"A helpful codex of monstrous creatures inspired by the myths of arid lands all over the world"

The Monster Roster is a complete and highly detailed manual of 15 unique and interesting monsters for your Dungeon World games. 

 Each creature was inspired by the real life myths and legends of desert-dwelling peoples the world over including Assyria, Mesopotamia, Mexico, Persia, the Middle East, and the North American Southwest.  Each entry includes stats, moves, detailed lore, illustration, instincts, and origin culture, plus a selection of "related" legendary figures linking them to other regions and eras- a great stepping stone for further research! 

Monster Roster: Desert Denizens is a robust showcase of arid encounters to liven up your play sessions and provide a rich cast of possible antagonists to surprise and challenge your players.  The Desert Denizens vary greatly in difficulty, scope of power, temperament, goals, and abilities, giving GMs fun and exiting new ways to get those narrative hooks that leave PCs recounting their RPG war stories forever.

For $2, this is a very impressive little roster.  While some of the creatures are familiar, others are less so, since the author has drawn on a number of different world cultures for his source material.  

Definitely something I will be referring to for a desert-based Dungeon World scenario that I am cooking up!

Thanks so much!  For sure let me know how your scenario goes, I'd love to hear how things turn out.
