This piece depicts a deformed woman, covered in a mass of eyes.

Some spies do their deeds in the shadows, hidden completely from sight. Disguises of all kinds, magical and mundane, let them do their work. Others ‘hide’ in plain sight, relying on people’s horror, disgust, and even compassion to complete their work – some without even knowing that is what they are doing. Dark magic can twist people into grotesque puppets, and certain inheritors of the magic of the Tyrant Orb delight in making ‘improvements’ to their victims.

This piece depicts a member of the Lovecraftian Great Race of Yith.

The Great Race’s members were immense rugose cones ten feet high, and with head and other organs attached to foot-thick, distensible limbs spreading from the apexes. They spoke by the clicking or scraping of huge paws or claws attached to the end of two of their four limbs, and walked by the expansion and contraction of a viscous layer attached to their vast, ten-foot bases.

#RPG – A Month of Monsters – Doppelganger Perfectionist

This piece depicts a grey alien, or perhaps something else.

Doppelganger perfectionists seek a deeper, more perfect understanding of the people and things that they imitate. Their replication of other people and creatures goes deeper and allows them to replicate them more perfectly – even to the point of recreating supernatural abilities. Of course, gaining this specialist knowledge requires getting under the skin of their subjects – literally.

This piece depicts a dragon in a modern setting.

Dragons of Steel have adapted themselves to modern, futuristic or planar settings of technology and machinery by exposing the eggs of metallic dragons to electricity and unusual materials to coax them into developing in a different way. Steel dragons eschew magic but have an abiding fascination for technology and devices. For their hoards they gather technological items and rare materials, rather than things with – necessarily – an innate value

#RPG – A Month of Monsters – Corpse Ooze

This piece depicts a corpse or zombie, riddled with fungus or ooze.

Corpse-Ooze settles in and gestates within dead bodies, gradually eating them from the inside out until the entirety of the husk is consumed, after which the ooze dries and flakes, sending its spores out into the surrounding area to wait for more corpses. The ooze can drag a body across the ground, using it as armour much as a hermit crab might use a shell, and it will attack with its flagella in order to seek new hosts to infect and consume. Of particular concern are the risen dead – zombies – which when infected with corpse-ooze continue to shamble around and lend both the zombie and the ooze combined strength and durability.

#RPG – A Month of Monsters – The Byakhee

This piece depicts a Lovecraftian Byakhee.

Out of the unimaginable blackness beyond the gangrenous glare of that cold flame, out of the Tartarean leagues through which that oily river rolled uncanny, unheard, and unsuspected, there flopped rhythmically a horde of tame, trained, hybrid winged things that no sound eye could ever wholly grasp, or sound brain ever wholly remember. They were not altogether crows, nor moles, nor buzzards, nor ants, nor vampire bats, nor decomposed human beings, but something I cannot and must not recall. They flopped limply along, half with their webbed feet and half with their membranous wings; and as they reached the throng of celebrants the cowled figures seized and mounted them, and rode off one by one along the reaches of that unlighted river, into pits and galleries of panic where poison springs feed frightful and undiscoverable cataracts.

#RPG – A Month of Monsters – Goblin Champion

This piece depicts the hideous visage of a troll, ogre, or goblinoid.

Goblin champions are chosen from amongst the most tenacious and largest of their fighters. They’re bred for greater size, strength and fed the best of the food to bulk them up, until they’re able to stand toe-to-toe with humans and other interlopers. Goblin champions have more to fight for than most, and stand to lose the most. Their bulk and relative size also make them useful draws for enemy attacks, while their smaller brethren can move in from the flanks or establish a new ambush point.
