About Handimonsters

Every month Handimonsters brings you monsters for your 5e game!


With an experienced team of 5e designers, artists, and graphic designers, we're here to provide you with a steady stream of new foes to challenge your players!

Each month there are free monsters, monsters for patrons, and even more monsters for the higher tiers. We have VTT tokens, top-down tokens, paper minis, and art cards!

And if things go well, we'll also have STL files for 3d printing.

All of our monsters come as a PDF file with a beautiful and original piece of art, a description to inspire their use at your table that's just bursting with ideas.


Meant for play
We love monsters that work at the table. That means they have an interesting feature related to the rules and are designed to provide an interesting challenge: they're not just a list of stats and a bunch of HP. They also have engaging lore which gives them a place in your game world, and hooks to inspire you as GM and for your players to grab onto at the table.

Every month you can get up to four new monsters to surprise and delight you as a GM, and challenge and horrify your players. Because we supply PDFs direct to you, your players won't have a chance to have read up on the monsters we make!


Suited to all budgets
We've designed Handimonsters to work for as many different budgets as humanly possible. Every month we'll be giving a monster away for free. So you probably want to bookmark this page for that reason alone. Hit the "free" tag to see what's available for free.

Loyalty is rewarded
When you join, you'll get instant access to the entire back catalogue of monsters.



So how does it work?
You can become a patron right away. Simply choose the tier you're happy with, and join us!

Each tier gets a different amount of benefits.

You'll be charged for your first month immediately, and then on the first of each month. We plan to give you as much bang for your monster buck as possible!

You're not locked in, you pay one month at a time, and your subscription can be canceled at any time. If you like what you see, a yearly option is available at a discount.

We've chosen the monthly model so that it's very clear what you will pay, and what you will get each month, with no surprises.

You can move up and down the tiers as you choose, month by month.

Who are we?
Handimonsters is run by Handiwork Games.

Our lead designer at Handimonsters is Jacob Rodgers. Jacob has done tons of very highly-regarded work in the 5e space, from Adventures in Middle-earth, BEOWULF: Age of Heroes, Scarred Lands Creature Collection 5e, to Symbaroum 5e. Jacob really knows the 5e system inside out, and his demo games at Gen Con are highly sought after.

Most of our art is by Scott Purdy. Scott is likewise an industry veteran, and it would be quicker to list the companies Scott has not worked for. Scott's preferred subject is MONSTERS, and it's easy to see why. He's a brilliant artist.

Our layout and graphic design is by Paul Bourne. Paul is without doubt one of the most talented and meticulous layout artists in the business. He's the graphic design powerhouse behind the look of The One Ring Roleplaying Game 1e, and countless other Cubicle 7 titles. Now at Handiwork Games, Paul continues to delight both those well-versed in layout, and those who just enjoy a cool logo and an easy to read page.

Overseeing all of this is Jon Hodgson. Jon set up Handiwork Games in 2019, after a decade of working at Cubicle 7. Known best for his art on The One Ring Roleplaying Game, Jon has worked as an artist, writer, art director, and creative director for dozens of different gaming companies in a 20-year career. He might occasionally be persuaded to make some art for Handimonsters!
