Welcome to Jon Sawatsky's 5e Monsters and Treasure Patreon. I am so stoked you landed here. (Patreon art by Matt Ray.)

What's Going on Here?
I design monsters and treasure for your 5E campaign.

On the 2nd of each month I deliver a PDF booklet containing :
  • three or four monsters based on a common theme; each monster comes with lore and a solidly designed stat block
  • magical and mundane treasure linked with the monsters (usually one of each type for each monster)
You can see a sample of the booklets if you head on over to the posts page.

Patrons have the option to increase their support to receive a variety of other rewards.

Who Am I?

I am a freelance writer for Kobold Press with years of experience developing 5E content. My adventures and monsters exist in a ton of published, played, and gold-selling publications. You can purchase my work at the Kobold Press store, Drive-Thru RPG, and Amazon.

My Design Philosophy: Everyone gets to be a hero

Everything I design and write stems from my conviction that TTRPGs should welcome as wide a range of players as possible. How does this philosophy translate into something like monster design? It means I'll make monsters to suit all sorts of campaign genres and styles. I'll make both simple and sophisticated monsters filled with story and flavor. I'll make monsters to terrify, delight, slaughter, or become friends with players.

About Art
I believe in paying people money for their work. When we reach a number of patrons to support commissioning art, we will do so. I have spoken with several talented and professional fantasy artists who have agreed to provide awesome old-school art for our monsters - but good art costs money; spread the word and we'll get there!

Future Plans
I have lots of fun plans for this Patreon depending on the support it receives, including patron-only adventures, guest creators, and more!
