It all started a long time ago in a time and place of origins unknown. Maybe you met a man on the shore of Talyon or a mistrusting drunkard of Netherseal -- they both could give you quite contradicting answers of who the book belonged to, and who wrote it. The book is said to contain everything from abstract ramblings about old lost places, the most macabre monsters hidden in the far reaches of the known worlds, long lost concoctions for aching knees, and just about anything off-topic for whatever title the book originally had.

Anyway, the book is lost and its pages torn from its cover, and while the loss of an old tome is filled with melancholy, not many can actually say that they have missed it. There are many more books in the world, most of them written by writers who knew what they were writing about. The Book of Monsters and Maps was obscure and relatively unknown for the most part, but it did have a few owners in recent times. Most of those still living give wildly different stories of the book's fate.

And then we come to the current state of affairs -- a few souls have gathered a small amount of their resources to the common goal of finding the lost pages of The Book of Monsters and Maps. One might think it was better to let it remain lost, but this intrepid group of dedicated and tenacious folk have come together to see the book complete once again. Rumours have already begun to spread in the secluded chambers of the Academical Society -- that the real reasons for this may be -- that it could contain secrets to the hidden map to the Halls of King Usher or something far more diabolical..."

Jim is creating the pages of "the lost monster and map manual"
I'm gonna work on a manual full of RPG compatible monsters and maps. These will be A5 size printable digital copies for the patreons, and the project has no physical part, and why that is is explained further down.
I promise nothing but it may very well be that a lot of extra appendix pages will emerge for free and hopefully seasonal themes.
Yeah, well.... let us see what will happen.
 
Why a new approach?
While my wish for this project were to make a physical postcard at a certain size it proved to time consuming for my own best. I work full time and have two children, so I guess I got a bit over my head, even if it may sound like a small feat, but I cut those card, had to make the frame and then all the printing. Life always seem to have a way of overwhelming you while you least want it to.
