2020 Book Project

This Years Theme: World Building
It's 2020 and with Heroes & Villains wrapping up and the book slated to come out towards the end of February early March, I wanted to take the time to introduce this years project, Gods & Monsters. 
Taking some ideas I had from last year and refining them, I wanted to theme this years designs around world building. I have a thing for Eldritch Horror, Lovecraftian style fantasy with unknowable cosmic horrors and wanted to create a full series with your help of characters and creatures that live in a world touched by the unfathomable unknown. There will be three categories for this series, Monsters, beasts that live in the world and have been corrupted. Mortals, individuals living, working and adventuring in this strange world and Harbingers, mortal creatures or people who have transcended to become cosmic monsters with godlike powers. 

Backstory: For each entry I will write up a short backstory about them. These can either be used by the commissioner or discarded. I just thought it would be fun to actually do a short write up for each entry so everything fits into the world.

Corruption:
Living in a world of magic and monsters has gotten the attention of horrors from beyond the stars. Though these unknowable beings can not manifest into the world (not without some help) they have seeded their influence and corrupted the weak willed or even willing with promises of power and more. When creating a character Monster or Mortal, you can pick any of the first 3 ranks of corruption to add flavor to your character. This is Lovecraftian style horror so the higher the rank of corruption the more otherworldly the monster or character will start to look  
  • Rank 1: Slight, still recognizable as "normal". (Appears as normal creature or character)
  • Rank 2: Minor, showing small signs of corruption. (Appears to have have undergone some small physical mutation, tentacles for hair, extra eyes etc) 
  • Rank 3: Major, shows obvious signs of corruption. (Appears to have undergone major mutations, though retains some mortal semblance, is obviously monstrous)
  • Rank 4: Chaos, has transcended mortal form to become something, other. (Reserved for Harbingers, beings who have transcended mortal form and become god like)
Alignment: 
Though the world is corrupted, corruption doesn't always mean "evil". A being can still be corrupted yet retail its self and values, thus alignment plays an important part in character creation. You can pick good or evil for character creation. I have once again neglected to use neutral because it's had to distinctly showcase "neutral" in a visual means. 

What You'll Get:
  • Each design will be 100% unique and themed to the world we'll build together. 
  • You'll be recognized in the final book.
  • Short backstory for your creature or character.
Monsters: $47
Pick any creature, this is a fantasy setting so any sort of creature from mythology or fantasy. Bestiary designs will not have elaborate costumes or accessories. Monsters can only have a maximum corruption rank of 3. 

Mortals: $65
Create a unique character that lives in a world touched by cosmic corruption. This character can be any sentient species. You'll get to pick your class, alignment and chaos level to make this character more unique and fun. These characters will have costumes, weapons and accessories fitting with their class, alignment and corruption rank. Mortals can only have a maximum corruption rank of 3. Please note, you can pick things that are technically "immortal" like vampires or undead, but they still count as mortal races.

Harbingers: $100
Being twisted by corruption these god like beings have transcended their monstrous and mortal forms. Though they retain some semblance of their original form these beings, good or evil have become like the nameless ones of the cosmos. Their forms twisted with additional appendages, tentacles and eyes that see the infinite. Like mortal designs, you'll get to pick your class and alignment and have a rank 4 of corruption. These character will be highly detailed with elaborate costumes and accessories befitting their god like powers.
