The Challenge

As part of Privateer Press' reboot of our Iron Kingdoms role-playing game to 5e standards (if you know, you know), we created a brand new Monsternomicon, which had not been updated since 2007!

Our game developers revised old characters and created new ones, while I helped the art director go through the archives of art to find illustrations appropriate for each creature and non-player character.

I made sure the design of the pages met the 5e standards RPG players are used to, and composed the elements to best showcase the illustrations from our catalog and that the information was easy for the players to use.

This project was so popular, and there were so many beasts we didn't have room to cover, that we published another Monsternomicon a couple of years later, and are working on a third.
