“Faerie Fire” – an RPG bestiary featuring cloudscape contributors

If you are a fan of role-playing games or great monster art, then you should know that Faerie Fire has started its kickstarter. This is a Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition supplement masterminded by prominent Cloudscape contributor Shannon Campbell that explores the bizarre world of the fairies with numerous new monsters and magical items. Faerie Fire is inspired by the neon noir aesthetic of the late 80s, with a touch of Trapper Keeper, and a spot of 90s Lisa Frank thrown in for good measure. With magic reminiscent of neon lights and holograms, and a fey court full of glamour, the fairy wilds are filled with creatures dazzling and deadly in equal measure.

Faerie Fire features numerous artists who also have contributed to Cloudscape books, including Renee Nault, Nina Matsumoto, Sfe Monster, and Alina Pete. Part artbook, part bestiary, Faerie Fire is guaranteed to be a stunning addition to your bookshelf. To order it and various other great perks, go to the Faerie Fire Kickstarter page.

D&D Bestiary Seeking Monsters

Shannon Campbell, creator of VanCAF and frequent contributor to Cloudscape Comics, is creating a bestiary for Dungeons & Dragons, and is seeking monster illustrations for it.

Faerie Fire is a collection of monsters, characters, and rare items from the wild and untamed faerie realm.  Artists can either pitch an original monster idea or sign-up to have a monster assigned to them. All the writing in the final book will be handled by Shannon and two game designers. The ascetic of the book is neon noir, check out the Faerie Fire Neon Noir page for examples of that style.

The book will pay $50 USD per monster, with more pay unlocked as Kickstarter stretch goals. The deadline for all pitches is September 28th, but art won’t be due until December. For more information, visit the Faerie Fire tumblr.
