    New Fantasy Age Monster Bestiary Needed

    While you can use monsters from Blue Rose and Dragon Age (with some conversions), I think we could use another Bestiary. It would be nice if it took a page from Starfinder's Alien Archive and added PC race info with some of the entries. For example, if they had a dhampir npc stat block beside it would be the race player options for that race.

    Between the Core, Bestiary and Companion, and with the options of redressing, beefing and modifying, I doubt there is much overwhelming need for another bestiary so soon. Modern AGE will be getting something akin to a Bestiary this year, which can likely also be plundered

    Keep in mind that on the Fantasy Age forums you might find a misbalance towards DIY folks; a lot of the content-creator/designer group wandered off waiting for something like OGL. Strangely enough the Dragon AGE group is still pretty active on monster/creature/homebrew posting. Hopefully with the Content Creation Program coming out soon we may see people wondering back, and especially with a lot of the (also upcoming) content such as the Fantasy AGE Setting coming out this year. [PLZ. K THX!]

    As a side note, I've been converting the OGL monsters from Tome of Beasts (Kobold Press). in anticipation of the CCP. If you actually run an active group let me know, I may be able to share something in a short-bit to playtest.

    You could also pick up Kobold Quarterly’s Midgard Bestiary for DAGE. $5 for iirc 60+ adversaries.

    Good to note that if you use Kobold Press Midgard Bestiary Vol 1 you still will need to do conversion on these if you are using for Fantasy AGE; attributes are DAGE and sometimes wonky. Overall though this is a good suggestion, it's a nice add-on especially if you are using their Midgard Campaign Setting book (which is Pathfinder and DAGE). Most of that book is system neutral (with PF elements) and the ending of the book has DAGE specific spells and such.

    Their setting book was a great supplement for DAGE. 50ish spells, new specializations/talents, and iirc rules for being a clockwork.

    For DAGE, the spells were an easy addition. Each new school has enough spells to be a mini-school (like blood magic). For FAGE, there’s more conversion. However, it’d be easier with the FAGE Companion option of expanded Arcana.

    I hope they do a FAGE version!

    So soon? Didn't the Bestiary come out in May or June 2017? It's been almost 2 years.

    Sure, but given the production time for Green Ronin, and the fact that it takes time as it is, I doubt it's high on the priority list to churn out Monster Manuals. But there are a tonne of options on modifying and creating your own monsters, that give GMs a lot of room to add as they see fit

    Don't forget that Titansgrave has a number of new monsters (and one new PC race), and was written for FAGE.
