Alrighty, will wait (im)patiently then for this entry to come out.
Keep holding my feet to the coals until I have something ready.
Naturally. So you haven't actually started working on any of this in earnest, correct? Still finishing your other project (visual novel was it?) first?
I had all the prep done for the 5E project ( "F.O.I." )to replace Rise of the Cyberdevils (which required too many stat blocks once I worked everything out). So I might still do one or both at some point.
I have early prep for the Epic Bestiary Addendum A mostly completed.
I am working on the comic book though yes. About 105 pages inked and 45 coloured at this point (of 140 ish).
That is definitely the case. Just don't get too hung up on the category names. I reckon people are more interested in epic stuff in general (at least the crowd of players you are targeting with these addendums) and will be happy with monsters of any kind, than being concerned that the various categories are aptly named. I'm pretty convinced that all of the titles you have listed will draw sufficient attention as is.
I have decided on the categories for the first addendum. I just need to streamline things a bit. Some of the entries require 4 monsters to really explain and that is messing up my 16 monsters (soft) limit.
For instance I have this race that on the one hand are enemies of the gods but I want the entry level versions in around the quasi-deity level.
But getting excited about the entries themselves and came up with some interesting ideas today for the book in general.
Gotcha. Cool concept now that I get what they are supposed to be. Guess this would be one category name that could have a more evocative title , though unsure what a better name would be.
Demon Vampires sounds a bit generic even if its pretty apt.
Man, yet another great sounding idea that never saw the light of day. Really tough to see all these ideas that are going to waste because of mechanical/time issues.
Just my own stupidity/procrastination with a dose of real life getting in the way. Rise of the Cyberdevils was the first of three linked adventures and it was super-epic stuff. Hopefully once I get working on smaller projects I can finish it up.
How about Antediluvian Vampires? Seeing as vampires are for me not just (or even mainly) about being bats, the association escaped me when I read this title.
I'm considering using Antediluvians for another project, plus the Nosferatu are not Earthly and thus Antediluvian doesn't really fit them.
Then I hope you get it. I guess it wouldn't be a product worth selling without a statblock...
I am sure there will be lots of people willing to help out here.
Well, I'm a sucker for good art, but (as pointed out more than once now) I'm way more interested in the flavor and world-building of your ideas than anything else.
Understandable. I should really publish in 1st Edition format and do a pantheon each week.
This is why it pains me always to read snippets about your ideas and then see them get lost in the process of actually getting them published. May it be due to a clunky, time-consuming system, delays of artwork, or other stuff. Especially when any of this extra stuff is not that important to me personally (would pay just as much for a pdf filled with only descriptive text than for one with statblocks and art, at least when you are the publisher!).
Well lets see how I get on this time.
Anyway, enough of me complaining. I would ask if you might reveal some more info about each of the listed categories-mainly to keep this interesting discussion from dying down as well-, but you were already rather reserved about the Atomic Demons, so I doubt there is much hope for more.
Well some stuff I don't want to spoil. But I'll give you a little more on Atomic Demons, the original sextet of classic AD&D demons were mainly based on the elements ranked Type I (Vrock) to Type VI (Balor). The Atomic Demons extend those types from Type VII to Type X, but go beyond mere elements. Of course these demons were even more chaotic and wild and thus are not a part of the Demonium hierarchy.
