That's a really good idea, one of the things I love about VTTs is the ability to have things all set up beforehand, this is a great way to replicate that effect face-to-face


It really works for me

As a GM I really enjoy inventing tactics for the creatures my players encounter. There is almost nothing as funny as watching the players faces, when they are really struggeling with some weak opponents, that they would normaly have absolutely no problem defeating. A lot of low level creatures can be very menacing when they apply the right strategy. I would not be able to plan my encounters with that level of strategy if I could not place the creatures on my maps in advance

: Oh it only 6 orc archers behind a low wall, lets slaughter them.
: Yes lets get the....arhh
: Ohhhh **** we just lost the dwarf to the hidden pit trap.
: Uhh guys take care where you step.
: Ohh ok were past the pit traps run for them.
: Arr "crash" this grass is slippery and it smells like oil I think I hurt my leg.
: **** back back they have fire arrows. RUN.
: Ups we can't pass the pit traps while running.
: ARRRRR the fire is getting past my armour.

Hello everyone -

Dan thanks for the great creatures! I do have a problem downloading the minotaurs though - the only ones out of the set. I can download the zip file - but then my computer refuses to read the individual PNG files and it won't let me pull them into a BRPG or DJ folder. Strange. I dont know if there is some kind of copy protection on the individual files? I have tried dl'ing them with both IE and FF.

As for requests - I'd love to see some Umber Hulks...or even a Bulette...one of my old favorites. Though I dont know if they are considered proprietary...

EDIT: It looks like Umber Hulks are proprietary...maybe I should call it a Brown Juggernaut?

Make sure to check out the token packs at Four Ugly Monsters too

Hmm, I can open the zip and put the Minotaurs in folders just fine

I have the exact same problem.
Could they be posted as individual PNGs please. Or perhaps try to upload them again in a new zipfile.

I had that problem when I first tried to unzip the files using MacOS X's
built-in unzipping utility (BOMArchiveHelper). Then I tried using StuffIt
Expander 10.0 (it's free to download) and it unzipped just fine.

The lack of creatures is mostly due to the fact that when printing a map, you often don't like to have these already on there. You can't move them around once they are printed on the map
That's also why you will find a lot of dead versions of creatures on here and why you will always get the request for dead versions. Those can be static on a map


Well I have to agree, but when you place, for example, a bench on a map the player can't move it around the room, so it also makes the map static! Doesn't it?

Guys, it's my plan do make top down tokens of all D&D monsters and it may take months, maybe an year.

For some monsters, the more complex ones, there are no available models, so I will have to develop my own models and it's gonna be a hard time!

To post nice creatures I also have to make custom textures and it takes time too. My free time is really scarce so I can't post every sunday, it's getting just impracticable.

I'm not stopping just slowing down.

That's a pretty lofty goal you've set for yourself, DD.

But an admirable one.

And if you can do even half of Monster Manual 1, you'll be making a lot of people very, very happy.

Oh man I really hope you do, there must be thousands of creatures in the D&D books
It will be an immense task, but one well worth commiting oneself to. I just wish I had an ounce of your 3D talent so that I could help you.
But I for one will be the first to offer you my outmost moral support on your journey to become the brightest star in the world of creature makers.
Please don't hesitate to ask questions I'm sure this community will rally to your cause.

Sorry Faebinder, the Gorgons are not finished yet.

Instead I'm posting some Chimeras. Hope you like it.
