Grandpappy Cromdar’s Whizbang Zoo!, a fantastic off-the-wall bestiary and dungeon location, is now available to buy on both DriveThruRPG [AL] and RPGNow [AL] for $5.00. Written and illustrated by David Lewis Johnson, this small format 52-book page is full of some of the most amazing and bizarre creatures that could and should find a place in your game, whether it be fantasy, science fiction, or post-apocalyptic in nature.
One of the great things David has done is not only provide stats for the creatures that can be used with any game, making it system-neutral, but in the stat blocks has also listed such things as “As Big As”, “Smells Like”, “Sounds Like”, “Favorite Pastime”, and “Turnoffs”. I’ve included a picture of the Lil’ Gulu, one of my favorites from the book, below but some of the others in here are much more bizarre. There are 22 monsters in here, a 126 room dungeon, some games, and plenty of fun to take your characters from levels 1-5. If you’ve ever wanted to inject some sort of havoc and elements of the video game Borderlands into one of your games, this is an ideal product to do it with.
