Spooky season is upon us! To celebrate this delightfully frightful time of year, enjoy a new creature for your Grimmgard encounters: the BAYALBEEST!
This horrifying predator's coat of coarse, hay-like fur provides it with natural camouflage. At rest, the bayalbeest sits and appears as a 10-foot haystack, or lies down and appears as a mound of thick dry grass. Beneath this fur, the bayalbeest's body is a tangle of brittle, jagged, segmented appendages easily mistaken for tree branches. Sneaking up and unleashing a trumpeting howl, the bayalbeest seizes prey in its pincers and shreds it into bits to be eaten.
Size: 20 feet tall
Darkvision: Can see in darkness with no penalties.
Horrifying: With a successful Sneak Attack, the bayalbeest inflicts 3D Horror Damage on target before making attack roll.
The live interview, in honor of Grimmgard's upcoming 4th anniversary, will go in-depth on the mechanics of the game, the lore of the Grimmgard world, info on upcoming projects, and a few special announcements for the community!
Big thanks for Bridgyspace for inviting me for this special livestream!
2018 is coming to a close. What a year it has been! Grimmgard's social media presence expanded onto Instagram, connecting with other creators and gamers around the world. In the summer, we launched the official Grimmgard website right here. Fans broadcasted their fandom in selfies with Grimmgard merch, and posted fan art of Grimmgard beasts! Our community is slowly growing!
2019 has a lot in store. Conceptualizing a world filled with incredible battles, epic heroes, foul villains, and dark secrets, many stories began to take shape beyond what I could detail in a gaming book. Throughout the Grimmgard Roleplaying Game book, tantalizing tidbits can be found but are left intentionally vague. The tales will be told in future books, the first of which is being written right now!
As new year will begin with plans and hopes, the old year should end with reflection and gratitude. Special shout-outs to David "Huffychip" Smith and Ron Root, who continue to promot...

I've played tabletop roleplaying games since my early teens. My writing table is stacked with core rulebooks and addendums. Between them, under them, and even sandwiched into their pages are stacks of stapled game notes. Most of them are homebrewed characters, maps, monsters, starships, planets, weapons, and scripts. I was never just a gamer. I was a creator and storyteller right from the start. In most sessions through the years I was rarely a player and almost always the gamemaster. And why not? As a player I could only be one character at a time, only tell one story... and I had much more I wanted to tell.
In summer of 2012, my friend Greg listened as I dissected a number of RPG games and systems, listing their flaws and how they could be improved. He finally challenged me with a smirk, "Why don't you make your own game?" Being the shy, apprehensive, indecisive person I am, I grinned and declared "You know what? I will." It came together quickly... a...
