Monsters in the Dreamlands
I like making these character and monster murals because I think it helps immerse players in the world they are gaming in. As I mentioned in my last post, I’m working on campaign set in a version of Lovecraft’s Dreamlands. One more physical and defined, less ethereal with almost none of the dream rules and background that is featured in most pastiches. I like the idea of their being some connection with our own Earth and the Dreamlands (which I’m tentatively calling Gaea) through certain gates and drug-induced rituals, but such connections have become almost non-existent as both worlds travel further apart in space and time.
Anyway, here are some of the monsters that may be encountered in Gaea (the Dreamlands).
These illustrations are taken from various sources around the internet (mostly Paizo, the Voormis is from concept art for the Conan MMO, and the Shoggoth was created by Manzanado and is out on DeviantArt).
