Awkward on both land and in the water, the Jwarnen gecko is home to both and neither. Because of their docile demeanor and inability to escape even the simplest of cages, they are desirable pets. There is a belief that their pale grey bodies excrete oils that have restorative properties. It is not uncommon to find elderly Fullerines with one or more Jwarnen geckos living mostly symbiotically in their mouths in the hopes that their youth will return.

The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia COMING TO KICKSTARTER FEB 29!

The time has finally come! Soon, you will be able to travel to the planet of Kiervis and explore the Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia. What mysteries walk to streets at night? What dangers dwell below the ground? Where can you buy the best drinks? You will learn all this and more. ArtOrder and I are excited to be able to announce that on February 29th, the Kickstarter for my book will finally launch. 

The book is done. The art is drawn. The stories are written. All we need now is your support to have the book printed. Here is a peek behind the curtain to see what we have been working on all this time.

The Aberrant Stilter entry.
Each entry is made up of several different voices and points of view. Learn more about the Bazaar as you learn about each entry.

But wait, why make one book when you can make two books! As part of the Kickstarter, you will be able to acquire a pocket guide that contains 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons stats for the monsters in the main book. This guide is set in the world the Grand Bazaar and contains more writing about the Bazaar and those living in it.

Bring my monsters to your gaming table as your players explore the Grand Bazaar!

You know what, why make two books when you can make THREE books! Also, as a part of the Kickstarter, you will be able to acquire the Grand Coloring Book of Ethra VanDalia. This coloring book features all of the main art created in the book as line art so that you can add your own colors.

Learn more about the Bazaar in rhyming pairs in the coloring book!

All images are not final. More information about all this will be coming to you as soon as it is available! Spread the word, it is the time!
