Love coloring, then you need a dungeon monster coloring book! Dungeon Monsters & Tavern Tales: A Gamer’s A to Z Coloring Book with Short Stories is an alphabetic menagerie of monsters. After all, why should kids have all the fun?
Our favorite part of D&D has always been imagining the amazing creatures that we encounter. What is D&D without fabulous monsters? It’s just people sitting around rolling dice. So we thought we would bring some of those lovely beasties to life. Why color butterflies and bunnies when we could be coloring minotaur and kraken or a whole monster coloring book?
Written and illustrated by Catherine Thrush, the book began with the images. While drawing Catherine realized that coloring both sides of the paper might be a problem if markers are your medium of choice. Since she is a writer as well as an artist, she decided to create a short story about the image to go on the back of each page. Straight up adventures, fractured fairy tales, noir detective stories, we got something for everyone. A few of the stories contain “colorful” language, but then, it is a grown-up coloring book.
A handful of the characters are recurring; some are characters we or our friends played in adventures. Nearly every story includes a tavern, pub or inn in some fashion. That’s our homage to how many adventures have started or ended there, both in the real world and the world of RPGs. Why the alphabet? Well, we just liked the idea of having a definite beginning and end.
Each colorable image comes with a short story about what happened in the image on the reverse side. Pages are perforated so you can take out your favorite image/story to frame or share.
