Dungeons and Dragons just released a new project featuring monsters originally designed by kids. This small monster compendium is being sold as part of Dungeons & Dragons’ recent charity partnership with Extra Life.
Extra Life is the gaming division of Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Every year, gamers and corporations raise money for charity through tournaments and events, such as Final Fantasy 14 vying for the number one spot in the world every time a new raid is introduced in the game.
Now, Wizards of the Coast is running a charity campaign with Extra Life, which includes a series of new creatures from the first volume of Misplaced Monsters: Each of these unique and colorful creatures was designed by kids at Seattle Children’s Hospital, then transformed into full-blown Dungeons & Dragons monsters by Wizards of the Coast. Each of the six monsters features the kid’s original concept alongside a fully realized version rendered by a professional artist.
Misplaced Monsters : The six creatures in the first volume are :
Coral: is a flying unicorn mermaid who can summon magical bubbles from her horn. Dandylion: is a friendly lion made of flowers and leaves who tends gardens and fields in Feywild. Rain: is a flying unicorn cat who fights evil with glitter and heals friends with rainbows. Scrappers: Scramble enemy constructs with wires and power punches. Seth the Shapeshifting Dragon: A slippery sea snake. Sheldon the Blueberry Dragon: is a friendly dragon that travels through space to collect and eat blueberries. Despite their comical appearance and challenge ratings ranging from 5 to 10, these monsters are no joke. These creatures are balanced in Dungeons and Dragons, and with their powerful and unique abilities, any of them can be a suitable addition to even the most serious of campaigns. Players can purchase the Misplaced Monsters: Volume One for $6, or they can purchase individual stat blocks if they prefer; either way, all proceeds from this purchase will go directly to Seattle Children’s Hospital and Autism Center.
This isn’t the first time Dungeons & Dragons has worked with Extra Life in the past. It previously featured playable Turtle Packs for Turtle, Seal and Frogman respectively, Lokahar Rise and a Gram above, as well as exciting mini-adventures including The Lost Kwalish Lab and Infernal Machine Rebuild. Players can still purchase these charismatic public welfare products on DD Beyond, and the proceeds will still go directly to Extra Life.
Dungeons and Dragons is available now.
