That being said, I'm really looking forward to the monster round. It's just my personal taste, but I find monsters and monster-design to be the single most interesting and exciting area of RPG design. This holds true when I play in or run games, too—it's always a highlight of the evening for me when dangerous monsters appear on the tabletop. I took these photos of a half-fiend minotaur out of that same enthusiasm for monsters.
